Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    Much of what the filmmakers and their team of cinematographers capture is undeniably remarkable, but their overt attachment to certain scenes can make watching a chore.
  2. This stunningly photographed documentary captures extraordinary images of ocean-based life.
  3. 60
    The episodic structure prevents any real momentum, but Byatt and Fothergill give a visceral sense of the sea's violence and vividly capture the riot of color to be found on the ocean floor.
  4. 50
    Those looking for a refresher course on the workings of the food chain should be in heaven. All others may yearn for a sushi break.
  5. 50
    A beautiful but empty-headed documentary.
  6. The documentary isn't particularly thrilling, or even very informative, but it's almost certain to lower your blood pressure for 83 minutes.
