Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"And so it goes, for a magical 40 minutes: underwater footage often startlingly beautiful, made more so by the immediacy of 3D."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"In sum: Many creatures are eaten, but this often-impressive movie left me hungry for more."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"4 starsYou can just sink into "Deep Sea 3D," a lovely, lush experience that, believe it or not, blends the grandeur of the deep with the violence of nature and the sad state in which humans have left the oceans."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"The Halls have taken an artistic leap beyond their masterful Coral Reef Adventure (2003), stripping away much of the narrative thread and allowing the film to drift to and fro on currents of sheer beauty."
‑ Arthur Salm, San Diego Union-Tribune
"Even though this film does provide some conventional thrills, what's surprising is how intimate, and almost shiveringly sensitive, it makes the ocean seem"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile

‑ Michael Esposito, Chicago Tribune
" all-too-brief but fascinating look at some of our ocean's irreplaceable treasures."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"After being in something of a rut for a while, the IMAX 3-D format is back at the top of its game with this fascinating tour of the world's oceans and the bizarre, alien-looking life forms found there."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Fancy a spot of scuba diving? Without getting wet? And in the company of Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet?"
‑ David Mattin,
"If the typical IMAX offering has a handful of unforgettable shots, this one delivers about 50."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"Clocking in at 39 minutes, which may be about all the eyes can handle, Deep Sea 3D transports exotic sea species literally to our noses."
‑ Laura Kern, New York Times
"No matter who's talking, the audience's attention will be on the images wrapping themselves around them."
‑ Rex Roberts, Film Journal International
"There is no downtime in the production. You'll spend every moment oohing and aahing at the delicate balance of nature in the gently swaying deep sea."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"Forget haunted houses and the mountains of the moon: There's no better environment to show off the wonder of the immersive IMAX 3-D experience than the deep blue sea."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
