Movie Info

On the heels of the announcement that mankind has entered what some scientists call a "100 year mega-drought," the producers of Everest and Mystery of the Nile invite viewers to explore the efficient ways in which Native Americans once used the Colorado River without sacrificing the scenic land that surrounds it. Few would deny that fresh water is perhaps the world's most precious resource, yet the way things are headed we may lose that resource sooner than we think. Now, environmental activist

A good IMAX film usually combines eye-popping visuals with a 'teachable moment', a little history, geology, biology or what not, tucked in between the pretty pictures. Grand Canyon Adventure more than fills that bill.

Grand Canyon is such fun to watch with its superb, 3D quality that it's impossible not to be more caught up, albeit temporarily, in the illusion of getting splashed than in the unsettling realities of the environmental crisis it describes.

As entertainment, it can be heart-poundingly exciting. As education, it has some merit. But as a movie, Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk 3D is kind of a mess.

An outstanding example of what can be accomplished in large-format documentaries.

The scenery isn't mind-blowing or the filmmaking awesome, but there's a certain majesty in how the movie achieves its noble goal of raising awareness about the world water crisis.
