The combination of aerial photography with archival material provides plenty of texture not just eye candy, and the simplicity of the film allows the giant IMAX images to rule

'Rocky Mountain Express' not only shows the Canadian Rockies in all their glory, but it also demonstrates what it's like to ride on The Empress, aka the Canadian Pacific 2816, a restored train from the 1930s.

Audience Reviews for Rocky Mountain Express

It's like train porn, deep incredible sound and stunning visuals get any railroad enthusiast all hot and bothered

Beautifully filmed (iMax), very educational, and a gripping story behind it: building a railway across Canada in the late 1800s. But it's a little slow, especially for kids; one of mine (age 4) fell asleep after a few minutes, and the other (age 6) couldn't wait to leave, even though he loves trains. Oh well.
