A Disaster of IMAX Proportions
21 May 2005 | by docbart30See all my reviews

This was the worst IMAX movie I have seen to date. The script was fragmented and didn't fully explain much about the things we were witnessing. I expected to see a show about volcanoes and got a show about hot water organisms which was never fully explained or explored. The subject matter was broad and superficial, with a completely unnecessary glossing of the big bang theory and the formation of the universe. I admit the actual footage of the underwater structures/creatures was amazing, but those shots were spliced with animated/fictional segments which were not introduced as being fake and would mislead or confuse most people. All the good shots were repeatedly obscured by the faces of the explores being superimposed on a porthole so that we could share in the expression of their poorly acted surprise. When I see an IMAX I expect a tightly focused exploration of a special topic and a minimal use of fake graphics, and this one didn't have either. Save your money.
