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...

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.
