"Oh dear a truly awful film. It is long, slow and dull. Apart from the whale at night scene the 3D really doesn't add much if anything to the film.
Where to start? The plot is dull and never really explains the finding God and redemption theme. There are a number of sub plots like the Love of his life girl left behind that aren't really developed and the meerkat island feels like something the Beatles would have come up with after a bad LSD trip.
Sorry, some people might find this enlightening but I found it really rather dull. Maybe like the Julia Roberts "Eat, Pray, Love" disaster flick some books are best left unfilmed.
Two stars for me and a poor two at that,"
