  • Exciting and Moving

    May 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: breathtaking scenery, good message, Imax environment
    Cons: Not long enough!

  • Seafood for the eyes and the mind

    Apr 3, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Spellbinding cinematography, sunny vibe.
    Cons: Doesn't answer the big questions of dolphin intelligence.

    Summary: IMAX cameras go underwater for this relaxing look at the charismatic marine mammals. With sunswept ocean locations, it's pleasantly diverting both as a science lesson and as a tropical travelogue. Actor Pierce Brosnan narrates this ... read more

    Pros: Images are wonderful and the music is great!
    Cons: Can be slow in some parts, very educational more than entertaining

    Summary: The closest IMAX to where we live is in San Simeon, home to Hearst Castle. Most of the time they show the host film, "Building the Dream" which is about the building of the castle. However we do get the occasional visiting feature. What a joy to have ... read more

  • The way IMAX should be used...Dolphins, The Movie

    Jun 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Information seemed to be accurate and fact based.
    Cons: The movie didn't seem to be more than an hour and a half long.

    Summary: While vacationing in Virginia Beach recently I had my first IMAX experience. In case you have been living in a closet, IMAX is a movie theatre. What makes it special? The screen is something like 13 stories tall and 6 stories wide. Now that's what I ... read more

  • Big, But Boring

    Apr 3, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Big screen dolphins, some decent photography.
    Cons: Very boring at times. Fails to utilize the large format.

    Summary: The new IMAX film Dolphins fails in the same way that many IMAX films fail, in that it does not utilize the giant film format to it's full potential. What is the use of going to all the expense of producing a film in the large format if you ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Underwater sound and sight
    Cons: Too much talking

    Summary: I am a huge fan of IMAX and have seen everything that has been released (at least once!). My expectation with Dolphins was that it would be a peaceful sensory experience and I could tune out above water noise while floating undersea. But my expectation ... read more

    Feb 27, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautifully shot and filmed.
    Cons: Not enough dolphin footage, at times a little too abrupt.

    Summary: This film, for of all, was beautifully shot and filmed. The dolphins, the stars of the show, were beautiful. So why didn't they get more footage? I would like to have seen dolphins on the screen the entire film. Instead, there were a lot of people ... read more

    Feb 2, 2001 by

    Cons: Not enough "fun" stuff, but more scientific information.

    Summary: Wow, what can I say about this movie? It was wonderful! Dolphins--the name really says it all. This IMAX movie is basicly telling you all you could know about dolphins in 45 minutes. There was a great deal of scientific information about them, but ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Many aspects of dolphin life were covered
    Cons: It needed a bit more computer graphics.
