Critic Reviews for A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures
The characters are thin, the dialogue is bland and the animation is plasticky, though the 3D effects are sometimes interesting in a lurid, sub-Pixar fashion.
far too reminiscent of films that have gone before it and suffers from being overly didactic about its environmental themes.
Here, director and co-writer Ben Stassen shows as much contempt for characterisation as he did with his previous feeble effort, the offensively banal insect adventure Fly Me to the Moon.
You can't fault the film's message - it just doesn't know where to take it other than just pointing it out.
Audience Reviews for A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures
It was a cute movie lol. Loved it.
A Turtle's Tale is a dull and attempt to ripoff of the successes of Finding Nemo and though it doesn't really do anything wrong stylistically, the story is dull and humorless.
It's a small ocean out there.
A turtle born in the 50s and spends the majority of his life traveling across the ocean encountering new friends, new environmental challenges, new creatures, and potentially his mate. Shortly after finding the female turtle that may be his mate, he loses her. He searches for her as long as he can. Along the way he'll encounter old friends, make new friends, and partake in a series of adventures.
"Humans were strange creatures. Some make messes while others clean it up."
Ben Stassen, director of Fly Me to the Moon 3D and A Turtles Day 2: Sammy's Escape from Paradise, delivers a Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures. The storyline for this picture is just okay and fairly straightforward. The animation is solid and I did enjoy the characters. The voices include Melanie Griffith, Anthony Anderson, Ed Begley, Gemma Arterton, and Isabelle Fuhrman.
"And don't eat the plastic. Seaweed good. Plastic bad."
This is a movie my daughter and I recently watched off Netflix. I found it entertaining to watch the film unfold; but as an overall picture, I did not think it was anything special. This movie is worth watching once with your child but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it or add it to your DVD collection.
"Do I look like food to you?"
