Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Some of the photography is quite impressive. And the movie certainly doesn't have the 'fearsome denizen of the deep' tone usually found in movies about sharks."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"It's a graceful, menacing view into of this animal and its breathtaking underworld of blue."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"It's a spark of passion in an otherwise distracted feature -- an entertaining, enlightening picture, but not quite the sharkapalooza promised."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"The amazing visuals are what make this movie worth a trip to the nearest IMAX; this is some of the finest use of 3D technology we've seen."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"...places as much importance on information as it does on visual spectacle."
‑ Josh Larsen, Sun Publications (Chicago, IL)
"In this dazzling follow-up to Ocean Wonderland 3D, director Jean-Jacques Mantello gets you so close to these creatures you'll feel like fending them off with your hands."
‑ Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News
"A sweet-natured documentary that's impressive in its devotion to the beauty and grandeur of its subject."
‑ Kim Morgan, L.A. Weekly
"Unlike some large-format films, Sharks 3-D was obviously made by someone (Jean-Jacques Mantello) who cares about the way movies work."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"It becomes quickly obvious that Mantello relied too heavily on the potential wow factor of sharks swimming off the screen to entertain the audience."
‑ Piet Levy, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"...nothing compares to mingling with manta rays and socializing with sailfish in their own habitat, but Sharks 3D...does come close."
‑ Blake French,
"Swim in the images, soak up the facts, and if questions about storytelling, consistency, or tone keep nagging, just tell them to float away."
‑ Louise Kennedy, Boston Globe
"a slower-paced and less horrifying look at these creatures"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"A good, respectable piece of underwater filmmaking, but not an especially innovative or entrancing one."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"It manages to convey little real information or inspire action."
‑ Jim Carnes, Sacramento Bee
