A survey of the world's oceans, emphasizing the fact that it's a single interconnected ocean, and the dependence of all life on the ocean. Along the way we spend time with some surfers, with researchers cataloging and tracking whales, a Coast Guard rough weather rescue squad, a deep-ocean research team, and in the Palau Islands, notably at a saltwater lake with an unusual jellyfish variety.Written by

I've only ever seen 3 IMAX films and this is one of them. I was totally blown away by the incredible sound and photography. I had to study every shot because there is so much in it.
It's not actually a movie like other IMAX films (such as Across the Sea of Time and T-Rex) but more of a documentary about how we are all islanders and how we live because the sea lives. It was surprisingly effective in this sense. My fave part was the discovery of the new underwater fish and the fish that had, what looked like, thousands of little lights flashing on and off.
A scene with a boat fighting waves and crashing back down onto the sea was better than anything in The Perfect Storm. The sound in this particular scene is IN-CRED-IBLE.
Whenever you pass by an IMAX check to see whether or not they are showing this masterpiece. You'll love it.
