Storyline

A survey of the world's oceans, emphasizing the fact that it's a single interconnected ocean, and the dependence of all life on the ocean. Along the way we spend time with some surfers, with researchers cataloging and tracking whales, a Coast Guard rough weather rescue squad, a deep-ocean research team, and in the Palau Islands, notably at a saltwater lake with an unusual jellyfish variety.

The best IMAX film I have seen...
6 July 1999 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I am an avid fan of the IMAX format, but rarely have I ever been a fan of any IMAX film. This is the one IMAX film that I feel has used the advantages of the format in nearly every shot, and besides that, it is an elegantly produced little film. Extremely beautiful, with many highlights. It is a must-see for all those who've never been exactly impressed by anything at an IMAX show (although the 'industry' is working overtime in amping up this cinema-sideshow - they promise it will be the 'next big thing' in movies). DON'T WATCH IT AT HOME.
