DVD Review: DEEP

DEEP was directed by Julio Soto Gúrpide an features the voices of Justin Felbinger (Deep), Stephen Ezra Hughes (Evo), Lindsey Alena (Alice), Elisabeth Catherine Gray (Maura), Anna Vocino (Norma), and Dwight Schultz (Kraken).

When a playful octopus named Deep gets his undersea fish colony in trouble, the tribe’s stern leader Kraken orders Deep to go find help. Joined by his splashy BFFs—a sassy shrimp and a silly anglerfish—Deep takes an epic, colorful journey through submerged cities and sunken ships, where they meet outrageous creatures that help the trio on its way. Throughout the adventure, Deep and his buddies laugh, sing, and bond with one another, proving that friendship can be a very “deep” subject.

Deep is an adventurous young octopus who accidentally puts his underwater home in jeopardy and is sent out on a mission in search of the “City of Men” to look some much needed help. Deep and a few of his friends meet all kinds of interesting characters (some good and some bad) during their adventure. They ultimately find this mysterious sunken city but it’s not exactly what they thought it was going to be. Nevertheless, they do end up getting some much needed help they’ve been searching for to assist them in saving their home and it comes in the form of new friends  that they’ve made on their exciting journey.

The packaging comes with a slipcover/o-card. The front features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes more artwork, movie details and specs. The DVD disc has a light grey finish and features the movie logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, Deep was a fun animated adventure that also comes with an important message – take care of your home or in this case our amazing planet we live on. The story was simple and these quirky characters were all fun to follow. I really did like the animation style that brought this underwater world and its residents to life. The movie has a little bit of everything to offer including some action and adventure, a little mischief, lots of comedy, there’s an educational element to the story, plus some singing and dancing – or in this case singing and swimming. This family friendly animated adventure swims onto DVD on October 10th and is a recommended watch, especially for the kiddos out there. It’s no Finding Nemo or Dory but it’s still a fun watch for the younger audience.
