Critic Reviews for Galapagos: The Enchanted Voyage
A few magnificent moments underwater can make it all seem worthwhile.
It's hard to resist the lumbering Galápagos tortoise, the skittering bright-orange crabs or the legions of proud black marine iguanas that sun themselves en masse on outcroppings of petrified lava.
The film is intellectually intriguing and visually exciting, but literally and figuratively only occasionally plumbs the depths of its subject.
The film is mildly informative, but things only come alive when land lizards suddenly land in your lap and when red and blue footed boobies fly over the seats.
For about the rental price of a snorkle and goggles "Galapagos" brings the experience to you - and you don't even have to get wet!
It may not be as exciting as other IMAX movies, but for travel and nature buffs it's a real treat.
