At its best, Space Station captures the point of view of the space travelers, conveying a sense of awesome mystery and unlimited possibility.

A disappointment for a movie that should have been the ultimate IMAX trip.

As a simulation though, Space Station 3-D definitely takes you to a different place.

It's one thing to read about or rail against the ongoing - and unprecedented - construction project going on over our heads. It's quite another to feel physically caught up in the process.

It's nice to know there's actually somewhere on this earth -- OK, above this earth -- where America is cooperating with other countries rather than p***ing them off.

A sense of peace pervades every element of this movie, from astronauts' chats to the gentle floating shots of the station.

The 3D images only enhance the film's otherworldly quality, giving it a strange combo of you-are-there closeness with the disorienting unreality of the seemingly broken-down fourth wall of the movie screen.

The immersive powers of the giant screen and its hyper-realistic images are put to perfect use in the breathtakingly beautiful outer-space documentary Space Station 3D.

Audience Reviews for Space Station

The first space adventure from IMAX was worth the wait. This documentary film chronicling the first stages of construction of Space Station Alpha from the launch of Zarya to the Expedition Two crew was incredible. I watched this at Gold Coast's Dreamworld and wished it should have English subtitles on.

A little boring at times and the 3D isn't consistently good, but it's still cool to see space like this. I watched it on Blu-ray 3D. Even though I saw this in IMAX 3D when it came out about a decade ago, I don't remember it. I'm sure the experience is much more worthy in IMAX.

It's pretty short and doesn't go into a lot of detail, but I guess it was made for the imagery, which was coo, however, I didn't see it in IMAX, just in my living room...
