Movie Reviews

Visual masterpiece. Alaska gets to be explained and enjoyed.
Eduardo Middleton K. | Santiago, A.M. Chile | 06/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sometimes the impresive achievements of the Imax and dvd technologies exceed the quality of the content of a certain documentary. This is not the case. If any, this video keeps us longing for more, much more. Since the beginning of this highly entertaining video we feel commited to watch one of the untamed scenaries of our world. Virgin Landscapes (rivers and mountains that are yet to be named), wild and funny animals (such as the black bear taking a bath, the humpback whales bubblenetting, the wild polar bear cubs and the stubborn salmon) and an extreme weather that changes the sorrounding scenary on a daily basis are described and tought with either the lightness of humour, or the concern of a nature fan. If you like to watch beautiful images over and over, buy this dvd."
This was my first Imax purchase

"and the film was so good I went out and bought more Imax films. Unfortunaley not all of the Imax films are as good as this one. This film has everything going for it the photography and naration are top notch. The film keeps moving and your never bored. DVD'S are expensive and it is easey to get hook when buy a good one. There are many good Imax films but not all of them are worth the price. This one and The Living Sea stand out above the rest in my opinion. The Adventures in Wild California is another one though it has not been release on DVD that I have seen are just excellent. On the other hand films like Niagrea,Yellowstone and The Grand Canyon are a big step down. In those films they try to tell a story and it comes off more like amatuer night. When I view an Imax film I look for spectacular images,fun and for it to be educational. The first three films I have mention fit the bill."
Alaska is exceptional

"This IMAX video in dvd format represents a cinematic masterpiece. The breathtaking video and haunting audio truly capture the vastness and serenity of this great land. For anyone who has lived the dream of having visited Alaska, or for anyone who yearns for this frontier, "IMAX Alaska" will captivate your imagination and inspire your soul."
Gorgeous and safe for kids

"This is wonderful for the family. Super shots of scenery and animals (the latter with good humor as well). Charleton Heston's narration is apt and not overdone (though the volume is a bit low as compared with the otherwise excellent music soundtrack that is Aaron Copeland-esque). A very nice intro to the glories of Alaska, it even includes a bit of history on the Gold Rush."
