Looks beautiful, and it's also a snoozer
3 December 2001 | by Quinoa1984See all my reviews

Journey into the Amazing Caves is a snooze fest, one of those specially made museum videos specially made for the Imax screen with the substance a 10 year old wouldn't really be able to stand let alone most adults. Still, I can't totally put down this movie, as that directors Stephen Judson and Greg MacGillivray and the five cinematographers (one MacGillivray) have compiled a great looking short flick with some really breathtaking scenery and shots accompanied by some decent Moody Blues music (the classical stuff is a little much though). In other words, it's a movie that works well on the Imax screen as long as you keep the sound off. Narrated by Liam Neeson. C+
