A classic IMAX Experience
30 May 2002 | by (Charleston, SC) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at an IMAX film festival a couple of years ago. The shots of the earth from space are amazing, and the best part is, these aren't Hollywood Special Effects. It's all real. Even 15 years after it was made, it's still one of IMAX's best films.
