If you love science, travel and true adventure stories, this film has it all. It's by the makers of the stunner "Flight of the Butterflies," which i also really loved, and, like that film, this one is also specially made for the IMAX/Giant Screen in museum cinemas and science centers. So it's great family-friendly fare and just the ticket for bringing the kids. This is the real-deal. It's a docu-drama that is so lush it feels more like a feature film. I had never heard of naturalist and adventurer Henry Bates or his incredible, inspirational story of discovery. This film brings the audience on a journey into his world, completely immersing us in the mind-boggling adventure he embarked on more than 150 years ago in the heart of the Amazon rainforest in 3D. I marvel at this kind of passionate perseverance. It's a dramatic tale and the visuals are just stunning. The film also features so much biodiversity and is full of surprises and gee-whiz shots-- with plenty of nature's phenomena, mimicry and camouflage in the creatures of the Amazon. Things aren't always as they appear in the jungle, and this movie really makes the science come alive. You'll see the Amazon through Bates's eyes and then want to book a trip to Brazil!
