Editorial Reviews

One of nature s most spectacular and perilous wonders, volcanoes with a danger radius of 20 miles, temperatures that can exceed 2,000 degrees and lava traveling up to 150 miles per hour are capable of cataclysmically consuming entire forests or towns and triggering tsunamis, flash floods, earthquakes, mudflows and rock falls. Of hundreds of active volcanoes in the world, over three-quarters are part of the explosive Ring of Fire, a 30,000-mile region encircling the Pacific Ocean. Explore this fiery and earthquake-prone region to learn the causes of eruptions and how 500 million people have adapted to even embraced living in their volatile shadow ... from miners in Chile eking out a perilous living from the sulphur produced in the heart of active volcanoes to macaques monkeys luxuriating in naturally formed hot mineral springs in Japan s remote Hell Valley. Narrated by Robert Foxworth (Transformers, Syriana) and featuring breathtaking cinematography, including extensive aerial photography, from the U.S., Japan, Chile, Indonesia and the Philippines, where at great personal risk the world s top geologists, anthropologists, computer animators and filmmakers spent over seven years documenting this unpredictable and awe-inspiring phenomenon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Imax Film May 30, 2001
By A Customer
I have purchase several Imax DVD'S. I would rank this film better than most(Grand Canyon and Niagra) and below (The Liveing Sea and Alaska. It is more educational but it does not lack spectacular photography. That is one of the reason I buy Imax is to see thing's you do not ordinarely see. Some Imax films try to tell two to four short stories in a film; to me those film's don't work. I do not buy Imax to see pedestrian plot's; I buy to learn and enjoy the photography. This film fits the bill. If your interested in volcanoe's I do not think you could buy a better film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ring of Fire September 6, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I actually bought this for my 4 and 6 year old sons. They love it and it made them interested in volcanoes and earthquakes. They quote it! It is informative and shows more than a US perspective, although a lot of time is spent on San Fransisco, Mount St. Helens. and Hawaii. It also covers a Japan and Indonesia. It entertains and informs. The trailers included are good too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very educational, not so entertaining. August 24, 2000
The standards for documentaries nowadays are very high. You need to succeed not only in the educational side of the story but also in entertaining the viewer. As an example, Greg Macgillivray's work in The Living Seas, Stormchasers or The Magic of Flight does everything in order to keep you on the edge of your seat without loosing the story's edge. Here, you can learn a lot from the sysmic and volcanic activities that determine most aspects of the people that live inside the Pacific Rim. Nevertheless, you never feel quite engaged and/or commited to the story as you do with the formerly referred work. The story starts with a visit to Chile's newly born Navidad crater and leads us through a journey that involves San Francisco, the Aleutian Islands, the coasts of the former U.S.S.R., Japan, Hawaii and Indonesia. Anyhow, some shots are impressive- like San Francisco's earthquake recordings- some are really dull. The video and audio quality are very good, though not impressive. Unless you want to complete your dvd collection, try other stuff such as the discs referred above or Africa-The Serengetti or Imax-Alaska.
