This DVD features a wide variety of sea life including: jellyfish, starfish, coral life, strobing squid, sharks, sea turtles, sting rays -even a whale. My three-year old never gets tired of watching it; he loves the parts centered on the octopus the best.
From an adult perspective, I am amazed at how many different species they show (beautiful footage), and it is very informative...great for family time, educating children/students, etc. I gave it five stars because we wanted a DVD that discusses sea creatures, and that is exactly what you get.
HOWEVER, the narration was awful! We own and rent dozens of DVDs from Discovery, Animal Planet, and National Geographic, and this was the worst narration I have ever heard. I was surprised, but I guess Johnny Depp & Kate Winslet haven't had much experience with narration...although, I think the script was a big part of the problem (some lines are soooo cheesy).
Also, I think the price is way too high for a forty-minute DVD...BUT, when I think about how much my son loves Deep Sea, it is worth the money. As I said, I gave it five stars because it does deliver the best sea creatures.
