IMAX Version
2 September 2003 | by (Seoul, Korea) – See all my reviews

I seen the documentary of Shackleton's Adventure in an IMAX Theatre in Seattle in 2001. I'm surprised it wasn't listed on this site. It was a very good story of a man and crew, the hardships and freezing weather they went through. It was quite a feat especially back then without all the technology we have now. Very good story.
