  1. Deep Sea 3D, along with the recent Imax films "Coral Reef Adventure" and "Volcanoes of the Deep Sea," is a glorious example of educational entertainment at its best.
  2. 90
    It would be a mistake to think that if you've seen one fish up close and personal you've seen them all. Deep Sea 3D is a total-immersion undersea adventure, in which the oceans' glories are on vivid display in three dimensions.
  3. 88
    Forget haunted houses and the mountains of the moon: There's no better environment to show off the wonder of the immersive IMAX 3-D experience than the deep blue sea.
  4. 80
    The immersive quality of 3-D is particularly well suited to undersea documentaries, and this one, directed by Howard Hall ("Into the Deep"), offers a close-up look at such fantastic creatures as the fried egg jellyfish, the mantis shrimp, the sand tiger shark, and the thuggish wolf eel.
  5. 75
    A lively score by Danny Elfman and some of the most dramatic sound-effects work since the Three Stooges only add to the appeal of Deep Sea 3-D.
  6. It's all about the pictures. Those images create a vision of nature that even a strip miner would want to conserve.

    Imax 3-D process has lost its original novelty, and little is done in Deep Sea to find new and exciting ways of using the medium.

    it is one of the best 3D movies ever. You can feel the life with those animals. It seems like you are swimming with them and trying to figure it is one of the best 3D movies ever.

    Fantastic footage. Really good use of 3D. Producers concentrated on the more bizarre, unusual kinds of undersea life rather than on ordinary Fantastic footage. Really good use of 3D. Producers concentrated on the more bizarre, unusual kinds of undersea life rather than on ordinary fish, which made it really interesting. My only "complaint" is that it was too short. It was so engaging that I wanted it to last longer. Expand
