Max eye indulgence at IMAX.
4 March 2012 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

As a movie, this is okay. It's entertaining enough, it's too short to qualify as a feature (about 40 minutes, I think) and it throws some bits of information out to the audience in between visually stunning moments and some standard words of warning about the environment. Narrated by Jim Carrey.

But I can't simply judge Under The Sea 3D as a movie. Oh no. I saw Under The Sea 3D as my first full-on IMAX experience and that takes the whole thing to another level. To judge this film just as a film, you'd probably give it a 5. If you were feeling generous. It's . . . . . . . . nice.

But take those images and put them on to the biggest cinema screen that I've personally ever seen, maintaining clarity of image and showing the whole thing off in genuinely impressive 3D, and you have quite an amazing cinematic experience. The first few moments just blew me away in a way that hasn't happened to me in the cinema since I sat down and watched Avatar.

There are a few writers involved, strangely enough, but director Howard Hall can really pass all of the praise on to the people who patiently waited to capture so many great images. Sea snakes that seem to float out towards the audience, fish darting in and out of the screen as well as just left and right, sharks, jellyfish and large stingrays - all of them are beautifully clear and rendered in the best 3D I've had the pleasure of seeing.

Would I rush out to buy this on Bluray? Nope. Would I go back to rewatch this at my nearest IMAX? You betcha.
