IMAX film-making at its best!, 14 May 2006
Author: somebodyfamousjr from United States

If you've seen a lot of IMAX films you know that the best ones have:

a.) Plenty of aerial footage

b.) Educational value

c.) Lots of beautiful scenery, and

d.) People risking their lives doing foolish stunts mostly just to entertain US.

Adventures in Wild California has plenty of all four.

California is a beautiful state with many varied topographies and AIWC showcases all of them. It's basically a forty-minute infomercial for California tourism, but that doesn't really matter because this movie is a cinematic thrill ride!

If you've never seen an IMAX film, go see this one and it will have you hooked on IMAX for life!
