"I just can't get past this BD being just 37 minutes. Great footage, no doubt! Made even better in HD! But even knowing it's a short movie, when those closing credits roll you're like, "That's it?! Damn." Sure, in "The Making of..." you learn it's like a million dollars a minute (or something ridiculous like that) to shoot IMAX from an F/A-18 and so you can understand why the film is not longer, but still...37 minutes?"
An aging documentary but it's ok.

"I watched 'The Magic of Flight' after vieiwing another IMAX film titled 'The Alps' (which blew me away).

It's clear that tMoF is a much older movie and this shows in all apsects of its production compared to the newer documentaries brought out by the same company on the IMAX format.

This doesn't mean tMoF isn't worth a watch,especially for fans of the genre,but I think it's average at best and would only recommend this title if the price reflects this."
An interesting look at Flight in IMAX
Blue Eyes Movie Guy | Chicago, IL | 05/10/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Overall, this was a well done film. The viewer gets many different views of what it is like to fly with the Blue Angels.

The IMAX cameras are mounted on different angles on the plane, so you get a close up view of what it is like to be in the cockpit with the Blue Angels or land on an aircraft carrier at sea.

There is also interesting background on the origination of flight (Wright Brothers).

This documentary was filmed in IMAX and it looks great on Blu-Ray and a good High Definition TV.

I liked the documentary of the making of the film as well; the director and crew went to great efforts to make a quality film.

"Well Done. Selleck does a great job of narration. If you have a Blu-Ray player, the photography is outstanding"
