Movie Reviews

A Definitive IMAX Experience
Anthony Lavado | Burlington, ON, Canada | 07/21/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, let's face it. This film came out before my time. I wasn't around in 1982 to see this when it premiered in big screen theatres. I only managed to catch wind of it thanks to an old DOS Educational program from Knowledge Adventure that featured the film itself. But ever since I was little, this film has never failed to capture my imagination.

It is definitely a great experience for those who can manage to catch it on an IMAX big screen as I had the chance to in May, (In fact, I think the Ontario Place Cinesphere in Toronto is the only theatre in the world still showing this film!) but this film DEFINITELY lives up to its title.

It is a rather short lived film (as most IMAX films are, due to the limitations of the format, around 40 minutes) with this particular title weighing in at around 30 minutes. For the time that it does last, the movie takes you through a whirlwind of information about the history of speed, some of its various uses, and how the technology has progressed today. Tie it off with a nice 2001: A Space Odyssey like sequence about travelling faster than light, and you have yourself a not so detailed, but fun introduction to various forms of speed. The film bases its success widely on the variety of shots that it uses from aerial cameras with the Blue Angel Precision Flying Squadron, to the front of a rollercoaster.

An overall good film, but more suited to children around ages 8 and up."
Well produced, fun experience

"As with all the other HD IMAX titles, "Speed" is a fun ride. The WMV High Definition quality is excellent, the story is engaging, and the production quality is top notch."
