RESCUE plunges audiences into the grueling, highly technical work of saving lives in the face of a natural disaster and introduces a few of the heroes who step up to make it happen. Filmed for giant screen exhibition, the film follows first responders as they train at sea, in the air and on the ground preparing for the worst that can happen. And then it does... When a magnitude 7.0 earthquake strikes the Caribbean nation of Haiti, emergency teams jump into action. Within days, a massive effort is launched that brings military and civilian responders and hardware from around the world, and then the real work begins. RESCUE is an odyssey of real-world disaster and emergency response captured (in 3D) with unprecedented scale and impact.

Rescue 3D, centers around the U.S Air Force's relief efforts after the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
The opening shots are beautiful in 3D,offering a few moments that made me feel these objects where right in the room with me. When it comes to the pop out factor, Rescue certainly has its fair share and the effect of it is done rather nicely.
The biggest drawback to this film is that theirs quiet a few shot where the absence of 3D is noticeable. The pay off though,comes with the fact that you'll watch one or two scenes back to back with little to no 3D,then the next thing you know a great 3D shot comes around the corner. Another pass i'll give this movie,is that some of the 2D shots look so awesome by themselves it really didn't bother me that not all of them where 3D. I never came away with the feeling I had been robbed of a 3D moment.
The next positive I'll give this film is that it's filled with trailers (theirs about ten or twelve of them) and the good news is most of them are in 3D as well. So it's kind of nice to test run some other Imax 3D films before I commit to buying them.
In the end what makes Rescue 3D so great isn't just the price (fifteen dollars),it's the quality of the 3D you're getting for the price. I've seen 3D not pulled off as well in other films for a much higher price.
I would highly recommend this,not just for the price,but for the content.
The film establishes each person being talked about from a woman who pilots planes for the Air Force to a fire fighter who wants to help people. We get a glimpse into the daily routine of their lives and what they do there. About halfway through that changes and each one finds their way into helping the survivors of the earthquake that took place in Haiti.
The film then displays the contributions of each to the rescue mission that went on there. When we hear about these sorts of disasters these days it seems all we hear about is how someone didn't do enough or didn't do it fast enough. Watching this film you get the idea that doing it fast isn't always the answer but doing it right is. In some cases, as in this situation, you could see that word got out as quick as possible and the response was immediate. In some cases it was days before the actual help could arrive but it was on the way.
While there aren't dramatic instances on display in this film such as a man carrying a baby from a burning building, the efforts of each one of these people do show an amazing amount of courage and dedication to helping others. It would be nice if the world we knew had more of that and less of people not asking for help because they want it but because they need it. The selflessness on display by those involved here is worth plenty of applause.
The movie itself is breathtaking.Read more ›

As with most IMAX 3D transfers, this one looks very good. Clear, sharp image and lots of depth. Almost no 2D content in the mix. Read morePublished 7 months ago by A Cosmic Hipp-ster
