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.

Fantastic experience, IMAX is the best way to depict something like this.
One thing you must understand, this movie is a documentary about skydiving and B.A.S.E. jumping, which is another type of skydiving except it's not done from any aircraft but rather from some fixed object on the ground such as Buildings, Antenna's, Spans or Earth (mountains, cliffs).
So, don't expect to see anything else.
However, the way it was produced, filmed and performed is just phenomenal and very enjoyable.
Please watch it and have fun. You really don't have to be involved in this sport to truly appreciate it.
