The footage is spectacular, the colors electric, the life aquatic trippier than anything you'll see in even the most wildly imaginative animated fare.

Even about halfway in, even having settled into your seat with those plastic glasses nestled on your nose, you'll still find yourself dazzled again and again by the impossibly breathtaking beauty of the IMAX adventure Under the Sea 3D.

It's impossible not to be wowed by some of the images in Under the Sea 3D, 
the coolest of which are a nice 
reminder that, even in the age of CG wizardry, the best special effects still come straight from Mother Nature.

The plot may not be much -- amazing creatures live in the sea and if we keep polluting the world a bunch of them will die, so let's stop being such jerks -- but the visuals are absolutely fantastic.

This film is lovely to look at and would make an ideal vehicle for introducing kids to the world of oceanography and marine biology.

Under the Sea 3D is a beautiful reminder that movies can take us to places we've never been before. There are still worlds to conquer out there that don't require the gussying up of CGI effects to hold our attention.

great documentary of the ocean and wonderful narration by Jim Carrey

The 3D effects were pretty good, especially sitting near the front. It was not a climatic type film, just informational.
