Plot: Academy Award®-winning director James Cameron combines his talents as a filmmaker with his passion for exploration in all forms in "Aliens of the Deep," an Earthship Production presented in IMAX® 3-D by Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media. Inspired by concepts from the field of astrobiology—the study of life on other worlds—Cameron explores the idea that the bizarre creatures living in the extreme environments found on the ocean floor might provide a blueprint for what life is like elsewhere in the universe. The director is joined in the journey by a team of young marine biologists and NASA researchers who share his interests and excitement as they consider the correlation between life under water and the life we may one day find in outer space.

"Aliens of the Deep" presents the dramatic and visually stunning highlights of a series of expeditions to deep-ocean hydrothermal vents, where super-heated, mineral-charged water gives life to some of the strangest animals on Earth—6-foot-tall worms with blood-red plumes, blind white crabs, and an astonishing biomass of white shrimp, all competing to find just the right location in the flow of near-boiling water. This adventure brings the audience face to face with what it might be like to travel far into space and encounter life on

external link..."Aliens of the Deep" is not a scientific documentary so much as a journey to an alien world, and basically what we want to do is peer out the portholes along with the explorers. 3/4

external link...Aliens of the Deep stands on its own merits, and is definitely worth the price of admission. Even if you have to wear the stupid glasses. 3.5/5
--Annette Cardwell (

external link...“Aliens of the Deep” can only be comfortably recommended to deep-sea students and hard-core Cameron buffs. 3/5
--Peter Sobczynski (

external linkCameron's showmanship and his on-screen appearances make his documentaries far livelier than your usual IMAX nature documentary, and this one is no exception. 3/4
--Lou Lumenick (New York Post)

external linkIt's all fascinating, and it makes you wish the film lasted longer than 47 minutes. B-
--Robert Denerstein

external link..."Aliens of the Deep" is a major treat for the eyes. 4/4
