Critic Reviews for Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk
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.
Paradoxically, the beauty and splendor of the Grand Canyon...almost belies this docu's dire ecological message
Ostensibly, Grand Canyon is about threats to the river that quenches the thirst of much of the West Coast, but the movie is all over the map.
Although muddled at times from its cross-purpose agendas of trumpeting conservation and establishing a story arc that never quite congeals, "Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk" is a lush look at a journey that few people will ever experience except vic
Audience Reviews for Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk
Wow, the Grand Canyon as I'll never see it otherwise. This 3D IMAX feature (on Blu-Ray 3D) is shockingly real with amazing sights. Of all the 3D programs I've seen so far, this is the best (closely followed by the NASA spacestation 3D). When you watch this, I suggest: 1) don't hold anything in your hands as you will need to grab your arm rest to hold on thru the rapids and 2) bring a towel--your going to get wet.
Stylistically straight out of the '70s. Awkward pointless interviews, twangy EZ listening score, and unintelligent environmentalist cliches. Par for the course as a boomer-porn IMAX film, and decidedly worse than early masterpieces in the format like "Beavers."
Go see this movie in 3D IMAX. It is a fun, informative water ride down the Colorado River in 3D. The great Dave Matthews soundtrack makes the movie even more enjoyable.
