Directors Al Giddings and David Clark, whose previous credits include Galapagos: Beyond Darwin, return to the flora and fauna of the Galapagos Islands for this IMAX documentary. The film focuses on the work of Smithsonian-based biologist Carol Baldwin and outlines Charles Darwin's theories on natural selection. Highlights include footage of the giant Galapagos tortoise and the Galapagos iguana, which perfectly camouflages itself against the gray rock on which it suns itself. Kenneth Branagh narrates. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A few magnificent moments underwater can make it all seem worthwhile."
‑ Louise Kennedy, Boston Globe
"The film is intellectually intriguing and visually exciting, but literally and figuratively only occasionally plumbs the depths of its subject."
‑ Christine James, Boxoffice Magazine
"It may not be as exciting as other IMAX movies, but for travel and nature buffs it's a real treat."
‑ Lisa Wilton, Jam! Movies
"A film worth seeing."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The film is mildly informative, but things only come alive when land lizards suddenly land in your lap and when red and blue footed boobies fly over the seats."
‑ Herb Lash, Big Movie Zone
"As a medium for showing the study of evolution and biodiversity in this part of the world, this film can't be topped."
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"It's hard to resist the lumbering Galápagos tortoise, the skittering bright-orange crabs or the legions of proud black marine iguanas that sun themselves en masse on outcroppings of petrified lava."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"For about the rental price of a snorkle and goggles "Galapagos" brings the experience to you - and you don't even have to get wet!"
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
