Pretty good
3 July 2001 | by (Mobile, Alabama) – See all my reviews

I worked at an IMAX theater for 3 years. We had to watch the same movie several times a day, every day. Dolphins was definitely one of the better IMAX films. The film is very educational, but also manages to be entertaining. The visual effects are good as well. The tropical scenery is breath-taking.
