Under the Sea 3D (2009)
Now playing on the big, big screen: Under the Sea 3D, an IMAX flick that shows little-known sea creatures much larger than life and in all their three-dimensional glory. Filmmakers Howard and Michele Hall shot gorgeous -- and sometimes devastating -- footage of marine life in the teeming waters around Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and Australia. IMAX, a Canadian company, recruited fellow Canuck Jim Carrey to narrate.
Sequences include encounters with the highly venomous stonefish, playful sea lions, a yet-to-be-named shark species, and the captivating leafy sea dragon. A key message is how terribly global warming will damage the oceans' living things.
