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.

Audience Reviews for Coral Reef Adventure

"We do not inherit the Earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children."

If the DVD cover of this film doesn't sell you, you probably won't enjoy the flick. It really is just pretty Coral Reef scenery with a "Save the Earth" message. I particularly enjoyed it because it hits all the right chords for me: visuals, music, marine biology, etc.


Fascinating, thought provoking and very interesting. Beautifully photographed, a lot of effort went into it and it shows. My only gripe is the personal dramatics, they don?t seem to fit with the nature of the documentary.
