Editorial Reviews

The depths of the ocean remain one of the last great mysteries on Earth. Far below the waves is an incredible place teeming with life, but few people have seen it... until now. For the first time you can be there, 12,000 feet below the ocean's surface, inside an unparalleled undersea volcanic world filled with strange creatures and dramatic landscapes. You've never seen anything like this as brand-new lighting technology far superior to anything that's ever been used before illuminates this secret realm. Exhibited to great acclaim in IMAX and other giant-screen theatres around the world.

Given that they spend a lot of time at the lightless bottom of the ocean exploring "black smoker" geothermal vents, this was visually phenomenal. I heard somewhere that they used a new lighting system, and the color at depth was excellent - the teeming life they found down there was astonishing, and the mystery of the "patterns in the sand cores" was also quite interesting - possibly more so because the actual creatures responsible for the patterns had not, by the end of the movie, been located.

As a professional scientist in another field, I found this riveting - and so did my six-year-old. Can't say that about too many nonfiction films out there! One of the best features is that the film does go into detail, but mixes the narrative detail in with the stunning visuals in such a way that while older viewers are listening to the science as well as looking, the kids are looking at all the cool (well, hot, actually) stuff and may also be listening.

First class adventure beneath the sea at depths and sea floors which are truly an "other" world.....but not. Stunning visual wonders, facts and information about our current world and a wonderful adventure into the amazing world of our earth's past. See it for yourself. Words are pale imitations.

I saw this feature at our local IMAX and as soon as it was released on DVD I had to have it! Volcanoes of the Deep Sea features footage of some VERY cool invertebrates living DEEP under water at hot vents on the sea floor. Ed Harris does a great job narrating. I wish these IMAX features were longer!

This is a film whose strength lies mostly in its first-class imagery. The high definition underwater film coupled with the excellent CG sequences create a very unique and intimate look at life on the hydrothermal vents. If you are new to this ecosystem, you will be truly amazed and taken aback at how alien it is. But for those who are already somewhat familiar with hydrothermal and chemosynthetic ecosystems, you won't be learning anything new. The film is fairly light on information, preferring to dazzle the viewer with closeup looks at the vents and impressive computer generated scenes.

This... on HDTV... is just like in an IMAX! I'm an earth science teacher, and I can tell you this mesmerized the class. In fact, it's great for life science as well.

I bought this for my fifth graders. In fifth grade we learn all about energy and how the sun provides energy for all living things on Earth. My students were absolutely blown away that geothermal heat could be the source energy for living things as well. I showed this video in the last two weeks of school, and students created an energy pyramid to reflect the hydrothermal vent environment. My video had a very good educational "extra feature" with science demonstrations that explained concepts students needed to know to understand hydrothermal vent environments. Awesome, awesome enrichment tool. I will be looking for more videos from this producer. Please comment if you know any...

In response to a review previously posted by a customer, this movie has everything to do with volcanoes. I was impressed with the cinematography and rigorous scientific studies that were compiled to make this film. The film is based in the mid Atlantic ocean ridge, where there are numerous active and inactive volcanoes. The film then shows the animals and bacterium that live and thrive in very harsh conditions such as: crushing pressure and very poisonous gasses venting from the volcanic sea floor.

I highly recommend this movie. Very educational and informative!

I thought this was a very beautiful movie. You can't go wrong buying this one. The colors were incredible.
I know a filmmaker who creates IMAX films. The effort is unbelievable.

Volcanoes Under the Sea gives us a glimpse into our enormous ocean rift zones which circle the globe.
There are so many volcanoes that I don't know if anyone can count them. Then there exists the unbelievable
life surrounding the volcanic vents. What enchantment! I bet this deep sea life existed before we did (yes, you and me-dummy).

If you want to learn something new and perhaps enchant your children, buy this video. I loved it!
