Editorial Reviews

Papua, the home island of the cannibals in the far Pacific ocean. Guinea contains many islands which are significantly diversified: enormous mountains, highlands, swamps and huge rocks alternate. The spectacular wildlife, unspoiled wilderness are species habitat of many animal and plant. Papua New Guinea is one of the most culturally diverse countries on the Earth. According to this, 841 different languages are listed for the country. It is also one of the most rural, as only 18 percent of people live in urban centres. The country is one of the world's least explored, culturally and geographically, and many undiscovered species of plants and animals live there. If you like the amazing nature recordings also from the underwater (to show the rich life world of Pacific Ocean) and interesting cultures and secrets of the cannibals join and come with us for this exciting journey! This film was made by a REAL 3D method you can play and watch it in 3D and also in 2D FULL HD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fraudulent May 2, 2013
Verified Purchase
Hmm... where to start? 3D it is. About Papua it is NOT.
Putting aside the 3D technology, where some credit must be given, this production is nothing short of fraudulent.
Papua - the secret islands of the cannibals... forget that discussion. Diversification of wildlife, cultures, vegetation, etc... forget that discussion. What you will get is about 90% of underwater film, which is beautiful, but NOT what this DVD is marketed to be about. Moreover, the narration (no doubt the script) sounds like it came out of the 1960s or 1970s. At times, the statements are just contradictory to the visual evidence. As the narrator explains about the people being untouched by modern society, we see kids wearing western-style uniforms, churches made of concrete, etc. Often, the narrator is still explaining a fish or coral when the visual has moved on to something else (except for extended shots of the manta and cuttlefish). This points to the editing; sub standard, at best. Scenes are obviously repeated, cutting between fish is too rapid never allowing the viewer to take in the beauty of the species (except for manta and cuttlefish, although, even then, when the rare all black manta is identified the visual is spliced away to some other fish). I could continue, but shall not for brevity.
In summary, if you want to watch a relaxing non intelligent tourist-dive-boat or travel-shop-type production of a reef, then this is the DVD for you. If you want to watch something about Papua (be that West Papua, Papua or Papua New Guinea) this is NOT the DVD to buy.
Seriously, the makers of this production should be held accountable for their deception - unless I only have been given 1 part of 10 possible episodes about Papua.
(Oh, OK, a declaration: I grew up in PNG so maybe my expectations were more than a put-me-to-sleep 3D promo of a reef).
I hope their other productions are better as I have ordered a few... oh, dear.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even worth the $10. May 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
3D quality is low. Zero wow factor. The are many times the same loop is played over again with a different voice over. More than half of the show is underwater simply with fish swimming around. A lot is still picture. This is not National Geo quality by any means.

I didn't finish it 100% and simply threw it in the trash. I couldn't even use it to show off my 3D. I cancelled my Yellowstone Park 3D purchase which hadn't shipped yet since it appeared to be coming form the same source.

3.0 out of 5 stars Papua 3D video. So. So April 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
Below are my judgement of this 3D video:

Nice under water footage with tons of wild sea fish and corals
Good 3D effects
Good background audio quality although the Bass is annoying some times
Great paradise location
The movie has a setting that you can turn off the annoying narrator
Less than $10 delivered with no tax. Not bad

Not a quite 1080p footage
Very annoying and dull narrator with a foreign accent that puts you to sleep, so turn it off at the setting.
Some of the 3d images are pretty bad on the left eye as it seems like the camera lens was dirty or foggy when recorded
Some of the images are too saturated and poor visuals
Too long video so it is difficult to keep you awake
The under water images are usually repeated over and over, same fish, same corals, etc.
More than 3/4 of the footage is underwater and a little talk about Papua nor their people culture, etc.
only fish and corals, not eels, dolphins, whales, octopus, etc. some manta rays and one turtle.

I will put this video on sale at ebay, I hope to get $5.00 for it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Island of Cannibals - NOT EVEN CLOSE July 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
What an absolute waste of time, effort and money, mine and theirs. I was expecting a documentary of the people with some colourful costumes, tribal dancing and great scenery. This has no story, no logical flow, no decent imagery, centres around one tiny village off the coast of eastern Papua somewhere and rarely shows any people. It repeats countless boring minutes (seems like hours) of tropical underwater footage shot around one small area of pretty boring coral reef. This has to be the worst purchase I have ever made of anything, it's even worse than my first car, which blew up after 3 days.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fraud - home movie quality at best June 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
This DVD is simply not worth buying or watching at any price. The writing and narration is equally as poor as the video and editing quality. Lots of low quality shots, 3D gimmicks and even repeated scenes due to poor editing. Other than being in 3D this film is like watching a low end home movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Papua? PLEASE! April 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
I believe the above reviewers may have seen a different dvd from that delivered to me. Papua itself is poorly represented several views of the mushroom islands and the same black cockatoo about 5 times, and what is this "dancing with the natives" referred to? There were no natives on this dvd...only some giggly school chidren (shown twice) and the majority of the film was of the coral reefs, not PAPUA! As to the gentleman who viewed it 3 times and could not find the duplicated fish shots,,,view it again because they are there,,in spades,,with only a change in the boring commentary..this is a real loser of a 3d as at times the screens do not jibe giving a cross eyed experience to the viewer,,,caveat emptor..there are better coral reef films out there..the only good thing is the but still not worth the money.
