Don't buy this disc from M+L in Germany-THIS IS NOT A 3-D DISC! The only place you'll find 3-D mentioned is in the title used to sell from M+L! Nowhere on the box,front or back says 3-D.I opened the package and the disc doesn't say 3-D!!! What is really sad is the Ad from Imax on the inside cover that shows this and seven other Imax titles as NOT 3-D!!! The Imax ad goes on to show 5 titles that WAS released in 3-D all having a red 3-D next to those titles that ARE in 3-D! The ad on the inside is for only region 0 German Imax releases.Clearly the packaging from Imax is Germany in correct : this is Bluray 1080 disc.NOT A 3-D disc! I'm not interested in a 2-D version,if I was I'd get the 4K+ Bluray version in the USA region A.I just went on the internet to "Rocky Mountain Express"movie website to find this movie IS NOT IN 3-D ,see for yourself search RockyMoutainExpressMovie to go to website.This purchase from M+L in Germany was a big waste of time for me.Wrongfully advertised by other sellers too,be careful,3-D collectors!
I saw this film when it was in IMAX theaters. Absolutely fantastic documentary, I'm a bit of a railfan and absolutely love the story, and the honor this film gave to remember those who died building Canada's Transcontinental railroad. Much like the U.S. version, it's untold stories are now in film. Well worth the price of admission.
Our family saw this in IMAX and watched on Amazon Video. It was perfect for us and our autistic kids. It's beautifully filmed with close-up detail on the workings of the train. The narration is excellent and never intrusive. The music is also well matched to the film. Incredible Canadian scenery too. Really enjoyable and highly recommended.
