"Deepsea Challenge" will have you skipping to the theater

By Sabrina Hernandez, A.K.A. "The Small Town Critic"

"The Deepsea Challenge" is a documentary on a director. If you like science then I recommend this movie. In my opinion this movie was slow and kind of boring. A director named James Cameron, had a dream of going to the deepest part of the ocean. If you don't know who James Cameron is he is a movie director and he directed big Hollywood movies like "Titanic", "Abyss", "Avatar" and "Terminator". He loved the ocean more than he loved directing movies.

"Deep-sea Challenge" follows James Cameron and his quest to reach the bottom of the Mariana Trench, which is the deepest part of the ocean and the deepest location on Earth, wants to see what its about and explore whats under there. James Cameron wanted to do scientific data on the Mariana Trench. He didn't want to just touch the bottom of the ocean and float back up because he knows that possible, he wanted to do more than that, he wanted to make history.

In the documentary, James Cameron went to the bottom of the ocean to study the ocean trenches. This documentary was made to show you that anything is possible. This movie helped educate the viewers because now they know how things are formed. he showed the audience how he and his crew built that mini submarine and how he went 36,070 feet under water, down to explore the Mariana Trench

What I did like about this movie is all the cool things James Cameron did under water and how they built that mini submarine and how when his friend lost his life, he didn't stop and give up, he still went with his plan and made it even better. That's how you know James Cameron is strong and will never give up. my favorite part of this movie when it showed how he directed his movies. What I didn't like is when he would start complaining that the mini submarine is going to work.

The lessons I learned from this movie is that nothing is impossible and never give up on what you want to do and never give up on your dreams. I believed others learned this lesson as well because James Cameron never stopped and kept going. Another lesson i have learned from this film is just because you have on career or job doesn't mean you can't do something on the side like James Cameron, he is a director but he does ocean exploring on the side and i believe other noticed that lesson as well.

When I saw this film, I knew I wasn't going to be as interested in this movie because I'm not a big fan of science. But i knew people who are big fans and loved science would like this movie because of all of the cool science experiments James Cameron does. I would not recommend this to people who aren't big fans of science because then would have wasted their money when they could have watched another movie they liked instead. The MPAA rating of this movie is PG. My final word on this film would be good but something i wouldn't watch again.
