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.

A few people need risk to light up their life, these ones here jump or nearly fly
6 December 2005 | by altair-4-toastSee all my reviews

Just arrived from OMNIMAX theater, this film viewed with this IMAX format is just electrifying as the adrenaline rushes its characters are looking for, this document covers some parachute and B.A.S.E. jumping activities done by those who make risk a way of life, as others need safety and wellness, these ones look for potentially mortal experiences, and to say the truth they all looked like being very happy... Not my way, period, but still they made it look funny. Pro air cameramen do great work for the movie, and they make a real try on some Leonardo Davinci's previous designs. Nice time for dinning-room sofa sportsmen looking for some stress, watch this movie in LARGE format if possible!
