"Stunning, amazing, informative and spectacular! Comes with 4 pairs of cardboard glasses. Do NOT use those (they're OK, but not great though!), Get plastic ones instead! Better fit, better view! Turn all your lights off, watch that DVD at night! It'll take your breath away! I really enjoyed it! Highly recommend!"

"I first saw this movie in IMAX 3D and was truly impressed with a really good storyline and amazing 3D effects. When I saw this movie was released on Blu-Ray in 3D I was hesitant thinking the 3D at home would be a joke. I was proven otherwise. Even on the comfort of my couch the 3D is amazing. You still get all the feelings of the screen coming to life as well as objects projected so close you feel could be hit by them."
Not as good as the BBC series

"I got this because I loved the BBC series Walking with Dinosaurs. However, National Geographic: Sea Monsters - A Prehistoric Adventure (In 3-D) [Blu-ray] isn't quite as good as that series. Rather, it features clips of paleontologists digging for fossils, with scenes of the CG sea monsters interspliced. As such, it isn't as entertaining or exciting as the BBC series, which shows just the dinosaurs. If you want a great series on prehistoric sea monsters, check out BBC's Chased By Dinosaurs, which in addition to dinosaurs has a mini-series featuring sea monsters that is much longer than National Geographic: Sea Monsters - A Prehistoric Adventure (In 3-D) [Blu-ray]. In the series, Nigel Marvin chases, and in turn is chased by, sea monsters from a variety of different time periods. It's both more entertaining and educational."

"Got this movie because of the reviews and my love of 3-D on my HD TV. First, the glasses had the red and blue reversed, making them unusable, but when viewing this mess, with glasses I had, there was no part of the experience that came even close to being 3-D. Unless I got a very bad copy, this was as dull in content as I would ever wish to experience, so the only thing that could possibly have saved it would have been spectacular 3-D. National Geographic has really gone way down if they consider this entertainment, and as far as the other reviewers go...well! Maybe I'm not as easily entertained as they are! Amazon, as usual, allowed me to return it."
