    Synopsis


    Under the Sea 3D
    Experience up-close encounters with some of the most remarkable marine life ever captured on film while examining the impact of global climate change on the ocean wilderness as award-winning director/cinematographer Howard Hall (Into the Deep, Deep Sea 3D) travels from South Australia to the Indo-Pacific to teach viewers the importance of keeping our oceans clean for future generations. Just how great of an effect does global warming have on marine wildlife, and what can be done to ensure the future well-being of our planet? As the filmmakers reveal the delicacy of our fragile ecosystem, viewers are allowed the unique opportunity to see what we risk losing should we fail to address the issue of global climate change sooner rather than later. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      BEST example of 3D to date

      Posted
      KCKid007

      Its hard to rate "acting" and "DVD extras" on a documentary. Not sure why they are on there. But those aside this being what it is, A 47 minute demo of what 3D can be like, Its great. This has THE best 3D moment on it I have ever seen on a 3D home screen. About half way through, there is a potato cod swiming right out in front of you that you could reach out and touch. Its dang near worth the 35 bucks right there. Its definately the one scene that you want to show people when they come over so see your 3D setup. If you want to own the best 3D scene to date on a home theater, then this is the dics for you. Aside from that , its a good documentary on creatures that live in the ocean, mainly the coral reefs, and how the changes in the earth and global worming can be endangering these life forms. But mark my words. The cod is worth the price of admission.

      If you have a 3D TV this bluray is a must-have for your 3D collection. That being said, you may not watch it more than once or maybe twice because the documentary is just not that interesting. I was hoping they would cover more types of fish but they only talk about a few different kinds of fish the whole time. There is no question the main reason to own this bluray is for the quality of the 3D which is excellent but I wish it was a little longer and more interesting. Jim Carrey narrated this and he was just ok...not as funny or memorable as you would expect from him. Overall I recommend it mostly for the high quality 3D presentation. You'll also learn a thing or two about the few fish they talk about.

      If you get this at a decent price, $15.00ish, it is worth a look. Find it on sale, don't pay the full price I've seen of up to $35.00! Amazing views of fish seemingly coming right off the screen, coral reefs, and underwater scenery in general. 'Ol Jim leaves the comedy behind, but comes across as a little contrite in his narration. Great show off video for your 3D system, but I wish they had left a little of the extra environmentalism out (and I'm an environmentalist!). The world's depressing enough, give me a little respite in a short film for the kids to enjoy!

      Stunning 3D DVD

      Posted

      This 3D documantary is a showcase for 3D home systems. The sea creatures in the film felt like swimming in my living room. The best 3D I have ever seen on a 3D home system and the images of the sea life was beyond descibing. The narration was just ok but I was so blown out by the 3D images, that I hardly noticed it. I will have to watch again and this time pay more attention to the narration.

      NOT A 3D MOVIE

      Posted
      Rajib1080

      I do not know what in the world made them to call it an "IMAX" movie. This is completely a 2D movie. Of course, there are beautiful scenes under the water. But, if you are looking for any movie like "Avater" (The Theatre version) or "Monsters Vs Aliens", this is not the one. Although I have opened the box, I will still try to return and get my money back.

      First let me say that this is a documentary so there is no plot nor acting to rate. That being said it is an intresting well done documentary. Where it really shines though is in the 3D quality. There is one sceen where a potato cod seems to swim out of the screen & into the room with you (much like a holigram). This is the BD I use to show off my 3D system.

      I thought this would be the greatest movie in 3D. I wasn't disappointed, but there were some bad things about the 3D. During some parts of the movie the edges of the screen, in 3D, were very out of focus. It makes your eyes hurt if you look in the corners during this movie. Otherwise, it's very awesome seeing the fish in acceptional 3D. My favorite part is when you see the sea snakes in 3D. Incredible!

      Underwater Blu Ray IMAX 3D really awesome

      My new Samsung 55" and Marantz surround really are fun with this 3D sound and super-depth effects. The sword on the sword fish seems to jump halfway across the living room and the depth of the underwater background seems to fade off into the room behind the TV! You can go back to Avatar and Thor CG when you're done, but the real-life IMAX really pushes your system to the limit.
