Under the Sea 3D at BFI IMAX

Fergal Hanks and Edward Spash

Under the Sea 3D is a new IMAX film shot with IMAX cameras on the coral reefs around Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

It opens at the BFI IMAX cinema in Waterloo just in time for half term.

The film studies various sea creatures such as the garden ells and cutlet fish. The information about coral reefs and the fish that live there. There is also good information about how global warming will affect the sea life. The film is taken from the view point of a scuba diver. From this view point the coral stretches beautifully ahead while various fish swim around going along with their lives.

The format is informative and interesting following one creature at a time while still flowing well. Jim Carrey narrates well and the image clarity is amazing. The 3D brings the experience to life as it makes you feel like you are the centre of attention. The sound is immense and the last touch in transporting you to the Pacific.
