Critic Reviews for Turtle: The Incredible Journey

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (5) | DVD (1)

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.

Top Critic

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.

Without a disclaimer that explains what's real and not, how can viewers, including those who may already be skeptical about claims of environmental crises, trust that the whole thing hasn't been made up?

Visually resplendent.

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...

Top Critic

Standard-issue TV doc stuff geeked up to feature length and spectacle.

Deadspin

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.

Tampa Bay Times

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.

One Guy's Opinion

In this era of Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel, the project seems rather redundant.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Educational but slow docu may not keep kids' interest.

Common Sense Media

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.

Film Journal International

An engrossing documentary about the heroic 25-year pilgrimage of a loggerhead turtle.

Spirituality and Practice

Anthropomorphizes its shelled protagonist in a manner so melodramatic as to make one cringe.

I want to know how they were able to film all of that!! It was incredible to see this part of nature that you would have no chance of seeing otherwise.
