Format: DVD
This is a well-produced DVD and the imagery is very high resolution. Contrast and color are very good. Liam Neeson is an outstanding narrator. Most of the imagery of the movie is great. Very dramatic panoramas, especially the helicopter fly-throughs. You will enjoy watching the movie once.
Unfortunately, the reason I don't rate it more than 3 stars is Amazing Caves suffers the common IMAX shortcoming that it has been produced as an all ages, all audiences film ... with a juvenile story, written at the 4th grade level. Too much of this brief 40 minute movie is wasted tending to the silly plot.
One can sit through it once and enjoy it, certainly if you have kids with you, and at a real IMAX theater. Your kids might enjoy watching it more than once, especially younger daughters since the two main characters are women scientists/adventurers. But with kids being so smart and worldly these days, even 6th graders would tire of the simplistic story and narration.
Why can't there be IMAX movies with appeal at a more intelligent level? Everest is a good example of an IMAX movie which does succeed in appealing to all audiences, but isn't written at a juvenile level.
The great caving and nature imagery in Amazing Caves is very frequently interrupted so they can keep tending to their story line of two women on their caving exploration and adventure, always "getting in contact" via a hoaky-looking simulated web video multimedia laptop screen with a small class of kids somewhere. Of course it is simulated and plain silly. There is no live contact with anyone. Probably filmed months apart. Yet they keep returning to this .... story, at least 10 times during the movie. Very annoying. Maybe it will appeal to young kids ...

Format: DVD
I normally like the McGillivray-Freeman IMAX films, but I have to say that this one is the worst I have seen from that company. The subject matter was not very interesting and most of the shots are either close-up or small area shots which make poor use of the IMAX format. The best sequence in the film was flying through parts of the Grand Canyon. This film has none of the interest or drama such as the IMAX film Dolphins has, nor did it have the spectacular area shots which make the most of the IMAX format such as Everest has. All in all, a mediocre effort from a usually winning team (McGillivray-Freeman).

Format: DVD
The concept is great, but the film leaves you wanting for more. First off, getting only 35 minutes of story seems somewhat of a shortcut for the money you spend on a DVD. The subject matter is caves, and if you are interested in the strange beauty of these areas like I am, you are not satisfied with the film. They spend more time on the human element and diversions such as the kayaking mentioned in an earlier review. They needed to dedicated more time to showing the wonderful formations that could be found inside the caves.

Format: DVD
First of all, I am a caver. Before watching this IMAX movie in DC in an IMAX Theater I was afraid I would be disappointed because I realized this movie was to be made for the general public, was I wrong. All thru this movie I kept thinking to myself, I can't wait until this movie is out on DVD, well it is and I highly recommend it. True, it is written to address the general public, but as a caver of over 40 yrs I throughly enjoyed it and I have also bought the CD of the Soundtrack, it is a 5 star in my mind also and I am not a Moody Blues fan.
The photography is super, I like the behind the scenes part as much as the movie, so you are getting two shows for the price of one. If something happened to my DVD of "Journey Into Amazing Caves", I would have to go out and buy another for my DVD library, I like it that much.
I have seen a few IMAX movies in my time and this is one of my favorites, if not my favorite, but I am a caver and I like caves.

Format: DVD
Even on a small screen, this IMAX special is riveting. With visits to dry, ice and water caves, there are always thrilling moments. Most of the first third deals with accessing the cave in the Grand Canyon with some nifty aerial tricks. However, there is only a glimpse of the cavern itself. More time is spent kayaking on the actual blue-green Colorado River. The Greenland ice cave sequence again is more about the harrowing and dangerous aspect of unstable blue-ice caves, but still manages to thrill with fantastic photography. The one last sequence in the cenotes of Mexico is truly amazing with divers actually taking off thier tanks to squeeze through holes!
The great soundtrack by the Moody Blues is not readily apparent and is played down except at the end and beginning. The narration is sometimes annoying and juvenile, providing information that teenagers might find interesting. I expected more cave shots and not science lessons.
However, this is a great film and includes a "behind the scenes" story that is every bit as interesting as the main movie. The soundtrack in itself if better as a separate CD.

This is an amazing film! I haven't had the pleasure of seeing it on the IMAX screen though, but it is still breathtaking. I admire these 'cavers' for their courage in seeking out the unexplored places of the earth. Greenland was just beautiful, a place I know I won't be visiting anytime soon. There are many unexplored beautiful places on this planet noone has witnessed even yet, but this is a nice glimpse into that special world. I also recommend the soundtrack, very captivating. Enjoy! Peace, Dakota
