Editorial Reviews

Marine biologists have long been fascinated with predators of the sea. From the majestic great white shark to the damsel fish, one of the smallest creatures in the ocean but also one of the fiercest, they are all revealed in Killers of the Deep, a jaw-dropping 3-disc exploration of underwater predators and their prey. Explore creatures that come out at night, camouflage amongst marine animals, and the methods some use to protect themselves in the jungle that is the ocean. Follow the movements of sharks, by far the sea’s most fearsome creatures and see shark attacks and near misses like never before. The ocean has never been so fierce!

Format: DVD
Not sure if i have the correct dvd since amazon doesn't have a pic of this up, but i bought a KILLERS OF THE DEEP 3-disc set from Madacy Home Video that runs about 6hrs. It came in a nice tin case with a fierce-looking shark on the cover(the dvd's are encased in a foldout book). I bought it on sight but didn't know anything about it other than the fact it was cheap(got it for $10 at the bullseye store so amazon's price is comparable) and about predators of the sea.

It has 12 epsiodes(and 3 bonus episodes) from some show from the 80's/The Last Frontier(?) revolving around their leader John Stoneman and the Foundation for Ocean Research. I thought it was an Australian or UK show, but there's a prominent Canadian flag on the boat. Anyway, pros and cons:

pros:
lots of content. 12+3=15 episodes(about 20-25 min). some very good underwater scenes of sharks and other underwater predators as well as other sea life and coral reefs etc. that last part is either a pro or a con as this set goes all over the map with what it shows; in other words, it's not just about 'killers of the deep'. i don't mind this much as i enjoyed the manatee and dolphin stuff.

cons:
usually brief, yet frequent enough to be annoying, shots of the humans that disrupt the underwater photography. if you want long scenes of uninterrupted underwater footage prepare to be disappointed. also, the visual quality is poor for dvds. at times, looks like vhs or you-tube-like video. you get what you pay for so don't expect high-quality visuals(which does sort of negate some of the potentially beautiful shots of fish and coral life doesn't it?)

The bonus features are: 3 extra episodes, previews of other Madacy/sea-related dvd's, and 'direct scene access'.
