A review of Diego's Moonlight Rescue by 7-year-old Holden.


The Diego movie on Nickelodeon was great. I had seen the commercial for it about 100 times during the week, so I had been looking forward to it. My mom let me stay up until 9 p.m. to watch it, which is an hour past my bedtime. Bueno!

The story is about how baby sea turtles need moonlight to find their way back to the ocean. But a comet accidentally breaks Luna the moon apart into four pieces, and it gets very dark. The baby sea turtles can't see where they're going. Diego, Diego's sister Alicia, and a sea turtle named Tuga have to help find the four pieces of the moon so it can shine again.

Diego used Spanish and English to help the animals. I like it when he speaks Spanish because my babysitter used to speak Spanish to me. To find Luna's pieces, they have to go through an underwater city and a jellyfish cove. That was so awesome. I liked it when the Bobo Brothers made big waves so the pieces of the moon flew away. Click and Rescue Pack, Diego's friends, also helped in the adventure.

I liked it when Diego asked questions during the movie. My 4-year-old sister and I both answered them. When Diego said "Louder!" my sister yelled the answers, but I just said them louder in my mind.

My favorite part of the movie was when the orcas were chasing the sea turtle. That part was exciting. It was also fun when Diego had to solve some riddles to get into the underwater city. I like riddles.

My sister thought it was a little scary when the turtles couldn't find their way home, but it didn't scare me. She also kept looking for Dora, but Dora wasn't in this movie.

Diego's Moonlight Rescue is out on DVD, and I think other kids my age or younger would like it as much as I did.
