Storyline

Four kids and a dog embark on the adventure of a lifetime -- the search for the end of the Rainbow. With the aid of computers and an irrepressible belief, they achieve the impossible, finding and riding the multicolored arc. But the gold they take starts a more dangerous adventure, because gold gives the Rainbow energy and the Rainbow gives the world its colors...and if earth loses the color green, no oxygen can be produced. As the world turns black and white, the children battle time and disbelief to restore the Rainbow's power...and save the world. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The first live-action theatrical motion picture originated on digital high definition video for distribution and exhibition in 35mm film. Two-time Academy Award© winner Freddie Francis photographed the movie with the Sony HDC-500 digital high definition camera system. Following the successful completion of this ground-breaking 'experiment', Sony along with Panavision developed the next generation of this camera system, the Sony HDC-750 for George Lucas' "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" (1999) and the Sony/Panavision HDW-F900, which Lucas utilized in the production of "Star Wars:Episode II-Attack Of The Clones" (2002). Director Bob Hoskins discovered this system whilst filming the Television mini-series "World War II: When Lions Roared" (1994) in the role of Winston Churchill and decided he would introduce this Sony HDTV system to the theatrical motion picture industry starring and directing his next feature film, "Rainbow" See more »

AWESOME!!!, up there with goonies and flight of navigator
10 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wow!!! So happy I have finally got to see this. Remember seeing it in the video shop as a kid and the cover looked magical. Picked it up for 20p from a charity shop today. IT IS SO COOL.

Basically these kids hang round a train yard playing in the trains and exploring the city. One day one of them sees a rainbow land in front of him and its the most magical thing ever. Now all the kids want to find the rainbow again....maybe it will take them somewhere....maybe it will change everything.....

Hope you enjoy it. Kids from age of 7 to 10 should absolutely love this.

I'm 29 and I love it so adults should like it a lot too.
