Michael Rechtshaffen Hollywood Reporter You won't be treated to any rousing choruses of "Some Enchanted Evening" in Journey to the South Pacific, but this equally exotic Imax entry proves enchanting in its own right. Mar 17, 2014 Full Review Justin Chang Variety Splendid views of marine life and the dulcet tones of narrator Cate Blanchett help a message of mild ecological alarm go down easily. Mar 17, 2014 Full Review John Hartl Seattle Times Images of dynamited fish and rising sea levels blend with a strong sense of native commitment to keeping the oceans clean. Rated: 3/4 Jan 23, 2014 Full Review Susan Granger SSG Syndicate Spectacular underwater photography! Rated: 7/10 Jun 28, 2014 Full Review Jay Stone It's a film with a positive message. And some weird-looking fish. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 6, 2014 Full Review Tony Medley Tolucan Times The colors of the reef and hundreds of different species of fish are so varied and gorgeous that it leaves you crying for more. I rarely want to see movies more than once, but I can't wait to see this one again. Rated: 10/10 Jan 14, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member for the $17 price, not very interesting Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member f.shakirahotmail.con Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a pleasant surprise for me - I hadn't planned on seeing it but missed my planned show and got the tickets on a whim. The film is amazing and captivated my kids, and I was shocked by the vitality of image and color. Go see it as this won't look the same at home.
