2.0 out of 5 stars grand canyon Dec 17 2011
By Anthony
Format:Blu-ray
was very diasappointed in this film. It was very misleading, thought it was about the grand canyon, instead it was more concerned about the water running through the grand canyon... I was under the impression that it was a film about the history of the grand canyon. not about some photographer who takes his daughter for a ride down the colorado river.. again just very disa ppointed

4.0 out of 5 stars It's More about Water Conservation than Scenery May 28 2011
By Eddie Chu TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was aware of the water conservation theme because of other reviews. Nonetheless, the scenery of the Grand Canyon is well presented from a personal perspective. Who can complain about well done scenery presentations of the Grand Canyon?

I enjoyed it, especially for some shots that match historical perspectives. They show what the Colorado River was like decades ago versus what it is today. The comparison is appropriately alarming: we are using up resources much faster than Nature replenishes it. Inaction will mean major disruptions to our lives.

I am writing this during a visit to Las Vegas. Seeing the abundant use of water by the hotel features (fountains, decorative canals, etc. They promote evaporation loss big time) help me realize we are barging ahead in this wasteful use of water and things must change, or scarcity will impose changes that we are unprepared for.

A must-see for those who like the Grand Canyon scenery and also want to find out more about the need to conserve.

3.0 out of 5 stars Water conservation, Not Grand Canyon Feb. 12 2012
By #####
Format:Blu-ray
Great idea, but this project was miss lead by the title.
This production starts off in the Grand Canyon then gets into water supply's of the world.
It's a shame they went about it in this manner.
Some 3D shots were shot incorrectly, flat against the river. Helicopter shots don't normally work well in 3D, one did.
I learned nothing about the creation of the Grand Canyon in the production and not enough about anything to do with the Grand Canyon.
Over all this project would be considered a dud.

3.0 out of 5 stars Grand Canyon Adventure April 17 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Beautiful photography; but not enough of it. Too much politics; albeit true but I paid the extra money for Blu ray for the scenery etc. Have been to the Grand Canyon four times and would go again.

2.0 out of 5 stars I won't recommend it Jan. 16 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
There are very little good 3D effects and no really good plans of the Grand Canyon. Its more a movie on the shortage of water than of the Grand Canyon. I was disapointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't buy this dvd!!! Jan. 7 2012
By DW
Format:Blu-ray
This Video says it is Grand Canyon adventure. What it really is, is a left leaning story about our lack of water. The terrible job that man has done in looking after our water supply.
I wrongfully thought that it would be filled with breath taking scenes of the Grand Canyon when it was mearly a back drop for a lecture from one of our favorite lefty environmentalist Robert Redford.
This should be advertised as a film about water, and given to left leaning folks like green peace and david suzuki and elizabeth may...and I guess a lot of hollywood actors who love to put a voice to preceived problems but little else.

Unless you are a lefty stay away...
