Disneynature Oceans Reviews

By mixing the fake with the genuine, however well-meaning their intentions, they've shot themselves in the foot; I left the cinema feeling as though I'd been taken for a ride.

Where's SpongeBob SquarePants when you really need him?

Could the script have been less informative? Could it have been more soporifically read than Pierce Brosnan's rendition? I don't think so.

A movie so bursting at the seams with images, it ultimately lacks focus.

Oceans floods us with stunning visuals of the panoply of sea life. But without a compelling story, or a strong point of view, or mere information, we can only 'ooh' and 'aah' so much.
