Storyline

A tribute to the ocean, "Oceans 3D" takes viewers on a voyage through, among others, Californian kelp forests, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and Roca Partida Island off the coast of Mexico, which is home to thousands of sharks. Audiences will witness some of the most spectacular and unforgettable scenes of life beneath the waves ever captured in 3D: the manta ray's enchanting ballet; the noble procession of hammerhead sharks; the lion fish's relentless hunt; a group of young dolphins playing algae-football; the astonishing beauty of the Spanish dancer sea slug; and a unique encounter with the largest cetaceans on the planet.

Best Animal Documentary since Winged Migration
24 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The makers of this film clearly understood the message of Winged Migration and the penguin film that followed it. People like in depth films from the perspective of animals.

So, rather than make yet another boring, copycat penguin film, they followed the curious life of a pregnant sea turtle as it goes on a unique type of migration through the ocean, which includes a different perspective on some of the animal villains of the penguin films.

Visually, the film work is truly impressive and sometimes so vivid and colorful you wonder if you're looking at a cartoon instead of reality. The narration is also a welcome change from the authoritarian, voice of god trying to add more meaning than needed.
