"Space Station 3-D"

2002, NR, 46 min. Directed by Toni Myers. Narrated by Tom Cruise.

REVIEWED By Robert Faires, Mon., May 20, 2002

Given the amount of cinematic science fiction in the last quarter-century, modern moviegoers may feel they've seen it all where space travel is concerned. But Space Station 3-D provides a fresh and intensely personal experience of the final frontier. Employing footage shot by actual astronauts and cosmonauts using IMAX 3D cameras, it puts you there 220 miles above the earth, inside the International Space Station, and outside it, too. Breathtaking vistas of the planet below and the cosmos beyond, coupled with detailed looks at life in zero gravity and the testimony of an international crew of astronauts, revive our sense of the wonder and the danger that go into every voyage into space. Robert Faires
