Alastair Fothergill's nature documentary Deep Blue consists of 90 minutes of footage of undersea creatures -- living, surviving, fighting, and dying. Similar to like-minded documentaries such as Winged Migration and MicroCosmos, Deep Blue features footage from locations throughout the world. The great British actor Michael Gambon provides the narration, which favors involving the viewer emotionally over providing enlightening factual information on the creatures. The 22 segments of the film conclude with footage of how man has affected life under the sea. This film was originally produced for the British television series The Blue Planet. According to the filmmakers, some of the creatures seen here have never been previously recorded on film. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide

Not so Deep by vuzh October 23, 2010 - 9:10 PM PDT

Not bad cinematography ruined by crappy editing and over-dramatic, stupidly floral/faux poetic script read by a drunk Pierce Brosnan. Stay away, this movie is a piece of deep blue crap. Rent something narrated by Attenborough instead.

This is repurposed footage from the TV series Blue Planet. It contains some of the best sequences, but they aren't as well presented in the TV series. Overall: Watch Blue Planet. More interesting, better details, better narration.
