'Sanctum: The Real Story' explores the back story of producer/writer and expedition leader Andrew Wight, who teams up with Hollywood director James Cameron to make a 3-D feature film of a cave diving expedition.
DEEPSEA CHALLENGE 3D follows the dramatic story of James Cameron's odyssey as he undertakes an expedition to the deepest part of the ocean. This is a journey of historic proportion and risk. The film will mesmerize viewers of all ages with the thrill of true discovery and the allure of the unknown, of new life forms, and of vistas never before captured on camera - all right here on planet Earth.Written by
On the outside of the sub, attached to one of the arms, was a prototype Rolex Deep Sea "Challenge" Sea-Dweller watch. The watch is cabable of depths of 39,370 ft. Inside the Sub, James was wearing the commercial version of the Deep Sea Sea-Dweller watch, which can go to 12,800 ft. See more »
Good movie that takes you deep into the waters for a great adventure.
If you're looking to go on an expedition but don't want to leave your couch, then James Cameron's "Deepsea Challenge" is the movie for you. It is about Cameron's journey as he builds a submarine to help him explore and research the deep sea ocean floor. It is a majestic science-filled journey that displays some great cinematic shots.
"Deepsea Challenge" follows James Cameron and his quest to reach the deepest part of the ocean and discover and collect scientific data. In 2009, Cameron started his plan to reach the deepest part of the sea. James did his final dive in his submarine, "The Challenger", located near the Mariana Trench.
"Deepsea Challenge" is full of underwater science. It talks about having to build a submarine for Cameron to dive in that will be able to withstand the pressure of the deep dives. If they do this wrong or mess up at all it could potentially put Cameron's life on the line. It also talks about deep ocean trenches. Cameron takes a dive into the deepest part of the ocean called the Mariana Trench. The trench is a result of the bigger, denser, Pacific plate colliding with the smaller less dense Mariana plate and is subducted under forming the trench. This is a great movie to watch if you are looking to learn about diving in the ocean and also about trenches.
This movie has a lot of ups and downs, more ups than downs, and one of those many ups is its scenery. Its film work is amazing and some of the scenes they capture make it feel as if you are there in the submarine with Cameron. Every time Cameron is in the sub descending deeper and deeper into the waters it looks so real it almost makes you feel as if you are there with him in the submarine. I watched this movie in my Earth Science class on a screen so I can only imagine if this was viewed in Imax when it released. One of the few downs is that if you aren't into science or the ocean this probably isn't the movie for you. I'm not a big fan of science and the movie seemed to drag a bit but the scenery makes up for it. One of the best scenes is when they show Cameron diving to the Titanic and they also show him diving to another sunken ship.
This movie is full of science but it also teaches another very important lesson. It talks about Cameron dreaming of exploring the ocean as a young boy. He worked hard and stuck to his goals and dreams and was able to achieve it. This shows that you can be whatever you want to be and you can do whatever you want to do as long as you set your mind to it and work hard enough.
If you enjoy the ocean and science, then this is the perfect movie for you. It goes along on a great adventure and teaches you a bit about the ocean. If you are the type of person that likes up- tempo action-filled movies, then you shouldn't watch this movie. This movie is rated PG. I think this is a good film as it takes you on an adventure that show you some amazing underwater shots.
I would rate this movie a *** out of *****.
