IMAX Under the Sea Blu-Ray+ DVD Combo Pack Review

IMAX Under the Sea Blu-Ray+ DVD Combo Pack Review
 You can own this DVD today

Synopsis: Imagine a world of incredible color and beauty. Of crabs wearing jellyfish for hats. Of fish disguised as frogs, stones and shag carpets. Of a kaleidoscope of life dancing and weaving, floating and darting in an underwater wonderland. Now, go explore it! Howard Hall and his filmmaking team, who brought you Deep Sea and Into the Deep, take you into tropical waters alive with adventure: the Great Barrier Reef and other South Pacific realms.

Narrated by Jim Carrey and featuring astonishing camerawork, this amazing film brings you face to fin with Nature's marvels, from the terrible grandeur (and terrible teeth) of a Great White to the comic antics of a lovestruck cuttlefish. Excitement and fun run deep Under the Sea!

Review: I've seen a number of these underwater nature blu-ray releases.  They're always interesting and beautiful, but they have to try hard to distinguish themselves.  This release scored Jim Carrey as the narrator, which is a great start.  Of course, Carrey isn't cracking jokes, he's very seriously detailing the dangers to the aquatic ecosystem and what is happening with ocean warming and our affect on ocean life.

The 45 minute feature was an IMAX filmed event that is like candy for your HD-tv.   The combo pack features a digital copy and a DVD, so we gave the kids the DVD copy to watch in their room and scratch up, while we keep our nice family blu-ray copy safe and sound.

We recommend this title for anyone interested in nature, homeschoolers or classrooms.  Its a great release with wonderful information and visuals.  The blu-ray takes viewers through five expeditions from Papua New Guinea to Indonesia.
