“Most memorable are the sequences where we follow sea life up close in ways rarely seen before, surveying the activity on a section of coral reef as if it were a bustling city street viewed from ground level. The abundance of color and different species is truly daunting, and the film allows us to grasp the intelligence of mollusks and other invertebrates struggling to survive in a crowded terrain.” –Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
