      Terry Lawson Detroit Free Press Absorbing. Rated: 3/4 Jul 22, 2005 Full Review Nancy Churnin Dallas Morning News A magnificent look at the teeming, wildly varied life in and around the ocean. Rated: A- Jul 15, 2005 Full Review Eleanor Ringel Cater Atlanta Journal-Constitution This is a nasty, nauseating, dispiriting movie and, to repeat, whatever you do, don't take the kids -- no matter what the G rating says.

      Audience Member This is another one of those movies I had to watch in school, and I got to say, for an educational movie, it's actually pretty good! The visuals and music are absolutely beautiful, and I was legitimately amazed with them, and while the movie dosen't have much of a focused plot, like my opinion of teenage mutant ninja turtles: out of the shadows, that's not a major problem as long as the film is still enjoyable to watch. And deep blue, is an enjoyable watch. It was a pleasant surprise and is something I'd say is worth watching at least once. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This seems to be a visually suped up David Attenborough documentary. I want these incredible moving images on my computer as a screen saver. You won't learn much. the narration is stripped down. In the Attenborough Doc this was based on they said the blue whale pop is down to 3% of 300,000. In this one they say down to 1% of 300,000. ..Hmmm. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of the greatest documentaries I've ever had the favor to experience. Incredible in visuals. Holds the presentation of many peculliar underwater species and shows parts of the lives of various wild animals. This is one of those classic pieces you need to watch in surround on a widescreen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Superb storyline and action packed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member not so much a documentary (really not enough information for that), but a collage of various scenes set in and along the oceans -- and while much of it is very beautiful, there are only a couple of scenes that I found extraordinary: the killer whales hunting the seals, the fish tornado, and the images in the very deep. The rest you have seen before, and the repetition of certain images (eg, dolphins) seem too much focused on what we humans like. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Ce n'est pas que le documentaire soit mauvais, loin de là. C'est tout simplement que je me suis fourvoyé et que j'ai cru que je démontrerais un peu d'intérêt à son écoute. Au contraire, je me suis laissé bercer par sa musique lancinante et je me suis endormi avec ma belle entre mes bras. Les images sont tout simplement magiques, si bien que j'en viens à me demander comment est-ce qu'on a pu les croquer sur le vif, car c'est bel et bien une symphonie marine qui se dessine devant nos regards émerveillés. Toutefois, il devrait y avoir un peu plus de narration. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
