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.
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.

I actually saw this at an IMAX theatre in Germany. Was disappointed not only in the misleading story line, but the mediocre (at best) 3D effects.Published 5 months ago by Patrick Helbig
It seem 3D movies it is only for children (most of film is animation, horror ...)
Grand Canyon it is ONE of a KIND.
3D television is a FLOP. Read more
Cool, relaxing and exciting view over the GC. Crisp clear image. A couple of out of screen effects together with a nice music background makes a good show.Published on March 17 2014 by Amazon Customer
