Movie Reviews

Top-notch in every regard.
Menno Alberts | 03/07/2000

"While it's tough to match the experience of an IMAX theater, this piece does an excellent job. Video quality is excellent, as good as any I have seen. Colors are vivid and crisp. Audio includes a good musical score (a bit loud at some points, but appropriate overall) and good use of under-water sound that makes good use of the soundstage. Narration is high quality. A good example of what a DVD can be, particularly for fans of the IMAX format."

"This is an amazing feature-the best I've ever seen on whales. The great thing about it is that it includes a number of different species of whales and also has fantastic scenic shots! Breathtaking close-ups & crystal clear pictures"
Suitable ocean scenes.

"This film on whales, originally shown in Imax, has excellent footage on whales and chronicles of their annual migration. It is narrated by an actor who starred in many films.
There are a suitable number of underwater scenes to make this an all around good presentation, but don't expect footage in quantity to equal it to "The Blue Planet", or "Secrets of the Ocean Realm" films. There are underwater clips to marvel at here. One of these is when the camera swims over a rocky ground, which contains killer whale skeletons. The best ocean scene of all. However, it is an excellent comparison and an essential film to own.
The VHS film quality is fine. The digital transfer is all right, nothing significant. The music looks good, playing as if recorded immediately after the Imax premiere. Your best buy, however, would be the newly mastered DVD."

"Great family show! We saw this movie as an IMAX (Virginia Beach Marine Science Museum) film with our 3 & 5 year old boys. Now they love whales. Especially my 5 year old. He keeps amazing me with the facts that he remembers from the film. Breathtaking footage,especially the humpbacks feeding. This is a movie I won't mind watching again and again."
