Recently I visited the Imax 3D theater in the Denver Museum of Nature and Science to see the film Great White Shark. This forty-minute movie is about the true story of sharks, and how maybe they aren’t the monsters we think they are. The film has been out for a couple months already, but its screen time wraps up at the end of October so if you would like to see it, buy tickets fast. As I mentioned, this documentary is in 3D. There are no particularly scary or bloody scenes, but if you have a family member who greatly fears sharks this may not be the movie for them. However if they want to be brave, they may walk out of the theater with a changed opinion on this beautiful animal.
Great White Shark is a documentary featuring professional free divers and shark researchers. It is filmed off the coast of a Mexican island called Guadalupe, South Africa, and New Zealand to inform the viewer of the newest discoveries about sharks. The film teaches the audience of the graceful power of the shark and how it faces extinction. It also shows how people all over the world are working to protect this majesty of the ocean on its lengthy journeys across the globe. I was able to get more background information on the shark before I saw it and earlier this past summer I actually met one of the researchers featured in the film, but despite that I learned more from this film than I could possibly imagine.
I would recommend this movie to anyone interested in sharks. But you don’t have to know anything about these animals before seeing the film. It will tell you everything there is to know about them, and it will leave the viewers awestruck and in disbelief of how our unnecessary fear for sharks is coming purely out of our imaginations.
