Slight Technical Oversight, 21 August 2006
Author: Mr XXX from Malaysia

Right from the start, you'll be immersed and transferred immediately into the breathtaking underwater world. The story starts with the narration of a sea turtle named Aris, as he guides you throughout the entire movie with his informative and sometimes cheeky comments.

This 3D movie lets you experience what a sea creature, in this case, a sea turtle, see and feel when they're in their underwater habitat. In 3D, the visual is absolutely stunning. The sand tiger sharks, the silver-tipped sharks, hammerheads, great whites and the gigantic whale shark all have a field day by swimming right in front of you, poking their snouts off the screen every now and then, for the signature "screen piercing" effects.

Then of course, there are the other "supporting casts", like the playful seals, the intelligent dolphins, and other ocean fishes like sardines and remoras.

There's one gripe though, the projected 3D visual in this session (a media preview) was a bit misaligned, thus creating "double vision" effect for most parts of the movie, and for example, whenever a shark or a fish comes right through the screen towards you, you will have a very hard time focusing on it, which in turn creates a "double vision" and a strain to your vision. I sincerely believe that this was a technical oversight by the local IMAX staff and I hope that this "misalignment error" will be corrected for the screening proper, as what the filmmaker had intended it to be.

Not bad for an underwater documentary featuring sharks. The greatest asset here is of course the magnificent 3D imagery and the educational factors that this film has brought about to the viewers. This is a must-see for sea creature lovers. If not for the slight "misalignment" technical error, this movie will have a much better impact.
