Movie Info

Stunning photo-realistic computer-generated animation transports audiences back to the Late Cretaceous, when a great inland ocean divided North America in two. The film will follow a curious and adventurous dolichorynchops (familiarly known as a 'dolly') as she travels through life's stages, experiencing the world from her spot near the bottom of the food chain. Along the way, she'll encounter long-necked pleisosaurs, giant turtles, enormous fish, ferocious flippered crocs, fierce sharks, and the most dangerous sea monsters of all, the mosasaurs.more

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.

Audience Reviews for Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure


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

I didn't see all of it, so this review may be a little off. I saw a 15 minute version at Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, where the seats vibrated, water splashed at you and it poked your back. Thankfully, I saw the "back-poker," so I had my back away from the seat. The 3-d imagery was absolutely stunning, and the vibrating seats made me feel like I was in the movie. But the movie was... i don't know. See, all this stuff around you made it feel so cool, that I had NO CLUE about what was going on. And I know this was a "4-D Experience" and all, and it was 15 minutes long, but it followed one story, I know that. Overall, I just wished I'd skipped it and gone explore the aquarium, but sadly, I was with a school group. If your going to see a 4-D thing like this, go see it in Disney World. That stuff is cool.
