It\'s okay... nothing special
Like any nature-log you might see on Animal Planet. But bigger.
The photography is stunning, but somehow I left the theater thinking
that they could have made a much more exciting film. Despite the
killing scenes, it overall had a serene feel.
And what was up with the balloon people and the tribesmen? Quite
tangential and not really belonging with the animal stuff. There wasn\'t
even really much of a connection. At not least one that we saw
I think films like this are a waste of the IMAX medium. I would never
knock natural beauty, but why do you need IMAX for that? For REALLY BIG
natural beauty? No, the wonderful thing about IMAX is the ability to
make you feel like you\'re there. So SCARE me! Put my heart in my mouth!
To see the medium utilized to the fullest, see "NASCAR 3-D.".

I-Max at its Best,"Africa:The Serengeti"
There are more than one element that makes this film a first rate movie
going experience.The only actor assigned is James Earl Jones as
Narrator.His gift of speech is excellent with a presentation that
allows the viewer to participate in a wider,deeper plain than just the
Serengeti,however it is indeed the Serengeti where all of time passes
and we are blessed with an attempt to show life as everlasting,such is
the contribution of the Narrator Voice and its place in the viewing of
this very well made I-Max presentation.The visual aspect is not
entirely subtle,it is more like, very up front with an important
condition and that condition is in the telling of this very dramatic
story.It is not so simple a thing to allow the reader to know what is
actually required but as is pointed out in the narration there is no
remorse when a predator(Cheetah) runs down a Gazelle(very young one)and
provides for its own(of which there are only 1 left of 4 born to this
Cheetah)It is very strong with an accent of survival merely by numbers
and perhaps a little bit of luck.The fittest does not seem to fit as
the wildebeest it is suggested was formed by committee from spare
parts,A very intelligent presentation with much more to come.The
migration of the large size herds is undaunted and though it is
absolutely riveting it is murderous with these almost dumb like animals
literally trampling each other to death.It is quite something to view
as this event unfolds across the plains of the Serengeti.This migration
if you will occurs every year with the onset of the rains in the North
to the Southern extremes ,encompassing the Kenyan and Tanzanian plains
.This is very much both excellent story telling and a documentary as
well.The short history and timeless quality presented provide a survey
that underpins the journey of the wildebeest and it is even a little
bit much to take when it is suggested that herbivores eat grass and
vegetation while carnivores eat herbivores.What is a bit much, there
does not seem to be a element of fitness in there survival but of the
sheer weight of numbers that allow for the species to survive. The
predators seem only to choose there time for there chance as those same
numbers go running by your front door by the thousands in this
historical and timeless journey across the plains of Africa.This by
itself will very much keep your attention,however it is not the only
element that this film possesses which provide for a worthwhile movie
going experience.There is both choral and vocal composition which
accompany the film and may almost catch you off guard as to its place
in the telling of the story,it is very good.This is a no holds barred
idea of life and death that is presented in a timeless quality that can
get to you with a wow.The best part and perhaps the reason why this
film was seen by me was the I-Max format.It is in fact a WOW!The film
opens and the plains of the Serengeti are almost below you as well as
thousands of running Wildebeests.This film from the beginning is a
credit to the storytelling ability that the I-Max format provides
for,wide beautiful vistas stretching the limits of our movie going
experience almost to witness a miracle (though we suggest it is
nature)in the migration of the African wildebeest.This is a very good
movie.It is worthwhile a purchase and even in a humbled presentation
will stand if you will the test of time.I know I just viewed it on my
computer.I have had the pleasure of attending a few I-Max shows and it
would seem that not every presentation works as well as every other
presentation.There was also the stories and that to seemed not always
to work either,however there were exceptions and one which I compare
with Africa:The Serengeti and that is T-Rex:Back To The
Cretaceous.There are many ways to present a dramatic story and though
Africa:The Serengeti is an example of one such way, T-Rex:Back To The
Cretaceous tells a tale with mind you the same kind of unfolding
history but it does it with subtlety and the development of a story
within a story.It too, to me represents an all around presentation in
the I-Max format that is worthy of this entertainment vehicle that we
know as I-Max.Both films are excellent and both are very highly
