Product Overview

For nearly 200 million years while dinosaurs roamed the Earth, the seas teemed with some of the most awe-inspiring ocean creatures of all time. Sea Monsters, a National Geographic Giant Screen film, is an entertaining journey into prehistoric oceans. Inter-cutting between the animated story and the reenactments of fossil discoveries combine the appeal of Indiana Jones with the CGI that brings these prehistoric monsters to life. Perfect for the whole family.

ReviewSource Variety
Review Things that fly at your face, things that eat other things and things you wouldn't want to meet in 2-D, much less 3-D, are the raison d'etre of giant-screen films. And they all show up in National Geographic's "Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure," which plumbs the ocean depths of the late Cretaceous period to find some truly awesome denizens -- highly unfriendly, computer-generated creatures guaranteed to make one stay on land, or at least think about "Jaws"...The dilemma of the 3-D format is that when things aren't leaping off the screen and into your Diet Coke, the films can seem even flatter than their 2-D cousins...The filmmakers, chiefly helmer Sean Phillips, have actually made the 3-D elements an embellishment to what would have been a fairly riveting drama anyway. The transformation of the earth, the drying up of Kansas, the creation of the continents as we know them and the earth's surface as it now exists, constitute some very exciting moments. Yes, plenty of things fly at your face, but they're not the only things worthy of interest...Production values are superb, with serviceable narration by Liev Schreiber.
