Movie Reviews

Inspector Gadget | On the trail of Doctor Claw | 08/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've only ever seen 3 IMAX films and this is one of them. I was totally blown away by the incredible sound and photography. I had to study every shot because there is so much in it.It's not actually a movie like other IMAX films (such as Across the Sea of Time and T-Rex) but more of a documentary about how we are all islanders and how we live because the sea lives. It was surprisingly effective in this sense. My fave part was the discovery of the new underwater fish and the fish that had, what looked like, thousands of little lights flashing on and off.A scene with a boat fighting waves and crashing back down onto the sea was better than anything in The Perfect Storm. The sound in this particular scene is IN-CRED-IBLE.Whenever you pass by an IMAX check to see whether or not they are showing this masterpiece. You'll love it.The DVD is in DTS/Dolby 5.1 and is in fullscreen"
Best A/V Experience on DVD
R. Sanchez | Thompsonville, IL United States | 12/30/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been watching DVD at home for three years and after watching this one immediately concluded that this was the best audio/visual experience I've had so far from any movie of any genre. In terms of content, sometimes I wish there was a little more science incorporated into this production, but a vital element in science is observation and this movie certainly allows the viewer to do just that. Overall the sound is big and rich, and the music tracks are a perfect match to this incredibly beautiful visual experience. If you are an IMAX fan and don't have this one yet, don't wait any longer."
Just like being there...but with a soundtrack
Dean C. Hernandez | Columbus, Ohio United States | 12/20/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If the ocean and all of its moods fascinate you, then watch this movie. It really is that simple. The music of artist such as Sting gains its greatest impact with visuals like these. Perhaps some of the scenes are not the most exciting and the science may be lacking but, IMAX was not envisioned to take the place of the Discovery Channel or a good book. The beauty of the IMAX format and those who choose to work with it is the awesome clarity and richness of picture it delivers. More than any other feature shot for this medium, The Living Sea delivers on both counts.Maybe this movie is just a well shot travel video with background music by a living music legend but, then again, without an unlimited travel budget and a personal friendship with Sting how could you ever see such a breath taking and consuming experience? Turn off the phone, set aside an hour, and go on a multi-continent diving experience that statisfies the eye, the ear, and the mind."
Beautiful Music and Cinematography
Donna Marie Albano Harrington | Scituate, MA USA | 03/15/2006

"I LOVED this film! If you want to learn about the sea, see it's breathtaking wonders and bathe in wonderous music composed by Sting, "The Living Sea" will take you on this journey. I bought "The Living Sea" music CD as well, and the music is SOOOOOO gorgeous...I listen to it all the time. The music itself is healing, uplifting, carries a great spirit, free like the ocean...each song a masterpiece!

The filming is truly outstanding...clear, crisp, colorful, alive,...magical...! Anything made by MacGillivray Films (this is an OMNIMAX film) will be amazing, truly the finest films I have ever seen in my life....[...]. I am a TRUE FAN!!! Donna Harrington"
