...but not for those expecting a 2012 3D presentation. While the content is well thought out and intelligent, it's at the forefront of 3D imagery. With the exception of the 'title' screen, you must train your eye interactively to appreciate the 3D presentation. No big deal? It takes some repeated effort to refocus each time you look away from the imagery. Not what you're probably used to, like me! So be prepared for an extremely interesting documentary and a first gen 3D experience.

If I could give this zero stars, I would. I purchased this anticipating a 3D view of Mars from multiple perspectives. What I received was a collection of images whose 3D effect was so grossly shifted as to be unwatchable. After about 10-15 minutes of attempting to watch it, I gave up as my eyes were watering heavily.

This is NOT a DVD that I would recommend to anyone.

I own several other NASA and space related 3D discs, so I thought this might make a nice addition to my collection. I must not have seen the review where it says 'Viking mission from the 1970's' because the images and even the presenter are from that era. lol....the pictures are pretty much just rocks from the surface of Mars, with incredibly annoying electronic 'music' in the background. I would say the sounds are more sound effects than music, but whatever you call it I found it annoying. I am a huge electronic music fan, so maybe my tastes are spoiled by the likes of Tomita, Vangelis and Larry Fast. I could not watch this disc for more than a few minutes, as the pictures are so hard to focus on it was distracting. This should be used at Gitmo to torture the prisoners now that water boarding is out. lol.......I would have to agree with the reviewer that said this was 'unwatchable', only I would add 'unlistenable' as well. And for the people that gave this 5 stars, either they are on crack or they work for the company that produced this junk.

It was really not an excited 3D video, the quality of 3D scenes was quite poor and the pictures were not plastic at all.

I found this film to be boring most of the time. I realise that the images travelled across space to get here but surely they could have been better.We were only given a small selection of the actual photos taken and not all were of interest to me.Surely NASA has thousands of better images?

Mars in 3D is a great film about the martian planet. It contains images taken by Viking I and II. Its a great example of a restoration done by a team of people who generally are interested in the space program and have a deep respect for it. It is great to see these images come to life after 30+ years. The soundtrack is incredible to boot. It has the original music composed for the film but it is in 5.1 surround now and sounds breath taking in your home theater. This is highly recommended for people interested in space, 3D imagery, and electronic music alike!
