Critic Reviews for Oceans (Disneynature's Oceans)
Visually [it's] quite seductive.
Oh, it's amazing.
This monumental documentary gets intimate enough to hear a crab sneeze.
There are life-and-death dramas, moments of playfulness and tenderness, which create an ever-increasing sense of wonder.
Horseshoe crabs scuttle like possessed Nazi helmets and a school of fish morphs from dreidel to disco ball, as if choreographed by Busby Berkeley.
Audience Reviews for Oceans (Disneynature's Oceans)
This documentary about our oceans and the animals and wonders that inhabit it is absolutely stunning. Some images seem so unreal and unseen that you wonder if you are watching a special effect. But you aren't. The film-makers must have had thousands of hours of footage and picked the highlights. They leave you speechless and in awe of the beauty of nature. The narration returns irregularly but remains in the background for the most part, thankfully. In the end, the film does get a tad preachy when it comes to making its point of preserving this Earth. It's sad enough that one has to remind anyone that these oceans are worth protecting, but one wouldn't have to add it to such a film. That doesn't take anything away from the power of these unforgettable images, though.
I had high expectations for Oceans and they weren't met. After about 10 minutes I thought the movie was just starting off slow showing some images and then would dive deeper into some issues or facts. 20 minutes later I could see that this would never happen. Visually the movie is very good, with great footage of different species of marine life. However there is nothing more. They might as well not even have a narrator. Nothing he's telling us matters and sometimes doesn't even correspond to what we are watching on the screen. Honestly if this movie didn't have a narrator, I probably would give it three stars. But if it would have had better writing and addressed some actual interesting points I probably would be inclined to give it five stars as the footage is just that amazing. Really disappointing documentary.
An ecological drama/documentary, filmed throughout the globe. Part thriller, part meditation on the vanishing wonders of the sub-aquatic world. Amazing! I loved this documentary. I saw some things I had never seen before. I was impress on how many different ways and shapes God has created these animals that live in the ocean. So many things relate to us and our directly affected by what we do that makes us think if we do enough to contribute. Highly recomended, watch it with your kids, make them learn while there young. Winged Migration co-directors Jacques Cluzaud and Jacques Perrin re-team for this documentary produced for Walt Disney Studios' Disneynature banner and exploring the many mysteries of our planet's oceans. Almost three-quarters of the earth's surface is covered by oceans, yet strangely we seem to know more about deep space than the world of the sea. There's no question that the ocean has played a crucial role in the history and sustenance of humankind, but what secrets does the underwater world hold? Follow filmmakers Cluzaud and Perrin beneath the ocean waves as they seek out the answer to this and explore the many dangers and mysteries of the deep.
