Our kids, ages 6 and 9, only made it half an hour into this movie because they became so upset. They, and we, couldn't believe it was rated G, and our older daughter said it was scarier than any movie she'd seen. Contrary to showing "nothing particularly disturbing," the film is a highly dramatized, frightening, up-close-and-personal view of the many perils of turtles' young lives. The photography/videography was exceptional and stunning, but it also made every situation so realistic that it was very frightening for our kids. The film's voiceover and music intentionally heightened the suspense and drama of every dangerous scenario, particularly a scene in which a cargo ship is seen barreling down on the baby turtle and other creatures. With a G rating, I was floored and distressed as a parent when the ship in fact ran over the turtle's seaweed home, killing all the animals but the turtle. (This is all shown in detail.) The baby turtle is anthropomorphosized so that kids feel the fear of the baby turtle, who is then alone and lost. In the next scene, you see an awful image of a dead baby turtle. Our kids love nature movies (March of the Penguins, Oceans, Born to Be Wild, etc.), and this movie was substantially more violent and frightening than anything in those films. Very distressing and disappointing. It's an accurate depiction of nature, to be sure, but it's not for young kids. And, again, that's based only on the first painful half-hour, as our kids couldn't tolerate continuing even though they knew the turtle would survive in the end.
