The film received 95 percent positive reviews from the tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes. That's an almost perfect score and Under the Sea received comments like, "The footage is spectacular, the colors electric, the life aquatic trippier than anything you have ever seen..."
About.com said, "Under the Sea offers a uniquely inspirational and entertaining way to explore the beauty and natural wonder of the oceans."
Blu-ray.com reviewed the blu-ray version of Under the Sea and said that this film is "bubbling to the surface with a magnificent 1080p/VC-1 transfer...blessed with a stunning source and a proficient presentation...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." They said this is a film worth buying on blu-ray.
With regard to the 3D version of Under the Sea, Film Journal International said that, the 3D version makes you feel like the animals are right there in your lap and that children are often seen trying to pet the screen.
Under the Sea is recommended for children who are six-years old and up. It has scenes that are startling like when one fish eats another or when a creature snaps. Mating habits and global warming and the danger it presents to us all are discussed. These considerations aside, your child must also be old enough to sit through a 40-minute documentary film. In the case of the 3D version, they must be old enough to wear 3D glasses for that length of time.
