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.

The 3-D vistas from orbit, with the space station suspended like a huge set of wind chimes over the great blue globe, are stanzas of breathtaking, awe-inspiring visual poetry.

IMAX films can sometimes feel like a gimmick, but this is one subject that demands a scope as big as the imagination.

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

Makes even the claustrophobic on-board quarters seem fun.

Anyone who ever fantasized about space travel but can't afford the $20 million ticket to ride a Russian rocket should catch this IMAX offering.

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.

In a normal screen process, these bromides would be barely enough to sustain an interstitial program on the Discovery Channel. But in Imax 3-D, the clichés disappear into the vertiginous perspectives opened up by the photography.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

This is what IMAX was made for: Strap on a pair of 3-D goggles, shut out the real world, and take a vicarious voyage to the last frontier -- space.

The biggest problem with this movie is that it's not nearly long enough.
