Movie Reviews

Not for young, young kids unless you skip the begining
SciFi lover | DC Metro Area | 03/30/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The was the first film which made my 2 year-old cry. At the begining of the film you meet the parents in the sludge of Boston, talking about moving to the reef. Then the net comes and gets all of them, mother, father, and child. The child escapes but the mother and father are dragged away in the net leaving the child crying "mom, dad..." and then he is sad for for a while while traveling to the reef with a bunch of porpoises. Seeing the parents carried off was too visual with crying out over and over, and didn't have to be part of the film at all. How about the parent decide to move and they all go there? It wouldn't have changed the rest off the movie at all. My 12 year-old, husband, and I didn't like that they had to put this strife in and it, and in a really upsetting way. It didn't seem to fit with the rest of the film other than traveling with the porpoises but they all could have traveled with the porpoises. Later having it said that, your parents are sushi now kid, didn't help with me liking this film. Luckily this is way over most kids heads

This was not done as well as "Shark Tale" animation wise or story wise. It cannot even be compared to "Finding Nemo". The story after the parents demise was OK, and just that. Predictable but children may like it. Parent won't."

"I mpurchased this video for my grandkids ages 8 mon to 3 years. They watch the movie over and over. A great buy."

"Predictable, not really, there is still a lot of suspense. This movie is geared for children, yet it captivated me, a 40 year old. I liked it so much that I actually bought it, and I buy very few movies. This movie has some absolutely beautiful graphics and a very heart warming plot.
My 11 year old absolutely loved it. She saw it several month ago and everytime we run across it in the rental store she still asks to rent it again. I can only recommend this cd. It is good solid childrens entertainment."
Reef was not even worth the Grief !

"This was one of the worst cartoons I have ever seen. It was so close to Barney in annoyance that I wanted to drag it behind my car on fire. I cannot imagine how this won a award with the mix of FINDING NEMO and NINJA TURTLES. I am sure that the grief is not worth the time or money!"
