You're not getting the whole picture in Ocean Oasis, just the critter-cute ones. But at least the film is well shot, showing striking vistas and images both above and beneath the waves.

It's peaceful, gentle and tranquil. It's not quite the same as a vacation, but it's about as close as you're going to get on celluloid.

If you prefer nature films to be unprovocatively handsome, Oasis will be your cup of soothing tea. It may be especially useful for little folks who are getting a first view of oceanography.

A photographic marvel of sorts, and it's certainly an invaluable record of that special fishy community.

The filmmakers know how to please the eye, but it is not always the prettiest pictures that tell the best story.

The narration, although provided by an ecologist and a naturalist, is a redundant gush of New Age wonderment at sights better left to speak for themselves.

This examination of aquatic life off the shores of the Baja California peninsula of Mexico offers an engrossing way to demonstrate the virtues of the IMAX format.
