Editorial Reviews

Take a thrilling look at the world of skydiving and base jumping - parachuting from a building, a bridge or a cliff. With breathtaking views of skydiving over the Florida Keys, the Mojave Desert and the magnificent Fjords of Norway, this giant-screen experience explores the psychological and physiological forces behind risk-tasking and the physics involved in high-risk activities. The film follows two top risk-takers, Adrian Nicholas and Katarina Ollikainen, as they try to fly the first parachute ever designed as imagined in 1485 by Leonardo da Vinci. Thanks to a camera strapped to one of the professional jumpers who took part in the film, you can also live through a 4,265-foot jump from a legendary Norwegian cliff. Exhibited in IMAX« and other giant-screen theatres around the world, this film has been specially mixed and mastered to produce an outstanding DTS Digital Surround and Dolby Digital 5.1 home theatre experience.

I recently had the opportunity to view this film in its original IMAX format and it was quite an amazing experience. As someone who has recently taken a strong interest in the sport of skydiving, as well as BASE jumping (which I have yet to try), I found this movie as intriguing as any I have ever seen. Not only does this movie provide continuous outstanding shots of professional skydivers and BASE jumpers from around the globe, but it also takes you in great depth, into what goes on inside a person's head, and body, when they take life to the edge. Adrenaline Rush is a fun ride, and provides spectacular insight into what makes people push life to the extreme. I would recommend this DVD to anyone who as ever thrown themselves out of plane, off of a cliff, or anyone who has even the slightest bit of Adrenaline Junkie in them.

This is not only a knee jerking, heart stopping visual treat but and educational one as well. Unbelievable footage on base jumping and a downloadable teachers guide for those who feel to learn a little deeper of what makes them tick.

I give this four stars simply because the sky-diving and base jumping shots are awesome. Loved those. Didn't care much for the scientific explanations behind adrenaline junkies...really wanted more IMAX photography of the jumps themselves. Overall tho, v. cool.

Okay I am new to the sport of skydiving and eventually I will get into BASE jumping, but watching this DVD gave me the chills. Absolutely amazing. The IMAX footage could not be better. Even if you have the slightest interest in BASE jumping or skydiving BUY THIS DVD! It's worth every penny.

The title is a little misleading. It should have been titled something like "A Study In Skydiving" or "A Skydiving Story". There was no "Adrenaline Rush" to this video and I watched it on a 46" HDTV. The vid itself does not convert to the full screen. It's not a bad movie it's just that the title has you expecting something much more. You would think for an IMAX movie it would have some awesome skydive views but no, movies a little dry. I've seen better skydive vids on YouTube. If you can borrow this movie from someone or buy it for $5 or less then I would recommend it but not worth what I paid (less than $20) and seriously not worth the $40 plus being asked for it now. Now I've been tandem skydiving and that was an "Adrenaline Rush" and that I highly recommend at least once in your life time.

I saw this movie at the Clark Planetarium IMax theater in Salt Lake City, Utah, the largest IMax screen in the state. Shown in 3D, it was like you were there jumping off the cliffs and flying around.

I liked it so much I purchased it but don't care to watch it much out of the IMax theater. Obviously, the MAJOR downside is home screen size, then 3D availability. I have watched it on a 47in HD tv.

As far as content, I think the video has been disassembled and re-edited and a lot of the good content is in the special features and credits.

As with most IMax movies, this movie would be great for science classes and field trips. I wish IMax movies were longer and recycled through the IMax theaters often.
