21 May 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie must disappoint a lot of people who go and see it, as do a lot of imax movies these days (aside from Adrenaline, that is). Instead of seeing a lot of large-screen moving action, really experiencing, for instance, the intensity of flying, we have to sit through too slick, militaristic, americanistic (e.g. an a blue angels pilot talking about how he does it all for the children who want his autograph) nonsense. This movie format is made to really immerse you in the subject, while a good, not to over dramatic like in this movie, commentator tells you a bit about what you're seeing, it is not meant for 40 minutes of talking heads (with only a few real flying shots).
