Brimming with details about the complex lives of these fascinating animals, this ocean adventure film takes you into the very heart of the world of Dolphins. Narrated by Pierce Brosnan, music by Sting. Ever wonder "how did they do that?" "The Making of Dolphins,'" shot on High-Definition Video, takes you behind the scenes.

This is a wonderful IMAX presentation. The photography is stunning. You will travel the world as various scientists study their dolphins. Some of the stories are charming, as one researcher has paired up with one dolphin in paticular. His story is very charming, and he and his dolphin meet on a daily basis, and have done so for over seven years. Other people study their life styles, habbits, and their language. This film is perfect for people of all ages.

I am a huge fan of IMAX films in general and this is one of the best. The soundtrack (Sting) is awesome and Mr. Brosnan does a great job narrating. It is inspiring to see these intelligent creatures as they interact with humans and you quickly become unsure of who is the scientist and who is the subject.
Their intelligence combined with the perpetual smile make the dolphins seem more like distant cousins than a different species.
My 6 and 2 year old love this movie as well and the outreach value of science is made self evident. We may truly communicate with other creatures in the universe and won't it be amazing if we find them on our own planet?

Dolphins Is a wonderful film with a wonderful musical score provided by Sting and Steve Wood. We purchased the DVD, and the soundtrack CD - and it is regularly in our CD player. Our kids love it !!! The cinematography is awesome. This film will put you in a good mood on a cold, winter day with it's visuals and island flavored music. You'll also learn so much about these most incredible creatures. I would love to see a sequel to this great documentary. I think it was actually nominated for an Academy Award. Do yourself a favor, buy the DVD and the soundtrack CD !!!

This is a great production about dolphins. It was shot on 70mm film for Imax theaters and converted to DVD. Needless to say, the footage is stunning (and extremely difficult to shoot). 70mm film captures an incredible image and the overall quality of the footage is outstanding.

It is a bit weaker on the content side. Due to the constraints of shooting Imax film, the main feature is not very long (about 40 minutes), and the segments tend to be short as well. Also, this project concentrated more on a scientific angle and emotional appeal than the excellent "Dolphins - Tribes of the Sea" DVD. While there is a certain amount of similarity and overlap between these two DVDs, the focus and content are a bit different, and the extra features on this DVD are as good, if not better, than the main feature itself.

In my "Tribes of the Sea" review I needle this DVD a bit about the female scientist (Kathleen Dudzinski) and her skimpy red swim suit, but that is all in good fun (and I am certainly not complaining!). In all fairness, the footage of Dean Bernal in his skimpy swim suit provides good balance and gender equity. Seriously, though, both sets of footage of these humans swimming with dolphins shows the similarity of grace and motion of our respective body types, and is not at all out of place. In fact, I think it is something that should have been more clearly addressed. This is a highly polished, Hollywood feature production, and one expects that sort of production value in what is basically a promotional piece for our oceans.

One of the things that bothered me about this DVD was that it seemed to focus on people more than the dolphins. Not a bad thing if you want to create identification and connection in your audience, but not something I cared much about.

Yes, I am being a bit dramatic but honestly, this movie changed my life! I remember first seeing it in the Imax theater and being completely blown away by it. I have always been fond of dolphins but this movie made me fall absolutely in love with them and I have been donating to The Dolphin Communication Project (one of the movie's main focus) ever since!

The movie contains extensive knowledge about dolphins and offers insights into the world of dolphins that many books or documentaries have yet to touch upon. As mentioned earlier, the Dolphin Communication Project is a project that explores how dolphins communicate - they analyze the types of sounds that dolphins make, but also insightfully analyze their physical communication, kind of like a dolphin sign language.

I saw this movie with the camp I was a counselor for and every kid in the theater was mesmerized by this movie. The information is insightful enough for adults, but also given in a way that let's kids understand it as well. VERY KID FRIENDLY!!!

The last thing that drew me into this movie was the soundtrack that is done by Sting. I am a huge fan of Sting and I loved all his pieces that played throughout the movie. It is soulful and soothing and it is a perfect accessory to this movie.

I guarantee that you will walk away from this movie with a new found love for dolphins. Ever since watching it, I have been dreaming of swimming with dolphins and some day I hope that dream can come true!
