Critic Reviews for Coral Reef Adventure
The panoramic views of various island locations are, of course, gorgeous, and inspire a kind of giddy vertigo.
Overall, the producers do a nice job balancing beautiful scenery with a serious message.
Part amusement park ride, part public service announcement, Coral Reef Adventure is most effective when doing what Imax movies do best: transporting audiences to unusual places they might not otherwise visit.
Remarkable undersea footage, most of it starring fish and coral so unusually shaped and brightly colored that one has to remind oneself that they're real.
A film for all who care about the world their children and grandchildren will inherit.
Educational and stimulating, hopefully encouraging environmental support for the world's endangered reefs.
Lots of very pretty images with lots of dazzling colors. There is also an element of science. The trouble is, science and environmentalism don't mix that well.
You won't find Nemo. But you'll find zillions of other creatures amazing in their color, fragility and rarity.
A truly magical experience, Coral Reef Adventure entices us deep into the ocean's wonderland, dazzling us by the wonders of life beneath the surface.
Perfectly balances entertainment and nature-science elements in its brisk and sometimes thrilling 46 minutes.
Explores coral reefs around the Pacific Ocean with a dazzling and sometimes irritating variety of computer graphics, brilliant nature photography and jarring sound effects straight out of Finding Nemo.
As beautiful as it often is to watch, Coral Reef Adventure ultimately comes off as a bit too kid-friendly and faux-inspirational, which is kind of a drag.
Can be enjoyed simply as a spectacular South Seas travelogue with superb underwater footage. Its environmental warnings are an added and important bonus.
The film favors the scientific over the spectacular (visually speaking).
Coral Reef Adventure is a heavyweight film that fights a good fight on behalf of the world's endangered reefs -- and it lets the pictures do the punching.
The large-frame IMAX camera lends itself beautifully to filming the teeming life on the reefs, making this gorgeous film a must for everyone from junior scientists to grown-up fish lovers.
Color, musical bounce and warm seas lapping on island shores. And just enough science to send you home thinking.
[Fiji diver Rusi Vulakoro and the married couple Howard and Michelle Hall] show us the world they love and make us love it, too.
