Scuba Diving from the Edge of Your Seat!

I rarely go to the movies anymore. We have a plasma TV at home, so it's only on special occasions that I'll fork out my meager pennies to see a flick at the theater. This movie was a real treat. Not only are you plunked right into the oceans of Indonesia, and other tropical locations, but you witness the marvels of nature that are rarely viewed by the human eye. Seals seem inches away. Great White sharks are within biting distance. The dance of sea life is an underwater ballet.

I'm a big snorkeling fan, and with all this cold weather, I've been dying to visit someplace tropical so I can indulge my passion. Until I do, this 40 minute gem will satiate my thirst, without having to endure a 13 hour plane ride.

Must See 3D!!!

I have seen lots of 3D movies in my time either through Real D, Analgyph 3D, or various theme park attractions such as T2:3D or The Amazing Spiderman ride at Universal Studios.

That said this is the first time I have truly seen 3D.

IMAX 3D is something that must be experienced. I can't speak for other 3D IMAX offerings playing currently since this is the first one I have seen (barring the disappointing 3D segments of Superman Returns which were not made with the intention of a 3D release). I can only speak to the quality of this film, Under The Sea 3D.

I would say watching this movie is like really being under the sea except if you really were you would be completely wet and would have drowned long before the movie had finished. Instead the experience is more like the ocean is somehow glued to your eyes so that everything in the sea is like an underwater show made just for you. Instead of simply staring in awe at the images on the IMAX screen towering in front of you it is more like the screen has somehow become your eyes to the world. The 3D is simply that good.

The content of the film is merely standard nature documentary fare. I found myself often not paying much attention to Jim Carrey's narration and simply being enamored by the visions before me. That is not to say he is a bad narrator. His voice is soothing to listen to and he stays away from the more wacky tones he is known for. Its just that sometimes images say so much more than any word could ever do. In the case of this film that has never been more true.

Overall, in terms of the actual content this movie is not breaking any new ground. While it is always fascinating to see just how many different creatures exist in the vast oceans every day while we are out going about our daily routines there isn't much here that you haven't seen in some form elsewhere. The movie of course delves into the global warming problem towards the end which is a downer, but I suppose a necessary one. The real reason to see this movie is for the 3D. If you have never seen IMAX 3D then by all means go out and see this film. It is simply amazing! I can't give this movie a perfect ten on the whole because of the content, but the 3D experience itself is certainly a 10! Overall I give this a 9/10.

Under the Sea 3D: Movie Review from The Massie Twins

Anymore, specialty IMAX features seem to be about nature or dinosaurs. It's repetitious to be watching another underwater creature 3D film, but it's hard to deny the entertainment value of seeing rare monstrosities and beautiful mysteries jumping out of the screen and scurrying about at what feels like an arm-length away. No matter how limited the subject matter, the effects of IMAX are always outstanding. Clocking in at less than one hour, Under the Sea doesn't outstay its welcome and gives us a tidy look at some of the coral reef's most impressive wildlife. Jim Carrey narrates and manages to only rarely inflect his recognizable comedically exaggerated voice.

Starting in New Guinea and working around the southern coral reefs of Australia, Under the Sea investigates the lives of many fascinating fishes. From the stonefish, the most venomous fish in the sea, to sea snakes, the most poisonous animal in the ocean, the audience is subjected to a myriad of stunning sea life. The coral triangle where the film starts is home to more marine species than anywhere else on Earth, including the alien presence of cuttlefish, symbiotic shrimp and gobies, squid, jellyfish and more. Australia's 12,000-year-old Great Barrier Reef houses schools of convict fish (the food of the adults is still completely unknown; some scientists speculate that the babies feed them slime, while others predict they consume their own young), rare sea dragons, great white sharks, whales, sea lions and more.

As if meeting a requirement, Under the Sea also delivers a public service announcement insisting that humans need to start caring about the environment; harmful carbon dioxide is rapidly destroying the reef and making it impossible for the various sea life to survive. The final moments show the leisurely, playful sea lions adorably snuggling up to the camera – had they shown the hideous stonefish instead, the effects would be completely different, even though they are just as wondrous.

While all of the IMAX films deliver an engaging 3-D experience, Under the Sea takes the adventure one step further (or closer) by bringing its fascinating subject so near to the viewer one can't help but reach out just to make sure they're still in a theater. Every underwater being appears literally within touching distance, giving the audience the impression that they are the divers filming these wonders of nature. Jim Carrey's narration may contain interesting facts about the seldom seen proceedings, but it's hard to pay attention to his voice when you're dodging looming sea snakes and schools of catfish.
