5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeously picturesque blu-ray
The scenery of this blu-ray is as gorgeously shot as what I expected. What I didn't expect was the overall sense of harmony with sport and nature that each extreme athlete experiences. This beautiful film has a very hypnotic effect and left me wanting more. (approx. 45 min. total - chapter headings: Tow-in Surfing, Giant Waves, Mountain Climbing, Skiing, Snowboarding,...

2.0 out of 5 stars good attempt, poor execution
excessive, constant dance tune sound track totally removes from the incredible scenic beauty, and cannot turn down volume unless you don't care about narration -- mediocre shooting of sports action, the best of which is the skiing and the worst of which is the surfing: all but skiing looks like a bunch of edit-room floor scraps -- in essence, as one experienced with some...

This review is from: Extreme [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The scenery of this blu-ray is as gorgeously shot as what I expected. What I didn't expect was the overall sense of harmony with sport and nature that each extreme athlete experiences. This beautiful film has a very hypnotic effect and left me wanting more. (approx. 45 min. total - chapter headings: Tow-in Surfing, Giant Waves, Mountain Climbing, Skiing, Snowboarding, Man and the Mountain, Windsurfing, Adrenaline Rush, Rock Climbing, Nature as Art.) The Making Of is just as interesting, but again, runs a little short at approx. 22min. I can really watch this again and again, so highly recommended for fans of extreme sports or great blu-ray scenery etc.

This review is from: Imax / Extreme [Import] (DVD)
Excellent cinimatography and some really well chosen locations for this film. Music is good too. Very hard to find though.
One of the best Imax films ever!
