Under the Sea

 (2009)

Under the Sea Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Imagine a world of incredible color and beauty. Of crabs wearing jellyfish for hats. Of fish disguised as frogs, stones and shag carpets. Of a kaleidoscope of underwater life. Now, go explore it! The makers of Deep Sea and Into the Deep take you into tropical waters alive with adventure: the Great Barrier Reef and other South Pacific realms.

Under the Sea Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Video reviews of IMAX titles tend to boil down to "beautiful photography, haphazard encode." However, the Blu-ray edition of Under the Sea is an entirely different beast. Bubbling to the surface with a magnificent 1080p/VC-1 transfer, Hall's forty-minute film is blessed with a stunning source and a proficient presentation. The brilliant blues of the sea, the dark shadows of the ocean floor, and the blazing hues of the tangled coral beds are a sight to behold. Contrast is strong and stable, and detail is incredibly revealing. Count the delicate scales on the tiniest fish, trace the spindly veins of an underwater garden, look closely as stones scatter across the back of a reclusive stingray, watch carefully as a sea lion's whiskers bend and bristle. The image is so crisp, Hall's startling footage so cleanly rendered, that it often borders on breathtaking. Better still, I didn't detect any significant artifacting, ringing, crush, or aliasing, and banding -- ever the bane of undersea documentary transfers -- only appears on a handful of brief occasions, will be overlooked by all but the most ardent videophiles, and vanishes long before it becomes a distraction. In fact, faint, intermittent flickering is the sole issue that holds the presentation back from perfection (and even that may be inherent to the source). As it stands, I can't imagine anyone will be remotely disappointed with the results.


Under the Sea Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

But wait, there's more! Under the Sea boasts an immersive DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track; one that does justice to Hall's lively soundscape, New Guinea and Indonesia's enveloping waves, and Micky Erbe and Maribeth Solomon's diverse music. As expected, Jim Carrey's crystal clear, perfectly prioritized narration pulls the soundfield forward, sometimes bringing the sonic proceedings to a two-dimensional halt. But every time he finishes a sentence, the waters of the Indo-Pacific rush to fill each speaker. LFE output is hearty and aggressive, the rear channels are swimming with activity (both organic and orchestral), pans are fluid, and directionality is as playful as Carrey's tone. While some aspects of Hall's sound design prove to be annoying, the studio's technical mix rarely falters, lending legitimate power and presence to a short documentary that, just last year, would have been slapped with a standard Dolby Digital track. Fans will be most pleased. Kudos, Warner.
