Storyline

Adrenaline Rush: the Science of Risk takes a look at the world of skydiving and base jumping - parachuting from a building, a bridge or a cliff. While providing breathtaking views of skydiving over the Florida Keys, the Mojave Desert and in the magnificent Fjords of Norway, this giant-screen experience explores the psychological and physiological forces behind risk-taking, and the physics involved in these activities. In doing so, it also shows us how risk-taking is part of everyday life. The storyline focuses on two risk-takers, Adrian Nicholas and Katarina Ollikainen. Nicholas, a veteran skydiver who has performed thousands of jumps, is the record holder for the longest unassisted human flight, a 4-minute 55-second flight at speeds of up to 200 kilometers/hour that took place in 1999. Adrenaline Rush even allows spectators to directly experience a base jump thanks to a camera strapped to one of the professional jumpers who took part in the film. You can live through a 1300-meter (... Written by Sky High Entertainment

One of the best documentaries I have seen in years
24 June 2004 | by (Mind of the Films) – See all my reviews

"Adrenaline Rush" was a terrific look at the modern technology we use to take flight in the world of growing knowledge. Great cinematography and camera

work show the audience what it is like to fly like an eagle on the wings of a sunrise. The film follows two "risk takers" in their attempt to create a parachute drawn by Leonardo Da Vinci in the 1500's in order to further understand what

makes humans fly at best. Anecdotes and stories of modern science are added

to this through out the film, giving the viewer, be it adult of kid, a great deal to comprehend in the short forty-five minutes that they are viewing. I particularly liked the scenes involving the "new" kind of parachute that allows divers to fall and float more like a bird than just fall out the sky regularly. All the people on the crew clearly knew what they were doing, and this film proves so by many haps. Great musical cues animate the sky as these experienced ski divers free fall and play air games with a tennis ball. This is a good one-the kind that makes you want to go and take the risk! 10/10
