Great cinematography

Loved the close up shots of the animals, however I was expecting it to be more "educational". I was hoping to see rare and unusual creatures of the deep , things we hadn't seen before - and for the narration to give more in-depth information. A lot of the animals presented were more run of the mill - dolphin, Great White, that kind of thing. All in all it was a relaxing hour plus of beautiful underwater shots. Just not the educatonal experience I ws hoping for!

Awesome visuals, but overall lacking..

The cinematography in Oceans is amazing. There is no denying that. Their choice of Pierce Brosnan as the narrator, however, was a mistake. It almost seems as though he is trying to lull you to sleep at some points. The music is also slow and somewhat dreary at times. As this is a nature film, I let these things go, and definitely enjoyed the movie. My biggest let-down was the lack of actual information provided about the species depicted on screen. I went into the theater expecting to get some in depth information about some species I had never seen before. There wasn't really a lot of educational information provided for many of the animals shown. There were a few crabs and shrimp that received a good bit of attention, which were interesting. I was just hoping for a bit more bang for my buck. I would still recommend this movie to any fan of nature films and programs. Just don't go in expecting anything as informative as shows like Planet Earth or Life. Enjoy!

This was a good film. It really tells a good story about what most people dont know about our oceans. Had beautiful images below the surface. Wonderful storys about some interesting creatures and how they live. Its not a graphic movie at all. Its just a wonderful film you can take the whole family to see.
