The IMAX screen is the ultimate planetarium in the awesome documentary Hubble 3D.
Owen Gleiberman - Entertainment Weekly
Dazzling to look at of course. But such ponderous, cliche-heavy narration.
Neil Genzlinger - New York Times
The daring mission by astronauts to repair and upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope in May 2009 is the perfect subject for a brilliant, thrilling 3-D Imax movie. Such a movie, alas, has yet to be made.
Joel Achenbach - Washington Post
Leonardo DiCaprio, as narrator, sounds very nearly reverent, and not without reason.
Mark Feeney - Boston Globe
If you want an eye-popping cosmic epic, rent Star Trek. If you want interactivity, take the kids to the planetarium.
Aaron Hillis - Village Voice
I've been to two launches, Apollo 11 and Apollo 12, and Hubble 3D is the first film I've seen -- and felt -- that does more than hint at the skeleton-rattling power of those stupendous rockets.
Joe Morgenstern - Wall Street Journal
A movie like this can get you thinking.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
A zero-gravity repair job doesn't sound like a thrilling cinematic spectacle, but this 43-minute film is utterly gripping.
Colin Covert - Minneapolis Star Tribune
The newly resurgent 3D format gets an out-of-this-world showcase in Hubble 3D.
Justin Chang - Variety
Contains some of the most spectacular 3-D footage I've ever seen...
Lou Lumenick - New York Post
Not only deposits you in outer space, but for the first time ever makes the old Star Trek gimmick of "warp speed" a reality.
Kirk Honeycutt - Hollywood Reporter
It's a movie that not only puts you in space but lets you travel through it with a speed and wonder that would make James T. Kirk go a little weak in the knees.
Glenn Whipp - Los Angeles Times
A uniquely thrilling virtual trip that one is unlikely to get to experience first hand--in this lifetime, at least.
Michael Dequina - TheMovieReport.com
Hubble provides a vivid, breathtaking look at our solar system like never before. And it leaves us pondering not just science, but faith.
R. L. Shaffer - IGN DVD
Too brief an exposure to the accomplishments of Hubble-enabled astronomy--but everyone should see it, nonetheless.
Jules Brenner - Cinema Signals
A wonderful film for anyone who still has a passion for watching the skies and wondering what's out there.
Mike McGranaghan - Aisle Seat
This is so jaw-dropping in terms of both content and quality that you won't want to miss a single second by blinking.
Graham Young - Birmingham Post
Awesome spectacle in outer space; pity about Leo's narration.
Don Groves - sbs.com.au
Space lands on Earth in 3-D glory in this kid-friendly docu.
S. Jhoanna Robledo - Common Sense Media
After becoming blase about CGI effects in movies that pretend to take us into other galaxies far far away, we know this is for real
Andrew L. Urban - Urban Cinefile
Star gazing with Leonardo DiCaprio is an awesome out of this world experience. On the giant Imax screen in breathtaking 3D, this is probably the closest you or I will ever come to space travel
Louise Keller - Urban Cinefile
Hubble 3D doesn't weigh in heavily on theories of Big Bangs, evolution, or creation. Instead, it lets the visual data speak for itself.
Russ Breimeier - Christianity Today
... a truly amazing trip ...
Jim Lane - Sacramento News & Review
What sent me over the boohooing edge was an overpoweringly beautiful shot of the astronauts at work with Hawaii 325 miles behind them, shimmering in the blue, blue Pacific.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) - St. Paul Pioneer Press
This, then, is how a star is born.
Linda Cook - Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
Follows seven astronauts on a mission to repair Hubble telescope, and if you don't find the ride absolutely thrilling, you lack imagination!
Jennifer Merin - About.com
Hubble is a wonderful machine, and this is a phenomenal movie.
Gary Wolcott - Tri-City Herald
- National Post
In the end, Hubble is exactly what we watch IMAX for.
Jim Slotek - Jam! Movies
...there are sights here to awe adult as well as child.
Daniel Eagan - Film Journal International
It's an out-of-this-world, real-life adventure for kids of all ages, budding Neil Armstrongs and Ray Bradburys alike.
Marc Savlov - Austin Chronicle
It is not hubris or hyperbole to say that Hubble 3D has to be seen to be believed. In its scant 43 minutes, the film reveals some of the most astonishing images your eyes will ever see. And every single one of them is real.
Brandon Fibbs - BrandonFibbs.com
What does it say about me that when I see a state of the art 45-minute propaganda piece for NASA, I come away convinced I've had a deeply personal philosophical experience?
Jordan Hoffman - UGO
Although most of the film is about repairing the telescope, there are some eye-popping shots of the Universe.
Tony Medley - tonymedley.com
A typical IMAX spectacle of enormous proportions, the film is both a fantastic summary of the knowledge we've gained through Hubble and an often edge-of-your-seat documentary about some of the specialists who've serviced the telescope five times.
Tom Keogh - Seattle Times
Audiences expecting a blissout of swirling galaxies will wonder why so much time is spent on astronauts sweating over screws and bolts.
Nicolas Rapold - Time Out
It's a short film, but a fascinating one that contains breathtaking imagery. It's as simple as that.
Neil Miller - Film School Rejects
