An IMAX Visual Feast
23 September 2002 | by (New York, N.Y.) – See all my reviews

Visually stunning on a huge IMAX screen, this short film (42 minutes) is an accurate depiction of the epic Army trek to the Pacific commanded by Lewis and Clark. Assuming modern sensibilities, the film shows Native Americans as far more accommodating than they actually were and the end credits tell us that two Indians were killed in a skirmish during the return trip.

The scenery is gorgeous, a reminder of how much wilderness we still have and must preserve. For the younger set in particular this film is a good history lesson.

For it's genre, 9/10.
