Not one of the best IMAX films I have seen!
13 June 2000 | by (Regina, SK) – See all my reviews

It is quite unfortunate for Epic Journeys: The Great Migrations to have come out in 1999. In the early 90's almost the same production crew filmed the amazing film, Africa The Serengeti. Even though Epic Journey's tries to recapture the same magic of Africa The Serengeti, it misses the mark. A few segments are captivating, but others are festering with boredom. See this film if you are an animal lover of any type, and you will enjoy it, but for a real treat rent a copy of Africa The Serengeti, and wish you had seen it in all it's glory on the giant IMAX Screen.
