Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Though there are lovely and revelatory moments in this educational documentary about fjords, some of the drama in the narrative feels forced. Magical Fjords is about fish, fauna, flora, but some of the haunting music and animal-on-animal hunting makes it feel like a fantasy film.

Facts about creatures living in the very deep of the fjords, and their glowing, eerie eyes may intrigue kids who aren't afraid of a little submerged scare. Parents might snicker at the drama drummed up by the narrator's deep voice and creepy music -- it's a nature documentary, not Game of Thrones, people! But there's decent footage of little-seen marine life that makes the view worthwhile.
