Time Out

The characters are thin, the dialogue is bland and the animation is plasticky, though the 3D effects are sometimes interesting in a lurid, sub-Pixar fashion.

Here, director and co-writer Ben Stassen shows as much contempt for characterisation as he did with his previous feeble effort, the offensively banal insect adventure Fly Me to the Moon.

Originality isn't the film's strong suit and Sammy's adventures never come close to the escapades of Nemo, but the 3D certainly earns some points with the ocean brought to dazzling, spectacular, colourful life.

The National

far too reminiscent of films that have gone before it and suffers from being overly didactic about its environmental themes.

You can't fault the film's message - it just doesn't know where to take it other than just pointing it out.

A Belgian production that can boast some accomplished Finding Nemo-style underwater visuals.

Falls several sea miles of open water behind Pixar's Finding Nemo.

It seems guaranteed to infuriate anyone over seven.

Turtly disappointing, turtly sanctimonious in its eco message, and turtly derived from Finding Nemo.
