Synopsis: Experience up-close encounters with some of the most remarkable marine life ever captured on film while examining the impact of global climate change on the ocean wilderness as award-winning director/cinematographer Howard Hall (Into the Deep, Deep Sea 3D) travels from South Australia to the Indo-Pacific to teach viewers the importance of keeping our oceans clean for future generations. Just how great of an effect does global warming have on marine wildlife, and what can be done to ensure the future well-being of our planet? As the filmmakers reveal the delicacy of our fragile ecosystem, viewers are allowed the unique opportunity to see what we risk losing should we fail to address the issue of global climate change sooner rather than later. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews

  • Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
    The footage is spectacular, the colors electric, the life aquatic trippier than anything you'll see in even the most wildly imaginative animated fare.
  • Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly
    It's impossible not to be wowed by some of the images in Under the Sea 3D, 
the coolest of which are a nice 
reminder that, even in the age of CG wizardry, the best special effects still come straight from Mother Nature.
  • Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
    Under the Sea 3D is a beautiful reminder that movies can take us to places we've never been before. There are still worlds to conquer out there that don't require the gussying up of CGI effects to hold our attention.
  • Christy Lemire, Associated Press
    Even about halfway in, even having settled into your seat with those plastic glasses nestled on your nose, you'll still find yourself dazzled again and again by the impossibly breathtaking beauty of the IMAX adventure Under the Sea 3D.
  • Tom Long, Detroit News
    The plot may not be much -- amazing creatures live in the sea and if we keep polluting the world a bunch of them will die, so let's stop being such jerks -- but the visuals are absolutely fantastic.
  • Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
    If you're not taking the family on an exotic beach vacation anytime soon, consider this a reasonable alternative.
  • Lou Lumenick, New York Post
    The 3-D effects are uncanny; much of the audience ducked when sea snakes lunged at it. You can't get that on your TV set. Yet.
  • Reyhan Harmanci, San Francisco Chronicle
    Oceanic movies in actual science museums are far more interesting and nuanced than this documentary -- not to mention the wildly popular Planet Earth series, which even in 2-D looks better.
  • Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times
    As intimate and enjoyable as anything Imax has done in 3-D.
  • Peter Howell, Toronto Star
    This is the fourth Imax underwater excursion, and the second in 3-D, and it may just be the best yet.
