Imax-Deep Sea (2006)
Director: Howard Hall
Narrated by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet.
|Dive in! A sea full of wonders awaits. Famed oceanic filmmaker Howard Hall (Into the Deep) guides this immersive adventure that lets you swim alongside some of the most exotic creatures of the planet. Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet provide the narration. And an unusual array of finned and scaled stars are ready to steal every scene. Among them: Green Sea Turtles who gather off Kona so that Surgeonfish can strip harmful algae from their shells...an ominous, predatory Humboldt Squid that changes color four times per second like a flashing strobe light...an underdog Mantis Shrimp, whose claws have the speed of a 22-caliber bullet, in battle against a hungry octopus (the shrimp wins!). So many creatures. So many amazing stories. Sea them all.|
Editor's NoteThe wondrous denizens of the diverse marine habitat known as a coral reef are the subject matter of Howard Hill's DEEP SEA 3-D (originally an IMAX presentation). Exploring the reefs throughout the Pacific, Hill's cameras capture a rare close-up glimpse of turtles, shrimp, scallops, sharks, eels, starfish, jellyfish, octopuses, and much more. Thematically, the film examines the balance of life and symbiosis between these creatures. There are the hunters and the hunted, yet there is always another species that keeps the hunters in check, too. Similarly, some species of smaller fish eat by feeding on sea material that collects on some larger fish, which also cleans the larger fish's scales. The continued and necessary persistence of this activity is quite important to the collective survival of the animals, the reef and, indeed, all of humanity. Narrated almost conversationally by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, DEEP SEA 3-D is a thrilling, intimate, and educational look at the unknown depths of the world underwater; enjoyable for kids and adults of any age.
