This blend of computer-animation and live actors-as-paleontologists recreations makes for an educating and kid-pleasing trip back to the age of the dinosaurs.

Sea Monsters will undoubtedly bring open-mouthed awe and joy to brainy kids from ages 8 to 108.

Yes, plenty of things fly at your face, but they're not the only things worthy of interest.

If you want to see something that just screams, 'Oh, wow!,' this latest IMAX 3-D feature is better than a lifelong angler's best fish story.

This Imax documentary is not your typical monster movie. It's a computer-animated look back at a time when the world was covered by oceans that were ruled by giant creatures. Think Jurassic Park without the people.

It's great that scientists who have found so many fossils can piece it together in a way that's this entertaining.

I'm not sure why this movie is swimming around at Showcase 53 instead of the IMAX at the Putnam Museum. I can only imagine how fantastic it would be on the IMAX screen.But "Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure," which is presented by National Geographic,

On an entertainment level, this film is a surefire treat for the armchair paleontologist and child alike. It also has the look and feel of a project that was meticulously researched, as befits most National Geographic projects.

This was more storytelling - I would have liked to see a more science-focused documentary style, but I still thought it was pretty interesting.
