I bought this with high hopes. I couldn't find any reviews for it. I am a huge fan of 3D documentaries. After watching documentaries such as Under the Sea and Deep Sea, you have a certain expectation. As far as content, I don't expect anything different. A coral reef is a coral reef.

The Good:
-The only thing positive is there is a lot of pop out at certain places. However, the depth is of the backgroud is not there. It seems very flat with the fishing floating. The good isn't that great.

The Bad:
-This appears to have been made for a college class. The quality of the camera and pictures is par at best.
-The music is absolutely horrible. It is techno at times.
-Was this the first time for the camera man being underwater? There are scenes where it looks like something I would do filming my son's birthday party. My son is in the picture, he is almost out. You see the turtle, you see a tiny piece of the turtle as the camera moves up and down or side to side.
-The camera stays on uninteresting scenes for a long time. There are fish swimming. You watch them swim. No narration. The pictures is not good.

I don't think the makers of this cared about the quality, but pushing out a product.

Bottom line, do not waste your money. I wouldn't purchase it again, even if it was $5. If a family member leaves it to you in their estate, maybe watch it for some of the pop out early. That is probably it.

The main problem with this DVD is light. Or lack of it. Both artificial and natural daylight.

This is either because it was shot on dull days, where the natural light has not penetrated deep enough to show the reef colours, or the artificial light is not good enough.
I suspect both.

In some scenes it is obvious that the only artificial light is a separately hand held underwater torch.....which bounces around all over the place. It simply isn't wide angled anough to light the subject and surrounds.

The overall effect is an underlit, very blue reef. The whole point of diving a coral reef is to see the fantastic colours. You just don't get that here. Add to that some dreadful over exposure and I was left thinking I was watching an amateur's holiday video.

Totally unprofessional camera work just adds to the impression that this is a very poor quality professional film.
There is no close up photography at all.

I was going to give this 2*, but changed my mind when I saw that the 5* review here was simply advertising by the filmaker. They have an identical review on another of their underwater DVDs.

This is completely dishonest - and probably illegal by Amazon's terms & conditions, so it gets a 1*.

I have two other rented 3D DVDs that are way better than this, Amazing Ocean & Imax Deep Sea. I haven't decided which one of those I prefer, but I really wouldn't recommend Fascination Coral Reef to anyone. Amazing Ocean is good and I will review them once I've had a chance to revisit both.

I got this when I got my first 3D tv and I am very happy with the dvd
It has more then enough 3D to show what your TV can do and the kids love to watch the fish
This is not something your going to watch over and over but when someone comes over and wants a quick demo of the 3DTV this is what I put in
