Movie reviewers, technology fans and market analysts are raving about Under Water in 3D.

The movie is a 40-minute long documentary exploring the marine life of the South Pacific, incuding waters off of the Australian coast, the Great Barrier Reef and Papa New Guinea. It is director Howard Hall''s follow up to Into the Deep (1994) and Deep Sea 3D (2006).

The technical challenges of the project are emphasized by the fact that Hall and his producer wife used a 1,300-pound IMAX 3D camera whose film requires reloading every three minutes.

In total, the couple spent 350 hours underwater and produced almost 10 hours of footage for the 40 minutes long film.

Still, it was worth it as the movie met with universal praise. Reviewers, such as Peter Rainer, have stressed that the quality of the images make the experience startlingly life-like.

"This film comes about as close to snorkeling beneath the Southern Hemisphere as you are likely to get without diving equipment," he wrote in The Christian Science Monitor.

The movie''s quality has also sent market analysts - in dire need of good news lately - into an optimistic territory. According to the Associated Press, they believe that Imax Corp. will benefit from the popularity of the film which is likely to boost its first-quarter results.
