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.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
A feature-film companion to the BBC’s groundbreaking Blue Planet series, Deep Blue surveys the magnificent, glorious, and otherworldly creatures that live in the oceans. And while it lacks the dramatic arc that made its obvious commercial inspiration, March of the Penguins, so compelling, the accumulated footage is nonetheless extraordinary. Deep Blue reminds viewers that more people have traveled into space than to the ocean floor, underscoring the unique appeal of its visuals. Pierce Brosnan’s narration feels languid, perhaps due to the script itself (“This is a world of constant jeopardy, an endless cycle of death and renewal”). George Felton’s score is quite good, though: by turns majestic, playful, and eerie, it takes its cues from the various species of sharks, whales, dolphins, and polar bears, as well as the curiosities that inhabit the ocean’s farthest depths. While Deep Blue earned a G rating, some sequences -- such as an orca repeatedly flipping its just-killed lunch, a sea lion, into the air -- might disturb some viewers. One other note: If the adorable flightless birds on the package raise hopes for more penguins on the march, you may be disappointed: Emperor penguins swim in at the 43-minute mark and are gone by minute 47. However, Shark Week fans and those captivated by nature documentaries in general will find much that is mesmerizing in Deep Blue.
