A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures Reviews

Sam Bathe
Fan The Fire

The story doesn't do anything near enough to keep you involved for the 88-minute runtime, aimlessly meandering forward without even a whiff of narrative structure.

You can't fault the film's message - it just doesn't know where to take it other than just pointing it out.

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.

Financial Times

The kid-flick charm of early reels, narrated with a folksy rasp by John Hurt, gives way to a ponderous eco-fable.

March 24, 2011

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.

Falls several sea miles of open water behind Pixar's Finding Nemo.

It seems guaranteed to infuriate anyone over seven.

Total Film

With endless shots of underwater landscapes propping up an episodic narrative, this is less Finding Nemo than one long screensaver.

Guardian

Turtly disappointing, turtly sanctimonious in its eco message, and turtly derived from Finding Nemo.

The National

far too reminiscent of films that have gone before it and suffers from being overly didactic about its environmental themes.

[An] amiable-enough animated tale.

If you're a 3D sceptic, this is a film you must see. The underwater world of little Sammy the turtle and his friends jumps out of the screen in a riot of colour and excitement.

A Belgian production that can boast some accomplished Finding Nemo-style underwater visuals.

A colourful distraction for kids and a pleasant dip in the ocean for those with a few more knobbles on their shell.

Daily Mirror [UK]

Originality isn't the film's strong suit and Sammy's adventures never come close to the escapades of Nemo, but the 3D certainly earns some points with the ocean brought to dazzling, spectacular, colourful life.

Five star entertainment for the under-tens, deduct two stars for everyone else.
