User Reviews: Just watched the IMAX 3D movie. Trust me, don’t do it any other way.
Imagine ten of thousands of fusion thrusters are pushing our planet away from a dying sun on a IMAX screen. The visual effect is impressive and goes well with the story. The story is not everyday Hollywood style: Superhero saves the day; everyone else is there to give a round of applause. This movie brings a serious question to the audience: What are you gonna do facing an unavoidable, irresistible disaster to our civilization? All characters in the movie are ordinary people and everyone gives their answer with shining humanity. Against all the odds no one gives in without a good fight. The chance of success is close to zero but they choose hope. All the efforts add up and make impossible nothing. It is a Sci-Fi fan’s feast you dont want to miss.
