What a rush this was!
4 September 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I knew this that this film was the very first I ever visited at a Imax theater and it still gives me thrills all over. From the early bicycle to the grand sonic boom at the end, this movie is a thrill ride all on its own.

Altho it's now available on DVD (you have to look really hard, but it's there!), it's better to see this on the big IMAX screen. Home screen on TV just don't cut it, you have to experience this movie as big as possible or else the magic just won't work.

But the movie isn't bad and even on the short side - 30 minutes, that's all, but what a ride!
