A good documentary and a great filmgoing experience., 15 July 2009
Author: J. Nelson Smith from United States

IMAX 3D is something to behold for any moviegoer. Long gone are the days of the red and blue paper glasses. Replaced, now, with larger, even goofier, looking glasses, IMAX 3D is an experience not to be missed.

Under the Sea 3D is exactly what it sounds like, an underwater documentary presented in 3D. The 40 minute film is narrated by Jim Carrey, who only cracks a few jokes as he narrates the lives of these amazing creatures. Throughout the film Howard Hall and his crew takes us on an adventure to the underwater reefs of Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

What we see is an astounding array of sea life which includes, cuttlefish, jellyfish, squids, eels, crabs, seahorses, turtles, various fish, sharks, and even sea lions. All presented in crystal clear quality and in 3D. The sounds, some of which I suspect were added in later, are so clear that you can hear each step as a crab walks across the sand covered ocean floor.

The 3D makes you feel like you are never any further than two feet away from the action at any given time. There are even a few moments when it feels like the sea creatures are going to actually touch your nose. It is quite an experience. Even if you have been disappointed with your recent 3D experiences in theaters check out the IMAX 3D, it is truly amazing.

Although I found the film to be entertaining and educational, most of the sea life presented in the film I have seen in other documentaries. This is not to say the film is lacking in it's content. There is never a dull moment. The filmmakers also take time to make a point about the importance of preserving our oceans and the looming threats to them due to global warming.

I was, however, disappointed to see the film was only 40 minutes in length. I suppose this is due to the production costs of an IMAX 3D feature, but considering the amount of great footage which must have been captured during all the dives, it is a shame that most of it had to end up on the cutting room floor.

To get the most from the film, and any 3D feature for that matter, I suggest sitting close enough to the screen so the edges of the screen are not visible in your 3D glasses. This worked well for us when we saw "Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk" at the IMAX 3D earlier this year. This time we sat near the back and as a result I could see the edges of the screen, which at times made it seem as if I was looking into an aquarium instead of being a part of the film. Keep this in mind and you should have a satisfying 3D experience.

A word of warning to parents with young children, although this is a great film for kids, it is a nature documentary and there are scenes of mating and feeding. The mating scenes look more like kissing and the majority of the feeding is so quick that you barely see it happen, however, there are a few less than pleasant feeding scenes. If you have small children whom you feel may be disturbed by these scenes, I suggest viewing the film first without them. Don't worry, you'll enjoy the film so much that you'll want to see it twice anyway.

Despite it's short runtime, I highly recommend seeing "Under the Sea 3D", it is an entertaining and educational film the entire family can enjoy.
