There are people saying this is a no go of a film for sensitive kids. My 5 yo is VERY sensitive, but all we needed to do was pause the movie and talk about it a little and then it was fine. There is peril in the ocean for many critters and I think this movie handles it well for the younger set. We opted for this over Nemo because I knew my kids would have nightmares about the big grinning shark (sharks in Turtle Tale were a little scary but not as bad as Nemo or Reef).
To the people saying that this film is trying to indoctrinate kids about evil humans and Green Peace...remember that this movie is told in flashback from the viewpoint of a 50 year old turtle. He isn't throwing propaganda, he's simply remembering the details of his experience through the decades when many of us humans used to think nothing of dumping all manner of stuff in the ocean and other groups of us were fairly militant about protecting our natural resources. It's Sammy turtle's life experience and history through his eyes. And it's not a bad thing to show our kids the mistakes we've made with our planet and help them see te benefit of trying to keep it clean.
This is a very clean, non scary, well produced movie with wonderful graphics that are full of color and detail. The ocean and life of the turtles come to life and love conquers all! I will watch this again and again!!
