Editorial Reviews

Journey into Amazing Caves is a visceral, suspenseful expedition with a new breed of scientists who boldly explore places once thought off-limits to human presence, let alone IMAX cameras. Join Dr. Hazel Barton and Nancy Aulenbach as they travel to unique and forbidding ice caves in Greenland, underwater caves in the Yucatan, terrestrial caves in the Grand Canyon and other spectacular locations. You will wriggle through tiny, twisting passages, swim through flooded underground vaults, drop into gleaming blue labyrinths of ice, and enter a world so extreme the microscopic creatures who live there are called extremophiles. For those compelled to push their limits in the world's most hostile environments, the risk of fatal danger and thrill of new discovery are the everyday factors that make cave exploration such an awe-inspiring experience. Narrated by Liam Neeson, with music by The Moody Blues.

This is the most misleadlingly (is that a word?)titled movie I have ever seen. Amazing caves? What caves? The first 15 minutes of this reletively short 40 minute film don't take place in any cave. All they do is talk about them. Then when they finally enter a cave they are there for a few seconds. The few and far between cave scenes are interspersed with lots kayaking scenes, laboratory scenes, and classroom scenes. Was this film funded by the pharmasutical industry? The lead scientist in the film is always saying how she does this cave dwelling stuff to find exrtremophiles that will create new cures for diseases. Blechh! I wanted a movie about caves that showed beautiful caves. Granted, the latter half of the film provided more cave time but it was too little too late with too much of an environmental-disease-curing propaganda feel to it than I could stomach. It should have been titled "How To Search for New Cures in a Few Caves while Being Environmentally Conscious." Somehow I don't think that title would have sold many IMAX tickets or DVD's.

This video was a disappointment. I purchased the video to see beautiful cave scenery, not someone hanging off the side of a mountain. The focus should have been on the caves and the scenery within, NOT on the people making the video. The title was very misleading, plus one disk, you have to play on a computer which I did not know at time of purchase. I though I was buying a DVD video with two disk (must check product description closely). Wish I could return it for a refund.

The DVD is magnificient but the WMV Disc is problematic

all the demos work fine but the full lenght movies 720 format and 1080 formats will only work if the computer is "fully" compatible with the "windows" DRM system.

if your video card or your monitor or your soundcard is not an approved piece of hardware be prepared to be dissapointed or fork out a lot of money for the DRM approved replacements

I am one of the Dissapointed ones because the sound card built in to the motherboard of the computer is not acceptable to the movie DRM

This is a very-very good documentary with vivid and extraordinary images of our surrounding nature. It's a fact that I like caves but in this case the item's title is well establish. These are amazing caves, beauty sites, minde-blowing views... a dangerous but irresistible world of beautifullness.

Being a caver myself I found this video very inspiring. I recommend it to everyone. There are many movies around about caves and Hollywood doesn't do justice to any cave. If you ever want to go caving go to people who are responsible, but watch this video first.

Without question, this may be some of the most spectacular filming I have ever seen. I don't think filming of even the space station is more spectacular. Unfortunately, one only sees about ten minutes of such spectacular scenes. I saw the IMAX 38-minute version, but not the DVD version for sale on Amazon. I will probably get the DVD at some point, just for archival purposes.

There must have been a lot of film left on the "cutting floor" as they say. I believe the DVD has a "how the documentary was made" feature. As usual with these documentaries, one wonders how the cameraman/woman got to the various locations to get such incredible shots. I assume that in some cases, the two cavers set up the camera and then re-enacted their entrance to the cave. If so, I am amazed with what a hand-held (?) camera can capture. There was no suggestion that a third camera person went ahead of them.

But I digress. Ten minutes of incredible footage; incredibly juvenile story line. Caving to find bacterial to cure human disease is too ... blechhhh - as someone else posted.

From a teacher's point of view...worthwhile for the student generation. I saw this in the IMAX theatre and encouraged my 5th graders to go see it with their families. There is great info in there to complement the science curriculum and therefore it is an excellent addition to any life or earth science teacher's bag of classroom extras. It is full of scenery that most 10 year olds will not likely encounter in the real world and shows them where a science career could take them. The narrators encourage kids to keep up with the research via their websites...a productive use of time if a child surfs the net anyway. The photography was breathtaking...I wish it were longer.

I saw the movie at IMAX, and I found it pretty enjoyable from a standpoint of "IMAX thrills", that kind of dizzy feeling you get when the camera pans and rotates in open space. Its not one of the best IMAX movies but better than the last couple I've seen. Its true the plot is rather lame, but I don't go to IMAX for plot, I go for that vertigo effect. I can see why people would be disappointed watching it on a small screen. I don't know why you'd want to view an IMAX anywhere but in an IMAX theater. If you can see it that way, its worth going to, although more caves would make it even better.
