There is something about the 3D in the film’s made for IMAX theatres. They really pop much more than the really theatrical 3D films. The only issue with this film is that it is only 46 minutes like all IMAX features. Nonetheless, this still packs a thrilling 46 mins and is really entertaining. If you are looking for some fantastic 3D mixed with an inspiring story and some great action, then this film is definitely a no-brainer purchase. Since this was originally created for exhibition in IMAX theaters, you know the scale is just so amazing and perfect for 3D Blu-ray.
Official Synopsis: “Rescue 3D” plunges audiences into the grueling, highly technical work of saving lives in the face of a natural disaster and introduces a few of the heroes who step up to make it happen. The film follows first responders as they train at sea, in the air and on the ground preparing for the worst that can happen. And then it does… When a magnitude 7.0 earthquake strikes the Caribbean nation of Haiti, emergency teams jump into action. Within days, a massive effort is launched that brings military and civilian responders and hardware from around the world, and then the real work begins. “Rescue 3D” is an odyssey of real-world disaster and emergency response captured (in 3D) with unprecedented scale and impact.
Image Entertainment delivers this film beautifully on 3D Blu-ray, its 1080p transfer is flawless and really delivers the goods. There is also a standard definition Blu-ray as well for those who don’t have 3D TV’s but I would highly recommend this experience in 3D if possible. The specia features included are not huge but good for what is included. There are interviews with the Rescuers from the film. We get a chance to hear their tales of inspiration and courage. Lastly there are a few trailers included as well.
