Beautiful Film
18 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beautiful film about a one of the most beautiful places in America. Having just come back from an all-paddle trip down the Colorado, I can guarantee you that the film brought back many spine tingling moments on the river.

If you've recently rafted the canyon, you'll recognize many places seen only from the river. If you aren't able to raft the Colorado, this film comes as close as you can possible get without going there.

The name of the film is "river at risk", and after spending a week in a canyon with experts, I can certify that the title is aptly named. Yes, the film is part lecture and lesson, but how can you not look at lake levels at the Hoover Dam and not understand the problem.

Please don't listen to the that other review posted by the Haliburton CEO. I'm not sure he even went to the movie based on his comments. He's obviously very uneducated.

Go see this film. It's enjoyable from beginning to end, exciting, and important.
