The film’s rigorous commitment to probing the undersea kingdom’s oddities separates it from the usual tepid Discovery Channel fare, and those looking for marine exotica and savagery will thrill to a sea slug that shimmies like a flamenco dancer and an orgiastic feeding frenzy involving dolphins, sharks and a school of sardines.

What are critics saying?
Perfect for families and exquisitely shot, this entry from the Disneynature division is even better and fresher than last year's "Earth."
An evolutionary leap forward, a visually exquisite film that doesn't ignore the truths of pollution and predatory survival.
Narrated by Pierce Brosnan, Oceans is simply amazing at times, a truly remarkable and extraordinary journey under the sea that takes us places we have never been before.
The wow factor alone makes Oceans a great Earth Day/Earth Week at the movies.
The music is symphonic, the cinematography spectacular, the narration — ay, there's the rub. In Oceans, the latest Disney nature documentary, the voice-over almost manages to turn the majestic into the mundane. Almost.
Unlike in “Winged Migration,’’ the majestic imagery fails to tell a story or advance a message.
