Watching "Sea Monsters" at the Omnimax was a real letdown. The film was woefully dull, its creators believing that a reel's worth of CG-animated water creatures is enough to carry a film. The few acting segments were stilted, and there was virtually no storyline to hold my interest. There was a lot of potential in the subject matter, but it would've been better at half the running time, or as a small chunk of a larger topic. The only real highlight of the film was an interesting song by Peter Gabriel that ran over the end credits. The animation itself was artificial, and it seemed that we saw the same sequences played out repeatedly.
