The front cover of this disc proudly displays a quote from a review that says : "The most fetching use of 3D technology since Avatar". But this is not an idle boast or exaggeration. There are some truly stunning images here and although there is some occasional use of computer-generated animation, these images are drawn from the real world.

We know from previous nature documentaries that time-lapse photography can produce some incredible, unexpected images; as we see plants sped up until we see them moving almost like insects or animals. But what about time-lapse photography in incredibly high definition and in 3D. Does it get any better than this?

Well apart from that, this film pioneers new techniques in 3D Macro Photography, to show unbelievable detail in close-up of plants. We also see images from electron microscopes,of pollen grains magnified seven thousand times, in 3D. Further than that, special camera techniques are used to show how insects see plants in the ultra violet spectrum.

There is such extraordinary variety on show here, that you forget that the vast majority of this was shot in one place in England - the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. But this also gives a serious scientific focus to the films. For example, we see how a species of water lily was saved from extinction by the work done at Kew.

Of course we know that anything David Attenborough puts his name to, will have the utmost integrity in terms of scientific rigour and this is no different. It is not the BBC, but it is the same team who made Flying Monsters (Blu-ray 3D)[Region Free] and we have the same spectacular photography and attention to detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent BluRay 16 May 2013
By Crunchy

This is the best 3D BluRay I own. The quality of video clips and time lapses is stunning. I made many 3D pictures and videos in the last 8 years and was often disappointed by the quality (e.g. 3D window violation, vertical misalignment, exaggerated parallax) of some professional 3D BluRay products. However, "Kingdom of Plants in 3D" is one of the best product so far. Not only due to almost perfect 3D, but also due to extremely interesting subject. I never imagined that plants can be so interesting. :-)
Thank you, David Attenborough!

I got this to test out my new passive 3d tv. All the hyperbole in the other reviews is justified. It is an astounding piece of work, whether you like plants or not.

Brilliant film. Stunned for whole length of film. Feels like looking through a window rather than watching a screen. Used Alienware 3d laptop with nvidia active shutter glasses

David Attenborough is fantastic as always and if you have a 3D screen and want to experience a next generation documentary, this is the one.

The pictures are absolutely beautiful and stunning and so are the 3D effects. Also the content was very enticing, I can't wait for another David Attenborough 3D documentary.

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Approach and great use of 3D 18 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this series when it came out on TV. Now I can watch it in 3D it's even better. Makes really good use of the 3D effect without overwhelming you with unnecessary pop-out effects.
