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.

Deep Sea is narrated by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, and as other reviewers have mentioned, they did a better job than Jim Carry's voice in Under the Sea. However, both my wife and I liked the colors of Under the Sea better. Under the Sea is more colorful and the "Potato Cod" scene is just amazing in 3D.
I think both Under the Sea and Deep Sea are great movies to have in your 3D collection. They are very short, only about 45 minutes each, so one may say price is a tad high on these titles; however, rest assured that you'll find more opportunities to watch and share these with your friends than the full length 3D movies. Besides, you can always get the single disk versions at a lower rate.
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.
Dont get me wrong, the movie was still a blast and at times things came out of the screen especially the scene with the grouper fish and kelp in the kelp forest.
This is a great film for those of you who want to experience 3D for the Family. IMAX is the very best and the scenes are stunning. Ocean life is beautiful you feel like you a scuba diving and right there in the picture.
If this is your first 3D experience it will blow you out of your shoes. Quite frankly I own several 3D films with the latest being The Avenger's from last year. The Ocean based 3D films are a great learning tool for children. I suggest that parents watch these types of films with their children to explain some of the scenes to them. Anyway at least to this point I haven't found a 3D that I haven't enjoyed immensely.
Hope this helps.
