The Greatest Places
They are the greatest places in the world... and some of the most difficult to reach. From icy Greenland to the hot, high dunes of Africa's Namib Desert, from the raging Iguazu Falls in South America... View more >

Booooo, I hated this movie! We had to see it on a Social Studies field trip and it ws so boring, I don't think anyone in my whole section was watching it. Who cares about Mongolian sheep or how that island was formed. I give it two big thumbs down!

I saw this movie today at the IMAX Theatre and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in travel, geography or other cultures. I have been to many places in the world but not to any of those in WGP. I always enjoy travelling even if it is only vicariously. This movie gave one a very good feeling of actually being there. As an amateur photographer I especially enjoyed the photography. I looked to see how some of the shots were set up and at what time of day and with what lighting. Some of them were really awesome. My husband was with me and he said that at the end of the movie he had a headache because of the frequent change in shots. He said none stayed on for more than 4 or 5 seconds and it was difficult to try to keep up I get motion sickness VERY bad so I took my standard medication an hour before and was able to stay for the whole movie and even have dinner afterwards. The first time I went to the IMAX I didn't even think about getting sick but after theintro with the Milwaukee scenes I had to close my eyes for the entire movie that followed. I tried to peek a few times but it made me feel sicker, so I stopped. I stayed because I was with my girl friend and she really wanted to see the movie. So, I certainly give this movie 2 thumbs up.

I never knew the "Greatest Places" on earth were this boring. Far from the best Imax my wife and I have seen. Closer to the worst. Actually we enjoyed the helecopter ride and previews of other Imax films better than the feature itself.
**1/2 out of *****.
