The footage is spectacular, the colors electric, the life aquatic trippier than anything you'll see in even the most wildly imaginative animated fare.

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.

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.

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.
