Product Description

Fun for the whole family — now brought to life through captivating 3-D!  Journey 80 million years back in time to an age when mighty dinosaurs dominated the land — and an equally astonishing assortment of ferocious creatures swam, hunted, and fought for survival beneath the vast, mysterious prehistoric seas. Stunning, photo-realistic imagery re-creates the perilous underwater realm of two young, dolphin-sized marine reptiles called Dolichorhynchops, or Dollies, and follows their incredible journey through waters ruled by some of the most awesome predators ever to prowl the Earth’s oceans. Interweaving ground-breaking fossil finds from around the globe with cutting-edge computer-generated re-creations, National Geographic’s powerful storytelling immerses you in the life-or-death drama of an age when monsters ruled the seas! With original music by Peter Gabriel and The Footnote, and narrated by Liev Schreiber. Seen originally in IMAX® and other specialty theaters. Includes four pairs of 3-D glasses.

Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure

The program is interesting, informative and well done -- at least the 2D version. The 3D version of the program although it is exactly the same as the 2D version was a disappointment because of the old technology used to create the three dimensional effects. I had expected that from National Geographic the 3D version would have been done using Real 3D which is now the standard used in the cinemas and requiring polarized glasses to view or a near equivalent. Instead, the three dimensional effects are created by using the old red and blue technology which was probably old even in the 50's. The glasses (four pairs of them) are so small that they barely fit a child's face and if you are an adult who also wears glasses then forget it. It was also disconcerting to see things such as cloud clusters that were red on one side and blue on the other. This was probably because the 3D process was not used consistently throughout.

If this DVD is ever reissued in a more modern 3D format, then I would consider buying another copy but for now I would recommend that you purchase the 2D only version which is also available and for a great deal less.

The program it self is short. It's about 45 mins. I don't think it's worth $24. Some places are selling it for $29. For about $16 it's a great blind buy. If you like to learn about sea monsters of ancient times. The 3-d adds to the learning experience too. Kids will love this disc. But again I just don't think it's worth $24 for such a short program.

This movie was in the mediocre range of 3D. Some good out of screen shots to keep you entertained.

HASH(0xa631fac8) out of 5 stars Amazing Home Technology Oct. 12 2009
By a_creative_name - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I first saw this movie in IMAX 3D and was truly impressed with a really good storyline and amazing 3D effects. When I saw this movie was released on Blu-Ray in 3D I was hesitant thinking the 3D at home would be a joke. I was proven otherwise. Even on the comfort of my couch the 3D is amazing. You still get all the feelings of the screen coming to life as well as objects projected so close you feel could be hit by them.

HASH(0xa631fb1c) out of 5 stars True 3D experience! Aug. 16 2009
By Alexandre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Stunning, amazing, informative and spectacular! Comes with 4 pairs of cardboard glasses. Do NOT use those (they're OK, but not great though!), Get plastic ones instead! Better fit, better view! Turn all your lights off, watch that DVD at night! It'll take your breath away! I really enjoyed it! Highly recommend!

HASH(0xa631fdf8) out of 5 stars NOT New Technology 3D...... Sept. 14 2010

If you like 3D in Blue/Red colored glasses, this is for you. This is NOT for use in the new 3D movie technology (i.e. Samsung LED TV's).

HASH(0xa631fcf0) out of 5 stars Not for your Samsung or other 3D TV Sept. 19 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I purchased the blu-ray version thinking that this would play perfectly on my new 50in Samsung 3d TV . Unfortunatley this turned out to be one of those red-blue 3D movies where you'd need to see it with the cardboard supplied glasses. The 3D effects are outdated and its just not that great after seeing some of the later movies with 3D effects.

Actually shame on me for not reading the product details before buying it.

but even with the supplied blue-red glasses on, the 3D effects are mediocre. The documentary is way too short and for the price i paid , it definitely feels like a rip-off.

Be very careful as this DVD is totally misleading its potential buyer.
When they say it is a 3D movie in fact it is an Anaglyph red and blue 3D dvd and not a true
polarized 3D hence super low quality.

So do not get fooled that those super big 3D letters as this is not a true 3D movie.

Very misleading and disappointing from a company like National Geo to make use of a hype
for 3D product and lying big time to the product they are selling.
