Oceans-2010, directed by Jaques Perrin, narrated by Pierce Brosnan, starring fish, whales, turtles, and octopuses
He says- Eye-popping survey of life underwater around the world, capturing amazing sights and even sounds. The result of four years of filming using state-of-the-art camerawork, this family-friendly documentary shows rare species, migratory rituals, and much, much more. Like Earth, this is an American adaptation of a 2009 French documentary by the Disney company, edited from 102 minutes, with new narration and a closing song sung by Joe Jonas. 3 stars.
I say- I could not believe that this as the movie that spun off Oceans 11, 12, and 13. There was no George Clooney or Brad Pitt anywhere in sight. As far as nature documentaries go, this was good, but I feel like I've seen this sort of thing on PBS before. Great background viewing for reading or eating. 2 stars.
