Not perfect, but still great entertainment!
16 December 2000 | by lawlamSee all my reviews

Cyberworld is truly unique in the sense that it not only provides the animation content in 3D, but it also provides the movie experience in 3D thanks to IMAX's incredible technology.

Here's a brief synopsis of the movie: You enter into a surrealistic 3D gallery where the host guides you through several unreal samples of 3D animation. Unfortunately, the gallery is being destroyed by computer bugs and it is up to the host to stop them before the entire gallery collapses.

From the technological point of view, this movie is astounding. The animation is realistic and in some cases, surrealistic. The artists who helped to compose this movie have really pushed the limits of the software and hardware capacities available to create a movie that is stunning to the eye.

From the creative point of view, this movie has a few flaws. The galleria bridge between each sequence was very well thought out, but the transition between some of the sequences seemed a little abrupt at times. Not to mention that there was a rather heavy emphasis on the theme of bugs.

Overall though, this is a truly unique experience in movies that is well worth discovering. Never been to an IMAX movie before? Maybe it's time you find out what IMAX is all about by seeing this movie...
