Synopsis

Dive in! A sea full of wonders awaits. Famed oceanic filmmaker Howard Hall (Into the Deep) guides this immersive adventure that lets you swim alongside some of the most exotic creatures of the planet. Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet provide the narration. And an unusual array of finned and scaled stars are ready to steal every scene. Among them: Green Sea Turtles who gather off Kona so that Surgeonfish can strip harmful algae from their shells...an ominous, predatory Humboldt Squid that changes color four times per second like a flashing strobe light...an underdog Mantis Shrimp, whose claws have the speed of a 22-caliber bullet, in battle against a hungry octopus (the shrimp wins!). So many creatures. So many amazing stories. Sea them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 3d. 8 Aug 2012
Format:Blu-ray
The 3d in this film , like all the undersea 3d adventures is excellent. 3d really shines for underwater photography. The film features a beautiful soundtrack and alternating narration from john depp and kate winslet. They are speaking to you and it works, there are actually one star reviews complaining the music is too loud, actually they are wrong ,this is mellow music and the words come through clearly. This like most imax products is only 40 minutes long but each minute is fascinating and poignant as we learn that 90% of large fish have been taken out of the sea by overfishing, mankind is very good at wiping out everything in his path though. we have known that for years. Still this is a wonderful 3d movie that inspires awe. It takes place in reef areas mostly and not the deep sea. Those creatures down there in true deep would make a great movie though. This was shown at movie theaters and was NOT done to showcase 3d as one reviewer stated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! 11 July 2014
By StephJ TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is by far the best underwater film I have yet seen. Having watched dozens over the past few weeks, I thought I had seen some good ones, but this film sets new standards. The 3D is fantastic, with the clearest underwater images I have ever seen, and the filming in general is first class with wonderful, vibrant colors and amazing sequences.. I loved the sound track, and the narrators, I thought did a great job, with just the right amount of information and some humour.

The content is fantastic - a whole array of fabulous creatures, many of which I have not even glimpsed on those other documentaries. Their feeding and defensive/evasive behaviour is shown like in no other documentary I have seen.

I was totally mesmerised and enraptured by this brilliant production and cannot praise it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERLAND UNDER THE SEA 13 Dec 2010
Format:Blu-ray
A beautiful and clourful underwater documentary -I was totally amazed at rhe bright blues and pinks of the various species of fish and crustaceans With the added bonus of the 3d effects ,this bought the whole documentary to life and with danny elfmans music (he scored edward scissorhands etc) this made for an enchanting trip to discover the fascinating facts that occur beneath the oceans to keep it all in balance A DEFINITE 3D BUY

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 3D! 16 Sep 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is by far the best example of 3D television I have experienced so far. The film starts as if it is another mediocre excuse to use 3D with a poor quality scene of jellyfish. The scene then changes to a most fantastic 3D treat. If you want to see exactly how good your 3D tv can be then get yourself a copy of this IMAX treat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Viewing, Terrible Narration 23 Oct 2008
By Ursula K. Raphael TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This DVD features a wide variety of sea life including: jellyfish, starfish, coral life, strobing squid, sharks, sea turtles, sting rays -even a whale. My three-year old never gets tired of watching it; he loves the parts centered on the octopus the best.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars a bit jack and jill... 24 Feb 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Very good 3d content, although i'd been hoping for more swim past shots of colourful reefs. The commentary is aimed at the under-twelve market with the interesting info buried amidst a mass of banality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfull 3D movie 13 Sep 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As an owner of a 3D TV I tend to buy what ever they can produce, shame if the rumours about 3D not taking of well enough and that movie makers are thing of stopping making them, watching 3D nature is so interesting and puts them into more perspective for me, I think they are superb and will keep buying them as they produce them. This particular one was worth the hard work by the production crew for me.

More like a Blu-Ray view into an exotic fish tank.
The images are everything - don't expect to be educated!
