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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"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."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"...what it may lack in visual texture is made up for by the nifty 3-D effects."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"I'm not sure why this movie is swimming around at Showcase 53 instead of the IMAX at the Putnam Museum. I can only imagine how fantastic it would be on the IMAX screen.But "Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure," which is presented by National Geographic,"
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"Sea Monsters will undoubtedly bring open-mouthed awe and joy to brainy kids from ages 8 to 108."
‑ Erin Meister, Boston Globe
"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."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Destined to be a staple of the large-format repertoire."
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"On an entertainment level, this film is a surefire treat for the armchair paleontologist and child alike. It also has the look and feel of a project that was meticulously researched, as befits most National Geographic projects."
‑ Carla Meyer, Sacramento Bee
"Yes, plenty of things fly at your face, but they're not the only things worthy of interest."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Very cool."
‑ Michael Esposito, Chicago Tribune
"It's great that scientists who have found so many fossils can piece it together in a way that's this entertaining."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
