Movie Reviews

"Ok..Let me guess...You could care less about these animals, right ? Being an IMAX film lover, (I have collected them all on DVD) - This was the final one I had to purchase. I was in for a surprize ! This is (by far) my FAVORITE Imax film. As simple as it is, it shows us a small family of beavers and what they do in the wilderness. BRILLIANT ! The camera work is astounding, the digital sound is supurb, and the film transfer is crystal clear. Trust me on this one....After viewing this film, you will want to own a pet beaver of your own. They are so adorable and easy to fall in love with ! A remarkable and VERY sweet IMAX presentation. Also, check out the MAKING OF 'BEAVERS' after viewing this: This is one of the best extras to be included in a SLINGSHOT release ! I can't say enough about how FANTASTIC this is ! Don't wait like I did....You won't be disappointed. Fun for the kids as well as adults."
This One is Fun!! Time and Money Well Spent...

"This is just great cinema! The visual imagery and superior 5.1 DDSS tell a great story about these fascinating creatures. The narration is kept to a minimum, though the compositions of Eldon Ratheburn add a dimension in music enriching this production. Andy Kitzanuk's photography with the vision of Stephen Low truly make the beavers 'spectacular'. Every minute of this film is dramatic in sight, sound, or story. The humor is just spontaneous. I can't fathom the effort, time and money that went to making this production. "The Making of..." sequence begins to touch on that. It is well worth the effort.
As an IMAX junkie, a father of two, and someone who loves nature, BEAVERS is time well spent. The kids love it, though I must admit, I have watched it more!! Few films in my DVD library are as entertaining for a group of professional thirtysomething adults too. I can't find a bad review on this one, and there is a definite reason. Enjoy it!!"
Best IMAX movie I've seen

"If you like nature videos, you'll love this one! I've got about 15 IMAX DVD's and this is my favourite one! I'm amazed at how good the video quality is. Everything is very bright, crisp, and clear.

The DVD comes with extras, such as the making of this movie.

The only down side to this IMAX movie is that it's very short. It's approximately 30 minutes long."
Movie making at its best and most noble.

"In looking for the top rated IMAX DVDs to get for Christmas this one repeatedly came up as a five star just about everywhere I looked, and was never less than four stars. If you're an IMAX fan, outdoor/animal lover, or just want very high quality entertainment for your home, then you must consider adding this film to your collection. Its not just a kids film either, all of the adults in our family enjoy it just as much as the kids do."
