Must See 3D!!!
28 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen lots of 3D movies in my time either through Real D, Analgyph 3D, or various theme park attractions such as T2:3D or The Amazing Spiderman ride at Universal Studios.

That said this is the first time I have truly seen 3D.

IMAX 3D is something that must be experienced. I can't speak for other 3D IMAX offerings playing currently since this is the first one I have seen (barring the disappointing 3D segments of Superman Returns which were not made with the intention of a 3D release). I can only speak to the quality of this film, Under The Sea 3D.

I would say watching this movie is like really being under the sea except if you really were you would be completely wet and would have drowned long before the movie had finished. Instead the experience is more like the ocean is somehow glued to your eyes so that everything in the sea is like an underwater show made just for you. Instead of simply staring in awe at the images on the IMAX screen towering in front of you it is more like the screen has somehow become your eyes to the world. The 3D is simply that good.

The content of the film is merely standard nature documentary fare. I found myself often not paying much attention to Jim Carrey's narration and simply being enamored by the visions before me. That is not to say he is a bad narrator. His voice is soothing to listen to and he stays away from the more wacky tones he is known for. Its just that sometimes images say so much more than any word could ever do. In the case of this film that has never been more true.

Overall, in terms of the actual content this movie is not breaking any new ground. While it is always fascinating to see just how many different creatures exist in the vast oceans every day while we are out going about our daily routines there isn't much here that you haven't seen in some form elsewhere. The movie of course delves into the global warming problem towards the end which is a downer, but I suppose a necessary one. The real reason to see this movie is for the 3D. If you have never seen IMAX 3D then by all means go out and see this film. It is simply amazing! I can't give this movie a perfect ten on the whole because of the content, but the 3D experience itself is certainly a 10! Overall I give this a 9/10.
