Sub-par Imax, 29 November 1998
Author: anonymous from New York, NY

The seven "greatest places" creates an interesting concept. However, the number makes it impossible for such a brief film to do justice to any of these great places. Imaxes should dwell on one location, to really maximize its beauty -- as in "Everest" or "Africa: the Serengeti" or "Niagara." Skip it - it loses the thrilling capabilities of the Imax format.
