The balance of the earth's ecosystems is continually changing and no where is this more apparent than in fascinating world beneath the sea. Narrated by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, this 41-minute IMAX film features breathtaking underwater photography from the coral reefs to the cold waters of British Columbia with a focus on underwater inhabitants, their symbiotic relationships, and the ever-shifting balance between predator and prey. While viewing this DVD on even the largest home television screen can't compare with the stories high IMAX theatre experience, underwater footage including a California mantis shrimp fighting off an octopus and a wolf eel eating a sea urchin is riveting in any venue. The footage of the mysterious once-a-year spawning of the coral reef in the Gulf of Mexico can only be described as truly amazing. Enchantment with underwater beauty gives way in the end to a chilling message about man's over-fishing of the sea and his leading role in the unraveling of the sea's delicate ecosystem. (Ages 3 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

My ratings are based mainly on the QUALITY OF THE 3D, not the video content.

In addition to the title scenes 5 more out of screen effects extend an impressive 50% of the way, from the screen to the viewer. Another 20 reached 25% or more and many are in the 5 to 10% range.

EXCESS PARALLAX in a few of the scenes make it hard to mentally assemble the 3D.

Far better than Wild Ocean in every respect

*** Visually stunning sea floor & creature footage in crystal clear 3D ***

MY 3D RATING = VERY GOOD (poor, fair, good, very good, excellent)

Note: As far as the percentages go, everyone's eyes are different. What I see at 25% you may see at 15% or 35%. To fully realize how far something is out of the screen for you, pause on an effect and direct a partner with an extended finger to the tip of what you are seeing. You may be surprised.

As I write this review the price on this sucker is $37.99! Maybe that wouldn't be so bad if it was a full length movie with a DVD and digital copy however you are just getting a 3d disc and a blu-ray disc with 40 minutes of film (You are basically paying $1 for each minute!)

Aside from the price the movie is GREAT! I was lucky enough to get this movie free with my sony 3d tv and it is definitely great to show off to friends! As I said... its about 40 minutes long and includes some of the most beautiful under sea shots you'll ever see. As far as the 3D effects go, it won't disappoint you! The 3D gives you the depth effect as it should in an ocean setting. It really looks as though you can walk straight through your tv and swim with the sharks (don't try that at home). Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet do a great job narrating while Danny Elfman gives us some fun music to listen to!

Overall i give it 4 stars with the price not being an involvement. It missed the 5 star mark because there were several scenes with heavy "ghosting" particularly when a squid locks on to the camera thinking its dinner! The squid gets very close up and becomes very blurry when you have your 3d glasses on! it was enough to make me go cross eyed and have to look away from the screen.

I would recommend this to all 3D owners as well as new 3D owners who are looking to either show off to friends or experience the depth of 3D themselves!

While this film is surprisingly short and has some limitations in term of continuity, I found it utterly absorbing and watched it twice the same day. The photography is some of the most stunning marine footage I have ever seen. The filmmakers have done a superb job of capturing some of the most charismatic, sinister, and whimsical creatures that inhabit the oceans, and the information about their life cycles, while not exhaustive, was well edited to maintain interest. Highly recommended!

I bought this 3D BLU RAY so I could test the abilities of my Samsung 3D plasma TV and the Samsung 3D Blu Ray player. I am not a kid anymore. i have plenty of tech. I am easily bored. I really didn't expect what i got...

All I can say is....WOW!!!!!! This movie blew my mind. its freaky how you get sucked into the picture. The little fish swimming right by your nose. i actually had to fight the urge to hold my breath. you really feel loike u are underwater! There were times I reached out and tried to touch the jellyfish that seemed like they were inches from my face. I felt like i was a 10 year old going on a deep sea dive. This format is the most fun I have had in a long time with tech. Its like visiting another world!

I cant wait to see what they start making next. its too bad they really haven't released alot of new titles yet. this tech is supposed to only get better though. Not all 3D movies are created equal. Make sure you rad the reviews and if you can, try and watch a preview at Best Buy or whatever. This is a short film,, butI have already sat through it 3 times and will be doing it again tonight.3d is definitely the way.

This DVD features a wide variety of sea life including: jellyfish, starfish, coral life, strobing squid, sharks, sea turtles, sting rays -even a whale. My three-year old never gets tired of watching it; he loves the parts centered on the octopus the best.

From an adult perspective, I am amazed at how many different species they show (beautiful footage), and it is very informative...great for family time, educating children/students, etc. I gave it five stars because we wanted a DVD that discusses sea creatures, and that is exactly what you get.

HOWEVER, the narration was awful! We own and rent dozens of DVDs from Discovery, Animal Planet, and National Geographic, and this was the worst narration I have ever heard. I was surprised, but I guess Johnny Depp & Kate Winslet haven't had much experience with narration...although, I think the script was a big part of the problem (some lines are soooo cheesy).

Also, I think the price is way too high for a forty-minute DVD...BUT, when I think about how much my son loves Deep Sea, it is worth the money. As I said, I gave it five stars because it does deliver the best sea creatures.

imax vs 3D
I believe this is just WS. Most 3D Imax movies on dvd are not in 3D. The 3 main ones are Alien, Haunted Castle, and Elvira....
