The Los Angeles Times

Glenn Whipp

The cuttlefish live all of two years. Their lives are over before they know it, as is this too-brief film, which is as intimate and enjoyable as anything Imax has done in 3-D.

Variety

Lael Loewenstein

Gorgeous, informative and as gripping as a shark's jaws, "Under the Sea 3D" reps the apotheosis of the Imax 3-D form. As close as you can get to the feel of deep-sea diving without risking decompression sickness, this superbly mounted item from veteran underwater helmer Howard Hall and his team should score with viewers of all ages.

There are some really spectacular shots, and it's far from being a pretty-pretty view of nature, in the manner of Finding Nemo.

Carrey remains an acquired taste but Under The Sea is a fine example of the 3D form and Hall's mastery of it.

People of any age will be fascinated by the Imax documentary Under the Sea, a riveting look at submarine life around the coast of Australia. I've never experienced such good use of 3D.

Marine life gets vast, luminous close-ups in this beautiful and soothing IMAX documentary, plummily narrated by Jim Carrey.

The effect is like immersing one’s head in a giant aquarium.The close-ups, too, are often breathtaking.

If you have children who might be diverted by 40 minutes of natural wonders, and you can get to an Imax cinema, then Under the Sea 3D (left) is a treat.
