"Deepsea Challenge Review" In this epic documentary, James Cameron takes to the sea in the name of science. James Cameron is known for his work in hit movies such as Avatar, Titanic, and Terminator. In this documentary James Cameron has pulled together an elite group of engineers that share one common goal to reach the deepest part of the ocean, the Mariana trench in a submarine. The documentary "Deepsea Challenge" shows the challenges James Cameron and his team of engineers had to endure while trying to build a submarine way ahead of its time. They had to consider pressure, lack of light and many other challenges while building the submersible. Deepsea challenge focuses on the ocean and how tectonic plates have completely altered the face of the earth. The Mariana Trench, the trench they visit in the documentary was formed by subduction, which occurs when one tectonic plate goes under another. I liked how safety was always their first priority. They did multiple test dives at different depths so that if there was any problems with the submarine they could fix it before the actual dive. I also enjoyed how they named the animals they saw in the test dives such as the angler-fish. It was also nice that they explained how the Mariana trench was formed. I learned from this documentary that with enough time and enough determination that you can do things that the average person can not. If your life goal is to reach the bottom of the ocean then you can. I believe that other people will also learned the same thing from this documentary. I believe that adults that are interested in ocean exploration or any type of exploration will find this documentary enjoyable. I would not recommend this documentary to younger children because they tend to have a shorter attention span and this movie has its fair share of long and boring moments.
