Movie Reviews

Beautiful sceneries.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Forget about all those special effects movies. If you really want to impress with your video-equipment, buy this DVD. You have to see it to believe it. I only had one gripe with this DVD, there is no option to turn off the commentary. I think it would be a great idea if they had an option to just listen to the music and watch the pictures. So I just turn off the sound, and put on a nice CD."

"I bought this DVD because of our love of sea life and vast experience diving and snorkeling. I was sure that since it had been an IMAX movie that it would be a superior view. I was wrong. This DVD was mediocre at best. There was not enough ocean life in this film, and the commentary was less than scintillating. Better off ordering the Dolphin's IMAX which lived up to its IMAX reputation."

"Not enough wildlife footage,boring commentator."
Great showcase of poor diving, reef destruction by "experts"

"The absolute worst reef documentary I've ever seen. As short as it is, a lot of time is wasted on silly pretentious landside footage. The main feature of the program is poorly lit underwater footage showcasing Ron and Valerie destroying coral and harassing marine life while exhibiting sloppy, careless diving skills. The university of Minnesota should be embarrassed to put their name on this. Unbelievable! To top it off, we're expected to sit through not one, but TWO obligatory "shark shock" scenes. During the stupid "shark shock," be sure to have the remote handy to turn the thundering noise down or brace yourself for a headache."
