NASCAR: The IMAX Experience Reviews

A rather rote and superficial look at the NASCAR circuit.

It turns out that racing around an oval track offers surprisingly few opportunities to exploit 3D effectively.

I wanted more time on the track, more passing, more actual racing. NASCAR (Stock car racing) implies "adrenaline rush" and I missed that in this otherwise solid documentary.

The film is about as illuminating as the race cars' stickered-on headlights.

This one does manage to put audiences in the action. And its brief examinations of the science of auto racing are pretty educational.

Movie Views

Part infomercial, part historical documentary, all in 3-D, Nascar 3D is best seen as a spectacle, something that exists for its format rather than its content.

The movie makes an excellent primer about the world of stock car racing for fans and nonfans alike.

In spite of flaws, for sheer size and bravado, it still deserves a look

Those vehicles sure are big, they come right at you, and they're in one heck of a hurry. For about 40 minutes, that's all you really need.

An interesting behind-the-scenes look at one of the world's most popular spectator sports.

March 12, 2004
Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Offers a bit of NASCAR history, a smattering of engineering facts, glimpses of some of the sport's most popular personalities and a whole lot of hyperbolic chatter about the populist glory of driving really noisy cars in a circle at 200 miles per hour.

Its rampant corporate sponsorship is messy and distracting, and the athleticism necessary to triumph is still less intriguing (perhaps because it's less visible) than the athleticism necessary to triumph in, say, baseball.

Doesn't quite overcome its shameless self-promotion, but the film will satisfy the Lynyrd Skynyrd set while providing a decent explanation to those who are baffled by the sport's popularity.

In an amazingly compact 47 minutes, veteran director Simon Wincer outlines the history of the sport, evokes its culture and packs it with jaw-dropping statistics while never slackening the pace.

As IMAX fare goes, NASCAR 3D is an action-packed ride.
