Turtle: The Incredible Journey is the story of a little loggerhead turtle, which follows in the path of her ancestors on one of the most extraordinary journeys in the natural world. Born on a beach in Florida, she rides the Gulf Stream all the way to the frozen north and ultimately swims around the entire North Atlantic to Africa and back to the beach where she was born.

A solitary long-distance traveler with prehistoric cachet, the loggerhead turtle makes a compelling subject for a nature film, as the spectacularly shot, aptly named Turtle: The Incredible Journey demonstrates, if at times too feverishly.
A smartly shot sea documentary delivers its ecological message but does suffer from an overly dramatic narration.
Nick Stringer's documentary about the 25-year migratory cycle of loggerhead turtles has some remarkable underwater footage.
It's a bit long to be as kid friendly as this educational and visually striking film is meant to be. But it will give you a renewed appreciation for who these creatures are...
Penguins march but sea turtles mostly float through instinctual rituals of reproduction, a process detailed in Turtle: The Incredible Journey. Nick Stringer's nature documentary moves about as fast as its subject, which is to say not very.
The sort of thing that will be more at home on Animal Planet than in a theatrical venue. But of its kind, it's solid classroom fare.
In this era of Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel, the project seems rather redundant.
Although I have become inured to Hollywood hype over the years, this is truly an incredible journey. The documentary is great for six year olds and sixty-six year old codgers like me who care about the future of the planet and an amazing creature.
This loving documentary contains absolutely gorgeous visuals, but too many instances of intrusive melodrama which impede an animal lover's complete immersion and enjoyment.
An engrossing documentary about the heroic 25-year pilgrimage of a loggerhead turtle.
