Includes "How We Faked It" Documentary, 9 October 2001
Author: Eric Koch ( from Allen, Texas

I generally love IMAX DVDs, but this one was definitely the exception. Not only was the DVD fairly boring, but when watching the DVD "extras," I got to see how much of the main film's footage was staged. Isn't it bad enough to stage it in the first place without flaunting it? Both The Living Sea and Whales are terrific IMAX DVDs, among others. Don't waste your time with this one.
