Where are the giants?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: OCEAN GIANTS 3D (Blu-ray 3D & 2D Version) REGION FREE (Blu-ray)
I had very high hopes for this one - to get to see ocean giants drift by in 3D. But there are no giants to be seen here. The only creatures of some size are the manta rays. It's just another documentary about fish and corals in a coral reef, and it's also extremely slow moving, with for example a rather small turtle grazing for about 5 minutes. I would have been absolutely fascinated if I'd have met that turtle while diving myself, but it's another thing to sell the film commercially.
The 3D is also not very good. There are plenty of shots that are too close, too unsharp or too shaky to watch, and your eyes hurt. Maybe the photo works better in 2D, as this is 3D/2D-release. You get the feeling that you're not really watching a 3D-film. There are one or two small, nice fishes that swim in your living room, and some shots with marine snow, but mostly you can't really see that it's 3D you're watching. The depth is missing. I've seen other 3D films that seem to take place in a secret landscape several meters into my projection screen. So I'm not only looking for things that protrude into the room.
I feel like checking with Amazon if I can return it.
