I watched this movie as a Blue-Ray DVD in 3D on television. So far I thought that a movie could not be that bad that stunning 3D effects wouldn't make it fun to watch anyway. At least this was my experience until Sammy's adventures. Although the 3D effects were partly impressive, especially the underwater scenes, it was almost impossible to watch the movie until the end. There are two reasons.
First I had to fight massive tiredness. Already after about 5 minutes you feel that this movie will probably become boring. And this feeling is right, it's one of the most boring movies I have ever seen. This is because there is no coherent plot, the characters are dull and you just don't care about what happens to them.
More important is the movie's intention which is so flat, not to say primitive that you get annoyed quickly. In short term: humans are bad. They put oil in the water motiveless, cut trees, kill whales, hunt fishes, pollute the environment, make global warming. There is no good about them, with two exceptions: Greenpeace is good and hippies are good. The rest is just a pain in the ass for the world. It is funny to see that the smoke coming out of the pipe of the Greenpeace boat is a thin light gray cloud, while the other boats spit out massive black clouds. This example gives an impression of the way the movie tries to manipulate, especially the targeted audience which are kids. So it is just a long sequence of cruelties the humans do to the nature without connection and without traceable motivation.
Probably the writer/producer share a hardcore view of the world where humans are just an error of nature disrupting the system. In this case they could do something better for the environment by saving the electric energy which was dissipated making this movie.
