Movie Reviews

First Class Educational Adventure
H.L. Preston | Colorado USA | 11/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Given that they spend a lot of time at the lightless bottom of the ocean exploring "black smoker" geothermal vents, this was visually phenomenal. I heard somewhere that they used a new lighting system, and the color at depth was excellent - the teeming life they found down there was astonishing, and the mystery of the "patterns in the sand cores" was also quite interesting - possibly more so because the actual creatures responsible for the patterns had not, by the end of the movie, been located.

As a professional scientist in another field, I found this riveting - and so did my six-year-old. Can't say that about too many nonfiction films out there! One of the best features is that the film does go into detail, but mixes the narrative detail in with the stunning visuals in such a way that while older viewers are listening to the science as well as looking, the kids are looking at all the cool (well, hot, actually) stuff and may also be listening."
Engaging, awesome experience

"First class adventure beneath the sea at depths and sea floors which are truly an "other" world.....but not. Stunning visual wonders, facts and information about our current world and a wonderful adventure into the amazing world of our earth's past. See it for yourself. Words are pale imitations."
A must have!

"I saw this feature at our local IMAX and as soon as it was released on DVD I had to have it! Volcanoes of the Deep Sea features footage of some VERY cool invertebrates living DEEP under water at hot vents on the sea floor. Ed Harris does a great job narrating. I wish these IMAX features were longer!"

"This... on HDTV... is just like in an IMAX! I'm an earth science teacher, and I can tell you this mesmerized the class. In fact, it's great for life science as well."
