Review:

Unlike The Living Sea, its Oscar ®-nominated predecessor, IMAX's Into the Deep confines itself to one location--the Channel Islands off the coast of California. But what a location it is! Directed by Howard Hall ( Island of the Sharks) and narrated by actress Kate Nelligan, this exquisitely shot feature follows a number of the colorful creatures who live among the area's kelp beds as they build their living quarters, fight to protect them, mate, and die. Some of the more notable sequences include the aggressive mating dance of the fiery Garibaldi fish, the arduous molting of a lobster (captured with time-lapse photography), and the sophisticated synchronized movements of a school of silvery Spanish mackerel that sparkle and shine in the sunlight streaming in from above. Colors (especially reds and blues) that really pop, spare and unobtrusive narration, and a playful soundtrack make this fascinating film ideal for repeat viewing. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

From the Back Cover:

Come on in, the water's fine. And full of amazing things. Things like: a hungry starfish loping voraciously across a panicked, living "shag carpet" of prey; a swarming frenzy of opalescent squid who mate, then die; plus things never before caught on film--including sea lions who just might be using kelp stalks as toothbrushes. Kate Nelligan narrates and renowned marine-life filmmaker Howard Hall directs this colorful foray into the kelp forests located off California's Channel Islands. So lights, camera, water. A cast of thousands is ready for its amazing close-up.
