Blending revealing contemporary interviews with Watson, archival clips of Sea Shepherd's dramatic encounters, and spectacular underwater nature footage, award-winning documentarian Lesley Chilcott (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for "Superman") paints a fascinating portrait of a man willing to put his own life and liberty at risk in a relentless quest to protect the oceans and the marine life within.

The movie can be frustratingly deferential toward Watson, but it is never less than urgent.

"Watson" blends [a] terrifying message with glimmers of hope and triumph, and this riveting documentary should be required viewing for all.

Seeing the majesty of these creatures and their habitat up close makes for a flustering incongruity with the footage that Watson and his crew have captured of their despoiling.

Watson is a vital showcase of the power a person can have to affect change and how far reaching that change can be to others.

...a lot of the footage is frankly disturbing and after so much of it, it can be easy to forget that much of what Watson has done throughout his career is illegal.
