Boring people constantly insist that this documentary needs more narration. For once, sit down with a loved one and enjoy this breathtaking featurette that leaves a positive message about sea life. Breathtaking visuals and an amazing soundtrack that backs up this beautiful piece of work.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Narrator Pierce Brosnan does provide some tidbits, but the information is random and brief and often obvious, rendering it an unnecessary addition to a truly stunning collection of oceanic footage. In fact, the narration can be frustrating in its lack of information and inconsistency. The shark feeding frenzy would have been a great place for some extra information, but none is provided. It would have been better to provide no information at all, leaving the viewer to sit back and enjoy the often amazing and beautiful imagery.

Kids and grown-ups alike will find parts of the film enthralling and all in all, it's an interesting peek into the world of ocean life. Though the editing isn't perfect, the movie does move through many different scenes and viewers will enjoy the variety of ocean life shown.
