Follow astronauts up into space as they strive to get the powerful telescope prepared for a fantastic journey of discovery. Witness the birth of a star, and experience the awesome power of a supernova in stunning IMAX 3-D. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Good but Lacking Content
Posted by: RandomReviewer from: Phoenix on
This was a good 3-d movie experience. The resolution of the scenes in space, including the shuttle launch, and various space walks was impeccable and eye capturing. The Telescope and shuttle bay appeared to be jutting out of the screen.
I was hoping for more space imagery (galaxies, stars, etc.) in 3-d. However, they focused more on the mission to upgrade and repair the hubble rather than the imagery it captured over the years. There was 10 or 15 minutes of space imagery, and could have definitely used more. Overall, a 45 minute video is kind of lacking for a $30 price tag.
Nonetheless, it was mind blowing and captivating ... good for all audiences.

Putting the Awe and Mystery back into Science
Posted by: rodpera from: Austin, TX on
There have been a few IMAX documentaries about mankind's exploration of space. Some have relied on the novelty alone ("Hey, we got an IMAX camera all the way up here....and it weighs nothing!") and some have relied on the sheer brilliance of the mission (one memorable line in "Roving Mars" described the difficulty of landing an unmanned machine there as equivalent to a basketball player throwing a ball from Los Angeles, across the US and it going through a hoop in Madison Square Garden [NYC] without touching the rim).
"IMAX: Hubble" is something else entirely, it conveys the jaw-dropping awe of being able to peer so far(out) into space that we are actually time-traveling, looking back to the beginnings of our Universe. To actually see a "space-womb" where stars are born.
This movie sparks the imagination and wakes up parts of the viewers brain like few things can, and it does it very well. A must see, must own, and must share with anyone you call family or friend. By understanding the larger universe more, we get to know ourselves and each other better, too. Don't ask how that works, it just does.

I saw this documentary at the IMAX and I was just blown away. This actually brought tears to my eyes, seeing our incredible, awe-inspiring galaxy and beyond in immersion 3D.
Anyone who gives this film a negative is just out of their minds. Anyone who has heard of this knows it's not a fictional film. Don't know the show because you didn't look up what the video actually was.
This is a beautiful exploration of the cosmos. For the average person, this is as close to being a part of space you will ever get.
It was also informative with decent narration by Leo DeCaprio, and I'm not really a fan of his.
This should be required viewing by all of Congress so they can realize their absolute folly in shuttering manned space exploration.

Great visuals, well-shot by IMAX.

For some reason, real 3D footage impresses me more than CG to see people and events in an immersed real setting. Sony does an excellent job filming to put the viewer in awe of the vastness of the cosmos, and in telling the story of the crew who make it possible for us to see and marvel. Absolutely beautiful 3D visuals and includes lots of bonus content too.

A Great Movie for 3D and Space lovers
Posted by: samersig from: Denver, CO on
I'm a huge fan of 3D movies and since I work in the space field... I LOVE THIS VIDEO. I got it on sale for $20, which is a very good price for any 3D movie. I highly recommed this, I plan to have my kids watch it for educational purposes.

This was a b'day gift for my son-in-law. I watched with the family. The 3-D effects were really great. Color detail was good. The movie was about astronauts getting ready and going into space. All of this was excellent.

The 3D DVD is just fine; package is not complete
Posted by: Curn from: Saint Joseph, MI on
The I Max Hubble 3D BluRay DVD is just fine. The problem is the picture as shown in your site indicates the package should contain a BluRay 3D DVD, BluRay DVD and a Digital Copy. All I got was a BluRay 3D DVD and the other 2 are missing! Very deceptive picture in your website. I really like an explanation!

This movies is truly amazing! It's always sold out online, I was able to find it at a local BB store. The 3D effects in this movie is hands down one of the best. It's short and sweet. Buy it if you can. AMAZING!!

See astronauts fix the Hubble telescope and then see footage of the Hubble zoom through galaxies, I was impressed. The Space Station IMAX 3D is good too.

This is some really good stuff. From the Shuttle launch to the pictures of the galaxy shot from Hubble. I have watched it at least 3 times already.
