This is the fourth Imax underwater excursion, and the second in 3-D, and it may just be the best yet.

Under the Sea 3D is one of the best of the genre. If it doesn't serve oysters, per se, this submarine wonder offers marvels in abundance.

The visuals are intimate and startling, comparable only to viewing a fantastic aquarium, and the aquarium is sitting in your lap.

The images are impressive, and include shots of some cuttlefish 'hey-hey' cleverly set to the song Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps (the theme song for the Britcom Coupling).

Runtime is a brisk, never boring 40 minutes and [Howard] Hall and company dish up a visual feast that is as close to being there than, well, being there.

This is a raw, brutal arena of cold-eyed predators chomping the weakest and inexpressibly ugly beings that have evolved so as to be disturbingly well camouflaged, utterly invisible until they make a deadly lunge at some poor vulnerable little fishy.

Entertaining, beautifully shot undersea documentary with stunning 3D effects and a worthy environmental message, this is exactly like deep sea diving only without all that tedious faffing about with wetsuits and diving equipment.

This is one of the few 3-D endeavors that really uses the format properly. At times it feels like the fish are swimming right at you!

Here to inspire awe and depression with a vast universe of marine life that, barring possible ecological disaster, will be here eons after we're gone.

The tone is optimistic that these amazing creatures can be saved, and the message that the ocean ecology is worth preserving is delivered without preaching.

In addition to the incredible visuals (marred once or twice by a clunky editing decision), the sound picks up the movement of water from a cuttlefish fin and the sound of fish eating off the ocean floor.

After 40 minutes behind 3-D glasses watching rare aquatic creatures, why bother with airline tickets and scuba gear?

It's that kind of detail that makes a the film such an immersive experience. An educational one, too.

The extraordinary images compensat[e] for its lack of structure, less than stellar narration and musical missteps.

Carrey remains an acquired taste but Under The Sea is a fine example of the 3D form and Hall's mastery of it.
