Deep Sea

 (2006)

Deep Sea Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

'Deep Sea" - Dive in! A sea full of wonders awaits. Famed oceanic filmmaker Howard Hall (Into the Deep) guides this immersive adventure that lets you swim alongside some of the most exotic creatures of the planet. Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet provide the narration. And an unusual array of finned and scaled stars are ready to steal every scene. Among them: Green Sea Turtles who gather off Kona so that Surgeonfish can strip harmful algae from their shells...an ominous, predatory Humboldt Squid that changes color four times per second like a flashing strobe light...an underdog Mantis Shrimp, whose claws have the speed of a 22-caliber bullet, in battle against a hungry octopus (the shrimp wins!). So many creatures. So many amazing stories. Sea them all.

'Into the Deep' - Filmed off the coast of Southern California, this fascinating film journeys to an enchanting underwater world of swaying kelp forests and glowing corals. Swim nose to nose with colorful garibaldi, starfish and sharks, play tag with sea lions, and observe the rarely-seen behavior of the creatures of the eternal undersea night.

For more about Deep Sea and the Deep Sea Blu-ray release, see Deep Sea Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Deep Sea Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Hall's photography isn't the only gorgeous aspect of this Blu-ray release. Warner has produced a surprisingly remarkable 1080p/VC-1 transfer that renders every scale, tentacle, and pedicellariae (look that one up!) Deep Sea's marine animals have on display. The documentary's palette is intense and vibrant, relying on crisp contrast and bold primaries to fill the screen with a daunting array of colors. While black levels are a tad inconsistent at times (specifically during a pair of quick scenes involving hundreds of jellyfish), the picture possesses convincing dimensionality and well-resolved shadows. Detail is impressive too, producing sharp object definition and refined textures without the help of any glaring edge enhancement. The film's starfish and octopi are a stunning sight to behold, its coral reveal every crevice of their skeletal exteriors, and its tiniest fish are visible amongst a variety of complex rock formations. A handful of soft shots are a slight distraction, but such shortcomings are the product of the original film rather than the technical transfer.

My only gripe is that faint artifacting and banding occasionally appear in the background, briefly drawing attention away from the otherwise proficient presentation. Thankfully, it doesn't develop into a pressing issue and rarely detracts from the overall impact of the picture. While I expected Warner's transfer to disappoint and underwhelm in more than one regard -- let's be honest, IMAX documentaries aren't typically the most reliable releases when it comes to AV quality -- Deep Sea looks great.


Deep Sea Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Here's another welcome surprise: the Blu-ray edition of Deep Sea overcomes the technical limitations of its standard Dolby Digital 5.1 surround presentation and delivers a more rousing and involving sonic experience than most other nature documentaries I've reviewed. It all comes down to Hall's careful integration of lively sound effects, underwater ambience, and Danny Elfman's musical score. Documentary purists may object to the use of post-production effects to enhance the visceral qualities of the on-screen imagery, but scraping shells, grinding teeth, squealing scallops, and snapping claws add another dimension to an already immersive soundfield. Not only did my son adore the frequently amusing cries and crunches, I enjoyed listening to the efficiently-prioritized effects almost as much as I did studying the creatures they accompanied. Better still, the track's moderately-active rear soundstage relies on surging currents and sloshing topside waves to envelop the listener in its ever-changing oceanic world. Elfman's score completes the puzzle -- subdued enough to give the rest of the soundscape its appropriate dues, but present enough to grace darting fish and lunging squid with even more personality. His delicate instrumentation is light-footed and precise, and his abundent bass beats are solid and earthy.

Oh yeah, did I mention that Depp and Winslet sound wonderful? Their narration may not be as crisp or nuanced as the latest, greatest lossless presentation on the block, but it comes close. All things considered, Warner's use of a standard Dolby Digital audio mix is the lone downside to this package. I can't help but wonder how much of a difference a TrueHD track would have made.
