Not a Good Choice

"Please don't spend your entertainment dollars on this video. It was a tremendous disappointment. The picture quality is not good. If this is the same film shown in IMAX theatres, I bet there were a LOT of unhappy customers. The views of the Grand Canyon are limited and the story line is weak, at best. I never found out what the "hidden secrets" were. I am a huge IMAX fan and I knew this would not be the same when viewed on my TV. That was an understatement. If this had been given to me it still would not be any better. Please enjoy images of the Grand Canyon from another source. This is NOT the way you want to do it.
Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets

"This documentary is shown in the IMAX theater in Tusayan near the entrance of the Canyon. I like the opening line, "Man clings to the edge of eternity." The film focuses on human activity. The Anasazi were the first people in the Canyon. The Spaniards found it in 1540. John Wesley Powell, a one-armed Civil War veteran, navigated the Colorado River in 1869. I was waiting for geology. It never came. The producers aim for a big screen experience and ticket sales rather than trying to impart knowledge. I wondered about the film's subtitle. It seems the secrets might be the fossils buried in the Canyon walls.

"Excellent documentary. Found out about the movie while visiting the Grand Canyon. We are so happy we purchased this item in the Imax format. You really feel as if you are souring over the canyon, riding the rapids, and standing on the edge. We often watch this movie to relive the experience of actually being there. It makes us eager to return."
