Has never been released on any home-video format, & has only been screened in select IMAX Theatres with gigantic screens. The IMAX Corporation also stated that they have no plans to release the film on home-video, but have released a soundtrack with original songs that are featured. The most recent theater that played the film was the Riverfront Park IMAX Theatre in Spokane, WA in summer of 2016. It's screen-size was 89 by 66 feet, until it was selected for demolition by the city against the IMAX Corporation's wishes. See more »
Simply Spectacular! Don't Miss This Underwater Imax 3D Movie
This documentary, as you can guess from the title, is about fish and sea. Unlike many documentaries, this one doesn't just educate you it also tells you a warming story.
This film has a lot of different things that everyone would love. It has education, geography, comedy, music, fish, culture and many more things everyone would enjoy.
The story begins when a young boy lives on an island in gorgeous Indonesia. What is very unique about the story is that it follows a boat that travels to different islands and takes kids from each on a "floating school" where they dive, play fun games and, of course, learn about fish. When the young boy goes on this boat, he leaves home for a couple months for a wonderful aquatic adventure.
My favorite scene is when they talk about the corals singing and they show different marine species making sounds with music-like voice overs and, the funny thing is, they do it in a chorus-like rhythm. I love it because it's light hearted and funny.
Unlike most new movies, this film was taped on a real film, not digital. This gives more in-depth colors. And, it's shot on Imax film which is ten times larger than 35mm which gives better quality because of the larger frame. Not only that but this film is in 3D as well, together making a spectacular IMAX adventure that make you feel like you're in the movie. The director does a wonderful job as does the narrator. I'm impressed.
This movie is definitely suitable for ages 1 to 18. Younger kids would not understand it completely but they would still enjoy the colors and the music. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars.
