Sharks 3D Blu-ray Review:
It's hard to believe anyone could possibly make a program about sharks boring but the lack of any excitement/action, good camera angles or informational content is what you can expect from this presentation.
First off, it seems like it is targeted at probably pre-schoolers (or very young children) and is narrated by a sea turtle. It provides minimal actual information about sharks and bounces around quite a bit. This is a shark, I'm a turtle, this is a ray and that's a sea lion... etc about as educational (and exciting) as an aquarium screen saver. But I guess if parents want a program they don't have to worry about their children seeing things getting shredded by swarms of sharks in a feeding frenzy (there was only one very brief scene), then this is pretty tame on all levels and may help serve that purpose.
With that being said, the picture quality I found to be quite murky and really seemed washed out, lacked definition and none of the images really popped or impressed from a visual perspective, considering the IMAX 3D banner across the cover, I felt it was not up to par with other titles I have seen. I understand that underwater filming has a great many challenges and this presentation seemed to suffer from them all.Read more ›

This is the ultimate 3D video. It was impossible to get at one time. Stores used this DVD to demo their 3D TVs.
