A tribute to the ocean, "Oceans 3D" takes viewers on a voyage through, among others, Californian kelp forests, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and Roca Partida Island off the coast of Mexico, which is home to thousands of sharks. Audiences will witness some of the most spectacular and unforgettable scenes of life beneath the waves ever captured in 3D: the manta ray's enchanting ballet; the noble procession of hammerhead sharks; the lion fish's relentless hunt; a group of young dolphins playing algae-football; the astonishing beauty of the Spanish dancer sea slug; and a unique encounter with the largest cetaceans on the planet.

I went to see the premier at the local 3D cinema. Ocean + 3D sounded like it should be an amazing adventure. But reality was different - the movie is gray and repetitive, the water inhabitants shown are dull and totally boring. The narration is targeted to children only (this isn't really a big problem). I have seen 2D ocean documentaries that were times more enjoying. The animals presented in Oceanworld are mostly the regular ones you can think of - turtles (as the protagonist - the whole movie is from the turtle's point of view), dolphins, seals, whales (a few kinds), sharks (also a few kinds), jellyfishes. When the movie ended, it seemed to me everyone else had as much fun as I did - people silently left the cinema, looking to the ground. A few funny moments and the 3d images of dangerous animals you could otherwise see only 2d add up to 3 stars - and that's how I am rating Oceanworld.
