Aliens of the Deep | 2005 | G | - 1.1.0

Director James Cameron follows marine biologists and other scientists on an undersea expedition in extremely deep waters around the Mid-Ocean Ridge, a submerged mountain range that winds 46,000 miles around the globe. There, in total darkness they find vents on the ocean floor that spew clouds of super-heated water and abundant life -- huge worms, albino crustaceans, and large numbers of blind shrimp. Presented in IMAX 3D, the documentary speculates that life on other planets may resemble these strange creatures. Directed by Cameron & Steven Quale. [0:47]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A woman wears a short and low-cut top that reveals cleavage and bare abdomen, while dancing with a large crowd around her. A man is bare-chested in a swimsuit.

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - In a startling jump scene, a large squid-looking creature swims close to the camera and very fast, and in 3D seems to be swimming straight for the audience. A sub gets too close to a very hot water plume and the people inside talk about the water being so hot that it could melt the glass of the sub. A moon of Jupiter has violent volcanic eruptions. A boy eats a messy hamburger (we see goo on his face).

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Natural phenomena, marine biology, exploring the unknown, mystery, extraterrestrials, astrobiology, life on other worlds, chemosynthesis, symbiosis.
MESSAGE - Life on other planets may resemble terrestrial deep-sea creatures, and life can thrive almost anywhere. Science is fun and scientific exploration is like a muscle: you have to exercise it to keep it strong.
CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
