  • Yes, the work they're doing is mind-boggling and important, but sometimes the images alone are more than capable of speaking for themselves.

  • That IMAX 3-D cameras have plunged so deep to record an often bizarre array of sea creatures undoubtedly delivers a certain 'wow' factor, but the accompanying commentary is heavier on breathless excitement than solid fact.

  • A master showman's large-format documentary, a movie with great images, great special effects and the sheen of Hollywood often missing in these museum or science-center movies.

  • The experience is so immediate and immersive that you actually feel as if you are swimming with the krill.

  • Here we know only that Cameron and his bright-eyed young scientists (who take turns narrating) are heading to the deeper parts of the Atlantic and Pacific to observe the environment and life-forms down there.

    Im sort of confused after this doc. It didn't amaze me like other ones, but it isn't horrible, because it did present me to different creatures i've never seen before. It just doesn't compare to any of Disneynature's films. Keep in mind that I saw the 48 minute version not the 96 minute one. Overall Rating:48
