The pictures of the ocean floor are great. There are plants, fish, microbes, giant squid, giant tubeworms, and a lot of unidentifiable stuff down there. I was pleased to see the tubeworms, as I have always had trouble envisioning them from descriptions. An entire sun-less ecosystem powered by superheated, toxic fluid emitted from hydrothermal vents is intriguing stuff. But the narration is bad. The enthusiasm of the explorers comes across, but very little else does. They're excited. Very excited. They proclaim everything to be "incredible" with no explanation of why. But they aren't informative. The narrators are scientists of various descriptions, but not experienced deep sea explorers. They seem to just be along for the ride. They're not authorities on the subject by any means. So their narration is ebullient but superficial.Read more ›
My only wish was that there were more details provided about the fantastic (real!) creatures in this film... it's a pure visual treat, and a fantastic glimpse at an amazing world, but perhaps a little shorter on substance that I would have wished. However, there's a companion book I just ordered that I think will help answer questions where this movie leaves off.
All in all, a MUST SEE, especially while it's still on the big IMAX screen!
This film simply forgets what it is supposed to be about on several occasions.Read more ›
I sat down and before I knew it the movie was over. It was so captivating and well done that the time flew by.
The renditions of exploring the moons of Jupiter were the best I have seen, and if more work like this were to be released, NASA would have an easier time securing their funding.
Seeing the superheated vents so deep in the ocean and the life surrounding them was amazing. To see life that exists without photosynthesis makes me believe that being close to a star has less to do with life than we have been willing to admit.

Very educational. More documentary than just viewing the beauty of the depths of the sea. I was not so much interested in the scientific explanations. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Cannot rate
This was really interesting to watch. It showed a part of the world that few of us ever get to see. The only thing I think that would have made this better was more footage! Read morePublished 20 months ago by L G
