I showed it to my students and they loved it.

Contrary to many of the current films that examine nature in detail, which at times may be heavy for younger minds, "Oceans" is easy to follow and understand.

Some of the locations filmed at are very remote but with great diving quality.

Philippe Cousteau, grandson of the beloved Jacques Cousteau, hosts this wonderful series. Each episode explores an aspect of a particular sea or ocean, focusing on wildlife, but also on archaeology and environmental protection. The shows have a good balance of commentary and interviews with the scientists as well as images of natural beauty. I just wish it were in blu-ray.

I love nature videos, and DisneyNature produces some of the best I've ever seen.

The DisneyNature series has been improving each year since it's debut. At first the movies were visually stunning, but lacked an intriguing plot with beginning, middle, and end. Oceans falls in between this transition, it does not contain the 'get lost in the story' plot that African Cats and Chimpanzee champion. It's narration is also too simplistic. It's perfect for a young child, but an adult will be bored with the narration. This is another aspect the DisneyNature movies have since remedied.

Unfortunately the regular Amazon Instant Video version does NOT do this movie justice. If you are expecting HD quality, what you'll get is worse than DVD. In some scenes particularly with a LOT of moving things (i.e. a large school of fish moving fast) the compression Amazon adds to their video becomes unacceptably blocky.

If you want to see this movie in it's full glory, (the glory it deserves) purchase the blu-ray edition, rent the HD version here (if available) - OR - wait for amazon to sell a true HD experience.

** The movie itself deserves 5 stars absolutely. The missing star is for the drastic visual distortions from Amazon's video compression.

Nature has never been captured in its entire splendor as in present times. The technology used today in filming life is just amazing, and it is truly a pleasure to watch nature-related movies. The Disney Studios did not stay behind these advances, and developed the awesome DisneyNature series of documentaries. Not too long ago, they released the delightful "Earth," and now they successfully return with "Oceans," an equally magnificent documentary, this time taking a look at our water world.

Contrary to many of the current films that examine nature in detail, which at times may be heavy for younger minds, "Oceans" is easy to follow and understand. The images do the work and send the message. The cameras take us to almost every corner of the planet, and we watch the incredible array of inhabitants of the sea, all in their very particular environment. There are the iguanas from the Galápagos Islands, horseshoe crabs, white sharks, polar bears, assorted fishes from tropical and temperate waters (including the famous clown fish, from Disney Movies), different species of whales, sea urchins, sea lions, Mantis shrimps, dugongs, eels, turtles, birds - you name it, is here. Of course, there are also some interactions shown, such as birds preying on recently hatched turtles on the way to the sea, Blue whales feeding on krill, White sharks hunting sea lions, and more. Finally, the filmmakers make the connection between the fragility of the oceans and man's appetite for destruction, via pollution and over-fishing, concluding that "human indifference is the oceans' greatest threat.

This is a very good series (Both visually and in narration). Not sure what all of the negative comments are about. In my opinion, this series brings out the inner explorer in many of us and also presents a soft assessment of the state of our oceans. It's not too esoteric in it's science and not at all boring to look at either. I really appreciated the work done in capturing the video; all of it very pleasing to eye. The fact that they were using full face masks and communicating their thoughts during the dives was pretty neat. So we weren't just hearing bubbles and music playing constantly. Who couldn't appreciate these awesome people for radiating their inner joy of the ocean and it's inhabitants. The crew is obviously appreciative of the vast frontier we've yet to truly discover. Wish I could join them. As a diver who also appreciates this type of exploration, adventure and preservation effort, this video is such a fantastic teaser; reminding me that I've been out of the water for far too long.

This documentary is full of color and oceanic life (including species one typically does not see). I thoroughly enjoyed this piece. It is informative and enjoyable to observe the behaviors of life. I had a smile on my face the entire time. I was simply whisked away in an underwater adventure. The footage that has been captured here is simply amazing. I really got the sense of the power of the ocean and all of its little critters up close and personal. You get to see their eyes, beauty, and personalities almost like they have no idea that you are watching. You will even see some of the divers interacting with sharks in plain open water. You may just have a change in perspective after seeing this lovely and touching film. I highly recommend. Enjoy~
