3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting... July 24, 2012
By scs

...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.

1.0 out of 5 stars one star is about right.... February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unwatchable December 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really excited watching this March 18, 2013

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

1.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING DOCUMENTARY March 10, 2013
By Peter M
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?
