An enjoyable documentary about the history of 3D art
25 March 2000 | by (Edmonton, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was the first 3D IMAX film I have seen, and I must say I was quite impressed. Not only were the 3D effects spectacular, but the film was quite enjoyable as well.

The roller coaster rides and underwater scenes were quite fun (it really feels like you are there!). The film itself was documentary style, but written in such a way that all ages will find it enjoyable. If it's still playing near you, it's worth seeing.
