Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This disc represents the best example of 3D photography available for Blu-Ray 3D at this time (17-Nov-2010). And, where one might fear that it would be undermined by insipid commentary from Jim Carrey, that fear turns out to be misplaced, with only a few brief exceptions.

Having done 3D (it should really be called "stereo") photography in the past, I can say that there are ways to do it well, and ways to do it poorly. Poor technique, and/or difficult subject matter, lead to artifacts (like distracting cases of the left image bleeding through into the right image, and vice versa - imperfect presentation technology is a factor in such cases, but stereo photographers know they face such problems, and failure to allow for them shows a lack of care) and, in extreme cases, even to difficulty in mentally assembling the 3D scene.

The stereo photography on this disc is not perfect in every case, but, overall, it is the best I've seen yet from any Blu-Ray 3D title (and I've bought all of the IMAX conversions available to date, and several of the few available films). Sit directly in front of your TV, and you can reach out and touch many of the creatures they've captured. It is a thing of beauty. (You will, for instance, probably never see a potato cod captured more perfectly.) In the rare cases where quality problems emerge it is in situations where stereo photography is just plain problematic - scenes with significant, but unpredictable, depth of field, high contrast elements, and subjects whose proximities to the camera(s) vary uncontrollably, leading to excessive parallax at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars most accurate color I've seen June 12, 2010
I am a scuba diver and I have dove all over the world including the South Pacific.

Many friends ask me what it looks like when we scuba dive. White balance is extremely difficult when shooting pictures under water, and changes constantly. You need to take a white card and rebalance the camera every few minutes. This movie, shot in the South Pacific, New Guinea, New Zealand, The Great Barrier Reef etc, is the most accurate ocean movie I've ever seen. They have somehow accurately captured the rainbow of colors we see when we dive. You will never see anything as bright and colorful as tropical fish and coral. The film crew must have a huge array of lights to shoot this.

Fish "school", move together, so nearsighted larger predator fish, sharks and such, will think they are one big fish instead of a thousand small fish and not attack them. This movie shows thousands of small fish schooling together, which is a fascinating and hypnotic process to watch.

Movie also contains a scene of the fabulous reclusive Leafy Sea Dragon one of the strangest creatures in the sea, which I have only seen here and in the Monterey Aquarium.

Yes, it's a little short. The film crew doubtless shot hundreds of hours of movie and has provided the viewer with the choicest and most interesting parts. (it's damn hard to get those fish to pose!)

It's the closest you can come to diving without getting wet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful scenery with funny commentary. October 5, 2010
I rented this movie at Blockbuster to watch on a Samsung UN55C8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED HDTV.
IMAX offers many different movies that cover a wide range of topics that are great for children and adults.
Needless to say, the quality of the movie is simply breathtaking.
The movie shows various animals and species in their natural underwater habitat that most of us simply will never get to see in our lifetimes.

Jim Carrey's narration is an added bonus to the overall entertainment value. He narrates with a relaxed yet charming voice with small jokes you and your family will be sure to enjoy.
With stunning images and vivid colors and scenery, this movie must not be missed.

The only drawback to this movie is the length at under an hour which will leave you either wanting more or simply watching it again.
I am placing an order on Amazon for my own copy after I finish writing this review.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3D Review by a 3D Connoisseur November 8, 2011
My ratings are based mainly on the QUALITY OF THE 3D, not the video content.

Like many of the IMAX films the 3D is over done, meaning you may see objects out of screen that your brain knows should be farther back. These defects will vary from person to person by the way your brain interprets the 3D and by exactly where on the screen your eyes are focused at that time. With that being said, the following amounts and distances are the minimums you should see in this film.

In Addition to the opening credits floating out to 40%; there are about 21 out of screen effects that extend 10% of the way, from the screen to the viewer. There are another 23 OOS effects between 15 & 25%. 1 to 4 effects will reach out to 50%. My favorite effect is at 21:00 minutes, a large head shot of a Potato Cod is at least half way between you and the screen. Finally, stick around for the closing credits. Some of the bubbles go out to 50% and the very last bubble almost reaches 75% before the effect is lost.

If the 3D in other IMAX films were OK for you, this one should be too.

*** Visually stunning sea floor & creature footage in crisp 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.

Does it show animals dying?
There are some scenes when an unsuspecting fish meets its demise in a surprise attack. One family member jumped each time a fish was surprised and eaten. I just remembered a scene where a jellyfish is being eaten by a turtle.

Yes. Do not like it at all. Should be discounted and disclosed. I buy from Amazon and read reviews because I don't like surprises with purchases.

3d with a DVD player?
Well, if you want it to be played in 3d then unless you make a custom DVD with the side by side or anaglyph(Red-blue, etc) movie format and use a 3d television that can manually change the 3d format , it is not possible. Bluray players are dirt cheap this days, I recommend use the original... Read More
