[Young] occasionally mines the IMAX cliches ... but more often he delivers unforgettable images of China.
Gives only glimpses of the potential for dynamic storytelling many have longed for in an Imax film.
Despite being helmed by Robert M. Young, who knows more than a bit about docus and drama, China immediately plays as a wooden period piece.
So much care has been lavished on the lush, vivid cinematography that very little seems to have been left over for such picayune matters as script continuity, plausible dialogue, coherent editing and acting.
[Young] knows what's important in an IMAX movie and makes certain that the vastness and beauty of China are matched by the pandas' lovable quotient.
If you can ignore the cookie-cutter story and wooden characters and focus instead on the natural wonders that are passing us by as we travel up the Yangtze, chances are good that you won't be disappointed.
Pretty pandas, and Maria Bello: Good. Movie, so-so.
Each stunning scene is a delicious sight, filled with gorgeous, lush landscapes. . .Just open your eyes and say, "A-a-a-ah."
Imax Corp. has been struggling in the last year, and "China: The Panda Adventure" illustrates one reason why.
[W]hen it's all sewn together the final product is as unlovely as Frankenstein.
The spectacle provided by the large-screen format is largely wasted on the movie's schmaltzy storyline.
recreates a simplified tale fit for TV, shows off a pawfull of sweet pandas and offers up a tiny tea cup serving of truly memorable China pans.
