Part adventure, part scientific expedition, part personal quest, and part fantastic voyage, this unprecedented non-fiction film takes audiences on a journey with marine biologist Dr. Carole Baldwin, from the Smithsonian Institutions's Museum of Natural History, on her first trips to the famed Galapagos Islands.

47 shots of a female biologist's tan legs do not make a movie.
I was angry at renting this movie and then watching from a distance in the lab as the female biologist picked up and handled the specimens gathered from 3,000 feet below the surface of the ocean. She looks into the glass basins containing specimens and laughs as though they're funny but she makes no attempt to tell us what they are, and the camera makes no attempt to let us look at them.
The cameraman was obviously taken with the lovely legs of the female biologist, but some of us would have enjoyed a couple of close-ups of the many many creatures the submersible suctioned up from the ocean floor.
Some good tortoise shots and a good explanation of how cactus trees evolved to be tall, but this movie wasted a lot of potential. Unless you're a leg man, of course.
