Movie Reviews

Spectacular photography & intelligent script
E. Karasik | Washington, DC United States | 12/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an awe-inspiring film in the literal sense: it starts out by advising the viewer that none of the scenes of the sun are computer-generated -- they are all actual photographs -- and awesome they are. It is hard to wrap one's mind around the magnitude of these solar events. The explanations of how solar storms impact our planet, and the discussion of how earlier cultures understood and worshipped the sun are fascinating, but the killer images of the aurora borealis, Machu Picchu, and the sun itself are what make this film a must-see."

"Solarmax is an amazing accomplishment in presenting extremely clear images of the sun in various wavelengths and of the northern lights IN MOTION. I never knew before this movie that the norhtern lights move about quickly. Faint fast moving light is very difficult to capture on film, and their techniqes are the result of years of work in this field.
In addition to being science that is accessable to everyday people, Solarmax tells the story of peoples relationship to the sun through visiting various archeological sites and telling the story of the people who built them. The photography and music is extremely moving.
The producer and directors comments and just as compelling and interesting as the core movie itself. Also there is a 1960's featurette included on the northern lights that is enjoyable too.
I highly, HIGHLY recommend this movie to anyone interested in astronomy, northern lights, science or archeology. I only wish I had been able to see it in the IMAX big screen theatre. As it is I've watched it at least 12 times!!!!"
A Journey to the Sun and Back

"This digitally-mastered video is what high-definition is. The pictures are real and look so clear and crisp and the story is just plain genius. "SolarMax" looks at the Sun in a new way, using images from SoHo, a satellite made to photograph the sun. This movie is a definite 5-star because it not only gives you a close look and great information on the sun, but it also shows how cultures have used the sun in many different ways. This movie is great fun for the whole family!"

"Turn off all the lights in the room. Close the blinds. Put SolarMax into the DVD player. Turn up the volume as high as it will go. In an hour, you'll be scared to go outside in the daytime.

It's the most educational action-movie in the solar system."
