Turtle: The Incredible Journey Reviews

Sheri Linden
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

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?

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...

Turtle still has cinematographer Rory McGuinness's remarkable visuals in its favor, though, and reveals how even innocuous human activites curtail the loggerheads' centuries-in-the-making migration with refreshing subtlty.
