Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Avatar might have taken 3-D to another level, but this fascinating documentary proves the technology is satisfyingly applicable to nonfiction films, too. Space, already an awesome cinematic subject, seems, in fact, more wondrous with it, turning a world that most can only imagine into something almost palpable. Screened only in IMAX theatres, the 3-D effect is heightened, making for an experience that's part thrill ride, part astronomy lesson, and all entertainment. (Leonardo DiCaprio's narration echoes the audience's amazement.) At 43 minutes, the film is hyper-efficient, and we long for a little more insight into the astronauts themselves. And if only the 3-D effect would stay stable at all angles; one wrong shift can make the images seem wobbly through the special glasses viewers need, but these are small quibbles for a straightforwardly awesome film.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
