A Turtle's Tale 2: Sammy's Escape from Paradise 3D

 (2012)

A Turtle's Tale 2: Sammy's Escape from Paradise 3D Blu-ray despite great video and superb audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

Animated sequel following aging turtle Sammy as he is swept away on an adventure to Dubai. When Sammy and his lifelong friend Ray are caught by poachers they find themselves destined to become part of an aquarium display in Dubai. As the duo plan an escape, along with their new acquaintances which include a blob fish, a lobster, an octopus and a group of penguins, their young grandchildren Ricky and Ella go off on an adventure of their own in an effort to save their grandpas.

A Turtle's Tale 2: Sammy's Escape from Paradise 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Turtle's Tale 2: Sammy's Escape from Paradise is presented on Blu-ray with AVC (2D) and MVC (3D) encoded 1080p transfers in 1.78:1. This follow up has decent sharpness and clarity, but it's a good deal blander than the original film. Character designs, especially with regard to Sammy and Ray, are often featureless. Some of the supporting characters fare better, especially the crazy lobster and gangster seahorse, as well as a weird little blowfish. The baby turtles suffer from being little other than blobs with eyes. As with the original film, there are some bright and bold colors here, but even those are less well exploited than in the first outing. Some of the aquarium settings feature some nice touches, from coral reefs to scary "jail bars".

The 3D presentation here is kind of middling. Some of the more subtle effects are actually the most winning, as in the opening sequence when the older turtles are trying to get the hatchlings to the ocean. One of the grandmothers is covered in lotus flower petals, and as she moves, some of those fly up in the air and waft toward the viewer rather convincingly. Since so much of this film ultimately takes place underwater, there simply isn't that much opportunity to really exploit depth of field. What the means is dimensionality is therefore established with foreground objects like seaweed or even flippers of the turtles which poke out into the foreground.


A Turtle's Tale 2: Sammy's Escape from Paradise 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

A Turtle's Tale 2: Sammy's Escape from Paradise features lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mixes in both English and Spanish (I personally have a feeling that at least some of the crew, while ostensibly Belgian, tended to match the lip movements of the characters more toward Spanish than English, as toggling between the two languages shows that the Spanish language track matches the animation much more completely). Both of these tracks offer a fair amount of immersion (no pun intended), with good surround activity that's especially fulsome in the film's ubiquitous use of source cues (as with the first film, the production must have spent some considerable dough on licensing a number of well known hits by artists like Jimi Hendrix). The film's cover touts the music of Darius Rucker, and while I'm the last to denigrate the erstwhile Hootie, his onetime aggregation The Blowfish may be about the only reason his music was ported over to this release. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is rather wide.
