Family Movie Review: Mysteries of the Unseen World (NR)

MysteriesoftheUnseenWorld ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: NR          Length: 40 minutes

Age Appropriate For: 8+. Nothing questionable, really. This is a documentary about “unseen” organisms and phenomena around us, so there are a lot of scientific images here. Some are a bit gross—a mice decaying, a group of strawberries being overrun by mold, a close-up of a flea—but they’re more fascinating than off-putting.

A combination of exquisitely detailed images and well-written narration, ‘Mysteries of the Unseen World’ is an unforgettable documentary from National Geographic. For parents and children alike, the film offers unparalleled wonders.

By Roxana Hadadi

The deep blue color of a butterfly’s wing. A tendril of a vine creeping up a tree trunk toward sunlight. The explosion of popcorn kernels, one by one, in heated oil. The inside of a caterpillar’s mouth. Things we could never with our naked eye, but that are unforgettable once we glimpse them, are the crux of the fantastically well-done National Geographic documentary “Mysteries of the Unseen World.”
