I consider myself a documentary, "Discovery Channel" freak, and of the many topics and themes which interest me the most, sharks in general rank among the top 10.
So my review of this DVD may be viewed as biased from the start, hence a high 4 or 5-star rating may be expected. Unfortunately, I've seen the disc and am somewhat disappointed. For one, how can you call a disc "Search For The Great Sharks" when you essentially featured just two species (the whale shark and the ever crowd-pleasing great white)? Nothing about hammerheads? Makos? Tiger sharks?
Nevertheless, I give it 3 stars if only for the overall audio and video quality (expect nothing less from IMAX - I own a couple others myself). Also interesting trivia which would probably please an audience of all ages. The film, unfortunately, is only 46 mins long (how come all IMAXes are this short? grrr!), with nine chapters as follows: 1. Domain of the Shark; 2. Behavior; 3. Steel Cage; 4. Western Australia; 5. Spotted Whale Shark; 6. Great White Shark; 7. Ancient Survivors; 8. Credits; 9. "Making Of".
I intend to order the Operation: Shark Attack 5-disc set soon, hopefully there'll me something more there. For shark freaks out there I'd also recommend getting a copy of the Discovery Channel Great White video (on VHS or VCD) or even the DVD of "Deep Blue Sea" with its interesting featurette(s).
