A Turtle’s Tale – Sammy’s Adventure (Giveaway)

Born on a Baja, California beach in 1959, new hatchling Sammy must do what his fellow newborn sea turtles are doing: race across the beach to the ocean before a seagull or crab captures them. Thus begins Sammy’s incredible fifty-year ocean journey. Along the way he meets his best friend, a fellow turtle named Ray, and overcomes obstacles both natural and man-made while trying to fulfill his dream of travelling around the world. Throughout his travels, Sammy never forgets about Shelly – the turtle he saved on his first day and loves passionately from afar. Based on the actual course of a sea turtle’s life, this story of one creature’s breathtaking journey is a thrilling voyage the whole family will enjoy.

With Earth Day coming up, this was the perfect way to share an important message about the fragile world around us. We followed the life of Sammy the Turtle as he made his way around the world. From the very beginning as we watched the baby turtles cross the sand and go into the ocean until they returned to their birth place 50 years later, the kids were truly hooked! So much so that I barely heard a peep from them throughout this 88 minute film.

One of the things we really enjoyed were the bright and crisp animation of the underwater world.  In fact, a lot of the scenes reminded us of Finding Nemo – colorful coral reefs, beautiful fish, swaying plant life. And even though it was a cartoon the scenes gave the kids a feel of what it’s like under the sea.

The characters were adorable and you couldn’t help but root for Sammy to realize his dream of seeing the world.

However, the best part about this movie is the important message that humans need to be more careful when dealing with the environment. There are various scenes where the kids saw how careless acts can affect sealife. In one instance, a ship get grounded and a massive oil spill leaves Sammy’s world covered in the sticky goo. Another scene shows a plastic bag getting stuck on Sammy’s head. There’s also whalers who nearly hit Sammy with a harpoon. This was all done in a way that the kids could understand the urgency yet find it interesting at the same time.

Sammy’s Adventure was one of the best movies we’ve seen in a long time and the kids are already asking if they can watch it again tomorrow. It’s a great addition to our family movie library.
