Editor's Note
Originally shot for the stunning IMAX format, SPACE STATION takes viewers on a remarkable trip into outer space. The International Space Station is the destination, and the first stop on the journey is at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Russia. After launching into space, the 220 mile trip ends in the incredible surroundings of the Space Station, where the history of the remarkable piece of engineering is explained, while the cameras wander inside and outside the craft. Fun and educational, this is a wonderful way to learn about a historic part of mankind's journey beyond the earth.

DVD Town 7 of 10
Having only seen a couple of IMAX films, when I finished watching "Space Station", I found it interesting, and boring at the same time. So, all in all, it was an average IMAX experience for me. I?ve only seen the nature type IMAX films until now, so the "Space Station" film sounded like a great change of pace. For someone who has logged a lot of Discovery, History, PBS, and Learning Channel time, documentaries are usually right up my alley. However, with "Space Station" too many scenes are simply shots of the astronauts performing daily duties and routines, all of which are in slow motion, that the film tends to move along at a snail?s pace. While these things may be exciting for the astronauts themselves to perform on a regular basis in space, average viewers watching in their Earthbound home theaters will probably find it pretty boring...I liked IMAX?s "Space Station," although I don?t know that I?d watch it more often than every blue moon. The surround sound is well handled and definitely makes you feel more as though you?re in an IMAX theater. While I had a few issues with this disc, I wouldn?t call it a waste of money. Yet neither would I say it?s the best of the IMAX films. If you?re a space nut, you?ll love "Space Station." If you?re the casual technology or documentary watcher, it?s a decent purchase. - Josh Lambert

San Francisco Chronicle 6 of 10
The latest IMAX movie is as technically impressive as other films bearing the IMAX name. It has the usual amazing depth of field and laserlike clarity...Yet it fails to enchant for a reason that might not be fair, but that's just how it is: We've seen outer space simulated so well in sci-fi movies that the real thing seems like old stuff...Filmed at the Space Station, as it orbits the earth, the documentary mainly allows us to witness the novelty of weightlessness. We see a man who, while shaving, lets his razor go, only to have it wait for him in midair until he retrieves it...We also see spacemen conducting experiments outside the station, in the black yonder, where it looks as lonely as an Elton John song...The people are appealing. They love what they do. They are like kids with huge IQs and big biceps...The best thing in the film, which goes by too quickly and is filmed incompletely, is the scene of the takeoff from inside the space capsule. IMAX, more than any other medium, is capable of rendering that vicarious thrill, of re-creating the sights and sounds and vibrations of breaking through the Earth's atmosphere...With such an unprecedented tool in hand, the movie could and should have given us the whole experience, from countdown to orbit...Instead we only get an exhilarating 30 seconds of it. - Mick LaSalle
