Canadian documentary filmmaker Stephen Low directs the IMAX movie Volcanoes of the Deep Sea, with Titanic director James Cameron as the executive producer. During its brief 40-minute running time, the film starts out with a 1977 expedition to find life at the bottom of the sea. At depths as low as 10,000 feet, the discovery proved the existence of underwater volcanoes and the plant life they help sustain. Using the deep-sea diving vehicle known as Alvin, the filmmakers capture large-format film

Throws some spectacular and previously unseen images onto the giant Imax screen, but it stitches them together with a sometimes confusing narrative that only distracts from the fascinating undersea world.
As IMAX nature films go, this is one of the more absorbing ones.
The type of IMAX film that titillates the imagination, and dredges up the most basic and important question we can ask ourselves: What is life?
With the use of tasteful narration, stunning visuals and the occasional computer-generated sequence, this film is a must-see for those who think truth is stranger than fiction.
Good fun for the science geek in all of us. And if you have no science geek in you, feel free to just sit back and feast your eyes on the craziest aquarium you ever will see.
The uniqueness of the objects we encounter will make the visit valuable for anyone with curiosity about the world's most remote places.
Once again, the IMAX camera takes you on a journey to a place that most of us will never get to experience.
An incredible robot's-eye view of the adventures of Alvin, a vehicle that is essentially a backwards space probe.
