Alastair Fothergill's nature documentary Deep Blue consists of 90 minutes of footage of undersea creatures -- living, surviving, fighting, and dying. Similar to like-minded documentaries such as Winged Migration and MicroCosmos, Deep Blue features footage from locations throughout the world. The great British actor Michael Gambon provides the narration, which favors involving the viewer emotionally over providing enlightening factual information on the creatures.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A magnificent look at the teeming, wildly varied life in and around the ocean.
This is a nasty, nauseating, dispiriting movie and, to repeat, whatever you do, don't take the kids -- no matter what the G rating says.
The information you find inside may not be anything more than you haven't garnered from watching Animal Planet, but it is an extremely well made and well shot piece.
Honestly: In how many movies can you see a polar bear attacking a bunch of whales?
we've been in an ocean-documentary glut of late, and Deep Blue just doesn't have much in it that we haven't seen a few times before
Unfortunately, the film tries to say too much, and as a result ends up saying nothing. Also, this G-rated film contains scenes of animal attacks that are much too intense for young audiences.
Stunning images of undersea life, ... but the footage is pieced together haphazardly, sometimes repetitively.
Deep Blue is like the oceans: stunningly beautiful and packed with shocking violence.
Deep Blue, while as gorgeously photographed as other nature documentaries, is more grisly than most.
There's certainly enough to hold one's interest during Deep Blue, but you won't learn as much as you would through a single corridor of Chicago's Shedd Aquarium.
British filmmakers Andy Byatt and Alstair Fothergill don't try to teach us much; they just ask us to look at pretty fish.
