And so it goes, for a magical 40 minutes: underwater footage often startlingly beautiful, made more so by the immediacy of 3D.

If the typical IMAX offering has a handful of unforgettable shots, this one delivers about 50.

Clocking in at 39 minutes, which may be about all the eyes can handle, Deep Sea 3D transports exotic sea species literally to our noses.

4 starsYou can just sink into "Deep Sea 3D," a lovely, lush experience that, believe it or not, blends the grandeur of the deep with the violence of nature and the sad state in which humans have left the oceans.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA) all-too-brief but fascinating look at some of our ocean's irreplaceable treasures.

The Halls have taken an artistic leap beyond their masterful Coral Reef Adventure (2003), stripping away much of the narrative thread and allowing the film to drift to and fro on currents of sheer beauty.

After being in something of a rut for a while, the IMAX 3-D format is back at the top of its game with this fascinating tour of the world's oceans and the bizarre, alien-looking life forms found there.

Forget haunted houses and the mountains of the moon: There's no better environment to show off the wonder of the immersive IMAX 3-D experience than the deep blue sea.

Deep Sea 3D doesn't go any deeper than the ocean floor . . . but that's pretty deep.

IMAX movies, especially in 3-D, are well suited to take you to another world... and what a world it is.

When the photography is this gorgeous and the 3-D is this impressive, you can overlook the overly loose structure.
