    The IMAX screen is the ultimate planetarium in the awesome documentary Hubble 3D.

    Dazzling to look at of course. But such ponderous, cliche-heavy narration.

    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.

    Leonardo DiCaprio, as narrator, sounds very nearly reverent, and not without reason.

    If you want an eye-popping cosmic epic, rent Star Trek. If you want interactivity, take the kids to the planetarium.

    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.

    A movie like this can get you thinking.

    A zero-gravity repair job doesn't sound like a thrilling cinematic spectacle, but this 43-minute film is utterly gripping.

    The newly resurgent 3D format gets an out-of-this-world showcase in Hubble 3D.

    Contains some of the most spectacular 3-D footage I've ever seen...

  • Kirk Honeycutt Hollywood Reporter (Top Critic)
    Not only deposits you in outer space, but for the first time ever makes the old Star Trek gimmick of "warp speed" a reality.

    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.

    A uniquely thrilling virtual trip that one is unlikely to get to experience first hand--in this lifetime, at least.

    Hubble provides a vivid, breathtaking look at our solar system like never before. And it leaves us pondering not just science, but faith.

    Too brief an exposure to the accomplishments of Hubble-enabled astronomy--but everyone should see it, nonetheless.

    This is so jaw-dropping in terms of both content and quality that you won't want to miss a single second by blinking.

    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

    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

    Hubble 3D doesn't weigh in heavily on theories of Big Bangs, evolution, or creation. Instead, it lets the visual data speak for itself.

    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.
