As a half-century scuba diver who has been diving Fiji, the Great Barrier Reef, Moorea and Tiputa Pass in Rangiroa over the years, I can vouch for the authenticity and genuine beauty of this splendid documentary, as well as for the unfortunate reality of the threats to these areas. In particular, we have been diving Fiji’s Bligh Waters for years, most often with Rusi Vulakoro (also an excellent singer) who appears prominently in this production. Rusi and Jean-Michel Cousteau demonstrate some of what they are doing to preserve this paradise.

The McGillivray-Freeman production and Michele and photography is top notch, and our friends Rob and Cat, owners of the liveaboard dive boat NAI’A used for the filming, guided Howard and Michele Hall to all our favorite sites – their cinematography is superb, in spite of the major problems faced by using the huge and unwieldy IMAX system. Those interested in scuba diving, some of the world’s best dive spots and the state of the ocean will love this DVD – and come away convinced we should never have called this planet, 70.78% of which is covered by the world’s oceans and water, “Earth.”

I just ordered this from Amazon because of the selling price of $11.00 free shipping. I’m SO glad I took the chance. This is an AMAZING blu-ray disc. The quality of the sound is as good, if not better, than the picture quality. Fantastic underwater photography will have you in awe. If you’re into this sort of thing, this is a MUST have for your blu-ray collection.

This was disappointing because the potential was there to do some wonderful work. Like many of these films, it becomes about the people making the film instead of the fascinating subject it pretends to show. I, personnaly, think there should be as little as possible human depiction in these nature films. If I am buying a film on Coral Reef, I do not want to see diving gear, boats, people plotting courses etc…

since having HD TV and Blu-Ray player. This is the DVD I have been looking for.

This DVD really makes 1080P outstanding in color and sharpness. I have had Planet Earth for sometime which is also very good HD. Coral Reef really is a good show to

let one know just how good Blu-Ray HD is.

This is the DVD I show to new viewers to Blu-Ray HD.

There’s not too much adventure here despite the title. There is one dangerous deep dive, but it is visually a dud. The rest of the disk is beautifully photographed and the images are sharp and clear. The problem is with the writing and editing and what has gone into the production. There are too many people and not enough reef. It should have been titled Fiji adventure, because that is where most of it is filmed, with a bit in Australia and Tahiti. That represents a miniscule portion of the world’s reefs. Yet even these are not described and identified in much detail. The narrative is annoyingly preachy about global warming and the soundtrack is improbably Crosby, Stills, and Nash, though what they have to do with scuba diving is never explained. As a documentary it is also Imax-short, and does not rise at all above what you can see on Nature or National Geographic every week on TV. It is unbelievably stated that this production cost $10 million, though where it went is not evident. You also have to wonder why on earth the National Science Foundation is funding something like this with tax dollars. I’m increasingly coming to realize that Imax documentaries really fall short when you bring them down to TV, even on a large wide-screen model. This is not something you’re likely to watch more than once so you should save your money and avoid purchasing it.
