Critic Reviews for Galapagos: The Enchanted Voyage
A few magnificent moments underwater can make it all seem worthwhile.
It's hard to resist the lumbering Galápagos tortoise, the skittering bright-orange crabs or the legions of proud black marine iguanas that sun themselves en masse on outcroppings of petrified lava.
The film is intellectually intriguing and visually exciting, but literally and figuratively only occasionally plumbs the depths of its subject.
The film is mildly informative, but things only come alive when land lizards suddenly land in your lap and when red and blue footed boobies fly over the seats.
Audience Reviews for Galapagos: The Enchanted Voyage
I busted the Galapagos a few years ago on a diving expedition. It's an awesome experience. The currents can be swift so always use caution and stay with your buddy. Wolf & Darwin Islands are the two best places to dive! We went to the Darwin Museum and saw Lonesome George before he passed away. Please support their work. I enjoyed the movie and hope you will too!
Took me a while to finish this one. Started in months ago and forgot it had a total of three parts. While this was beneficial for me because quite redundant in parts (so it helped refresh my memory of what I saw before), I think if this were viewed in one sitting it could be overly-long because of the re-iteration. I didn't care for the narration (would have liked David Attenborough). The cinematography is top-notch, and there is so much more I wanted to see. I learned so much that I didn't know before beyond the finches and tortoises that I usually associate with the islands. Did you know they have penguins there? Sea lions that eat water lizards? It just seems like such a wonderful place that I want to visit. But the end showed that 30,000 people live there now and have introduced an abundance of flora and fauna to the place, thus displacing those that have been there for eons. Makes me mad. Should stay pristine - at least somewhere should! On par with Planet Earth, Winged Migration, Microcosmos, Life in the Undergrowth, March of the Penguins, and Animals are Beautiful People for my favorite nature-oriented documentaries.
Interesting, but often carries on and on about one thing.
