2020 ***1/2 77 mins.
I remember seeing the DisneyNature documentary Born in China around Earth Day 2017. When I saw that, I saw a trailer for the next DisneyNature documentary, Dolphins, to be released Earth Day 2018. Well, Earth Day 2018 came and went...no Dolphins. Fast forward two years, the Disney+ streaming service launches, and Dolphin Reef is a part of it. A variation on the Dolphins documentary (titled Blue internationally), Dolphin Reef is narrated by Natalie Portman and is another by-the-numbers affair by DisneyNature. Plenty of gorgeous cinematography and creatures hampered by a childish "plot" and needless jokes and potty humor.
