3D quality - so-so ...in some parts they actually super-imposed the sea-turtle against a background video of other sea animals. I highly doubt this film was originally shot in 3D. Some scenes look very good, but most scenes look artificial and not so well done.
the story - its a narrative story, following a sea-turtle in some journey across the oceans. The voice is irritating, high-pitched and childish.
This blu-ray is more suited to a young child , but it also tries to educate at the same time.
the sound track - odd music , done by the Bulgarian national orchestra. weird.
I would avoid this blu-ray at all costs, unless you have a child between the ages of 6-10 , who is fascinated with undersea life....and even buy it on sale.

If you want a fabulous tour of the top underwater sights available to the recreational diver with terrific commentary and very amusing sound effects (extra kudos to the foley artist for creating sounds that you don't really hear under water). It was beautiful, thrilling and showed some of the awe and majesty of the oceanic realm.
If you just got a 3-D TV and want to take it out for a spin, you can't do better than this movie.
The movie is fairly short. Only 41 minutes. Good for kids and really anyone looking for a 3D movie. Nothing ground breaking as far as photography or new scientific information.
Also, there was some question about the narrator. It is narrated by the Sea Turtle.
Unlike other underwater/animal documentary, this one doesn't show the hostile / predatory acts until seeing sharks in action toward the end.
The 2D movie doesn't seem as sharp, but 3D is top-notch. It's better than all other underwater 3D documentaries that I own (including IMAX Deep Sea 3D). There are good balance of in-screen and out-of-screen (OOS) objects. Many of the OOS are showing the "table" reef platforms. A few OOS involving dolphins looking into the screen directly at you with it's nose sticking out!
If you're wondering which movie/documentary to get, i'd say either Hubble or Deep Sea. If you're gonna pay the 26 or 27 $ for this one, just go all out and get the actual imax ones. Although i really liked tahiti and wild ocean.
The only 3d documentary i don't want is the grand canyon. i saw the first 5 minutes and it is really preachy, with Robert Redford almost getting mad at you for stuff we kinda have no control over.
Ocean Wonderland has a little bit of conservation preaching, but nothing that makes me not want to watch it again. I liked it a lot and would recommend it. I just recommend the actual imax films a little more.
