Blu-ray Review: Planet Ocean
Rated: Not Rated
Street Date: April 9, 2013
Available On: DVD and Blu-ray
The Film: “Planet Ocean” is a call-to-action documentary narrated by Josh Duhamel. The film looks at various wonders of the ocean and how these areas are in grave danger if we don’t act quickly to counteract the decades of damage our industrial society has caused.
The Extras: “In the Skies Above Rio,” “Underwater” and “Shanghai” featurettes.
Recommendation: Having recently watched “The Blue Planet: Seas of Life” as well as numerous other nature documentaries I found that “Planet Ocean” was a bit too preachy to enjoy. Even though I agree with its message a more subtle approach would have been greatly appreciated. Still, there are some breathtaking moments when the sermon gives way to the natural wonder of nature.
