Editorial Reviews

The partnership with NASA and IMAX films continues with a tour of the next step in space exploration: the International Space Station (ISS). Sixteen countries helped build this giant station (still being built upon the film's release in 2004). We see the first building blocks being constructed, including shots from inside the slick NASA shuttle launches to the friendly informalities of the Russian program. The crystal-clear pictures of the station and the Earth are the best aspects of this film. The entertaining footage delivers human elements, but sometimes the carefulness of experimentation makes for boring photography; a test of a super-cool jet pack has the astronaut moving mere inches. To the film's benefit, the narrator is Tom Cruise with a script tailored to his strong suits (the first line of "What an incredible sight!" is vintage Cruise). The film is also so light on its feet with a nice dose of music, including "Up on the Roof" and the Talking Heads "Naive Melody," that it makes up for the staginess of some of the scenes. The film was shown in 3-D in theaters but only 2-D for home video. --Doug Thomas

Product Description

SPACE STATION is the first cinematic journey to the International Space Station (ISS), where audiences can experience for themselves life in zero gravity aboard the new station. The audience blasts off into space with the astronauts and cosmonauts from Florida's Kennedy Space Center and Russia's Baikonur Cosmodrome to rendezvous with their new home in orbit 220 miles above Earth. SPACE STATION is a story of challenges, setbacks and triumphs and ultimately, the shared international victory of men and women whose dreams exceed the limits of life on this Earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best IMAX movie ever! June 25, 2002
A Kid's Review
Space Station 3D is my favorite IMAX movie ever! I saw it at the aquarium's IMAX 3D theater. It was great! The opening credits are very cool in 3D. It feels like they are forming in front of you and moving back. The narrator starts out showing you the real ISS. Then it moves to a very cool simulation of how to use a jet pack that will save you if you get away from the station that astronauts are using. Then we see a very loud (thanks, IMAX corp.) rocket launch that sends the station's first module, Zarya, into orbit. Then we see the shuttle Discovery conect the Unity Node to Zarya with help from the shuttle crew. Then, the narrator talks about recycling air and water in space. The Zvesda module, that contains the technology to recycle these resorces in space, gets conected. Now the first crew is ready to come up. The crew includes two Russians and an American as comander. The comander has a while to get used to being away from his wife, yet he is very proud. The crew goes on the shuttle, (that we see launch) and they go to the station. Most of the scenes after that are about living in space. We get to see astronauts shave, eat, drink and sleep in space. We also get to see two laboratories get attached to the station and the narrator also talks about how the Space Station can come in use in the future in the end. All in all, I recommend it as the best IMAX film EVER!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting entertainment!! October 7, 2003
I saw this film twice in the IMAX theatre at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. It's absolutely phenomenal. The narration, camera work, direction and editing are very impressive. Some launch scenes will leave you scrambling for cover they are so real! Some shots of Earth from the Space Station are breathtaking. At times I felt as if I were there outside the Space Station looking down toward Earth. I strongly recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A loving tribute to the Space Station October 17, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Space Station", IMAX's latest space video, is Tom Hanks loving tribute to the ISS now in orbit. Don't look here for controversy about the program, or to a debate about whether it should have been built in the first place. Instead, it is a visually spectacular tribute both to the astronauts (who did much of the filming) and to the multi-billion dollar, multi-national project itself. There is nothing in here that would upset the NASA PR machine.

Having said this, it is a film to sit back and enjoy the awesome footage taken both from the inside and from the outside of the station. The visual quality of the film looks good even on a small television and must have been awesome on the big IMAX screens. One especially memorable scene was when they placed a camera (too) close to the Russian Proton rocket that launched the first station component. The flame, roar and flying debris (some of which nearly destroyed the $40,000 IMAX camera) attest to the power of that large rocket. Interior shots of the station show the large amount of internal space, far more than the little small spacecraft that we sent into orbit and on the moon, and the sheer joy of floating around weightless.

A good supplemental film described how they made the film, including interviews with a former NASA astronaut who participated in the filming.

Overall, though it is more a NASA-sponsored PR piece than a penetrating look at the station program, the visual spectacle make it a must buy for any space fan

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing pictures April 13, 2009
Space Station/Mission to Mir Imax [Blu-ray] The pictures in space are absolutely amazing. Strongly recommend this Blu-Ray to anyone who has an interest in the space program. My husband worked at Boeing during the Saturn V program, including making flight parts for the original Lunar Rover. We follow the space program with a keen interest, and found this DVD to be most informative and entertaining.

3.0 out of 5 stars Space Station 3D-new release in 3D November 16, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I just received this BluRay 3D, and it played in 3D without hitch on a Sony S770 player. I was disappointed that it is only a 47min film but cost over $40. If I had noted the length vs cost I may have deferred the buy until the cost comes down. I do not think this movie is worth the high cost-it should be no more than other, like the $30 range.

The 3D effects are very good and I was not disappointed. For any one having interest in space-this film is captivating. One reviewer said his disk did not play in 3D for the first 3.5 minutes. I frankly did not notice this issue until I read the review, but there are several portions of the film where it appears there is very little 3D effect-so it appears it was intentional vice a 'glitch'. The sound was also very good

Many parts of the film go into the space station itself, when I would have rather seen more film of the earth

Based on my research, this film was shot in 3D (not a convert). Gave it 3 stars due to short film, some none 3D portions, and cost of the film

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply breathtaking October 15, 2002
By A Customer
I saw this thrice in the IMAX theaters. The direction, narration and photography was simply astounding. The film beautifully chronicles the activities of building and maintaining this amazing piece of equipment in space. The film has several blast off sequences that will leave you in awe. If you are even the slightest space buff you will be mesmerized.
I am keenly awaiting the release of this film on DVD.
