Leonardo DiCaprio narrates this documentary about the Hubble Space Telescope. The film follows seven astronauts on a risky mission to save the telescope that has the ability to capture highly detailed images, providing new information about space and time. The footage includes views of Saturn's aurora, the Helix Nebula and the Andromeda Galaxy, as well as other phenomena of the universe.

This does have some great 3D footage in the highest HD quality - as well as a very good surround soundtrack and interesting commentary from Leonardo di Caprio. But after 45 minutes it's all over and just feels too short - you want more and the two extras are only in 2D and not that interesting.

The footage is made up from two distinct sources - the NASA footage of astronauts working to service and repair the orbiting Hubble telescope and actual footage of images created from Hubble, of far-away gas clouds and galaxies. The former is interesting and the shots in space of the astronauts working above the earth are truly spectacular - the 3D imaging really makes it feel like you are there.

Even more spectacular, are the two sequences that have you flying through light years of space to see stars forming in dust clouds and far-off galaxies that are billions of light years away. However these are just not enough, you really feel there must be more that they could have shown. The astronaut training and preparation was stretched out and the really stunning images were held to the end.

Overall I am glad to have seen these images and some are definitely worthy of many replays - but the sequences of Hubble data, while being the true highlights, are also the briefest - leaving you feeling slightly short-changed.

I would say that this has to get four stars for the sheer quality of the stunning images - but maybe 2-3 stars for value and time given.

For the fans of astronomy and 3D viewing, this is just great fun to watch. Loved the extras, and if combined with a decent sound system, the experience gets even better. The take off of the space shuttle is simply breath taking, along with the later view of our amazing planet.

An interesting subject where the 3D puts you right there in a place you could never be in real life. Its like being an astronaut yourself.

Absolutely amazing what us meer mortals can achieve, but unfortunately its only 44 mins long.
More images from hubble and trips through the stars would have been excellent.

A beautiful film in 3D Made me really feel I was in orbit watching this DVD through my Cinemizer glasses. I'll watch it over and over again. Spectacular footage. Great sound too.

Not enough 3D

Some great scenes on this disc, however far too much is 2D in a window which is 1/4 the size of the normal screen, probably lucky if you get 20 minutes in true 3D. All of the Hubble images are 2D with a 3D 'star light effect', can't fool me!

Shame as I don't believe it had to be like this.

Also, it felt rushed to me and it could have taken a little longer during some of the visits the shuttle made to the Hubble.

Worth the watch but it's not an item you will watch again and again and it certainly doesn't show off the 3D magic.

Though I do appreciate that those with 3D are in the minority, I suspect that it is the back of many of your minds that one day...! Also of course most of the 3D blu-rays come with a 2D version so you can watch now and upgrade later. I have recently bought `IMAX HUBBLE 3D' which everyone I have shown it to have been spellbound by the images in space and the trip via pictures captured by Hubble to the farthest reaches of the solar system and other galaxies. The film is narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio and follows the 2009 flight of the shuttle Atlantis, and the dangerous final mission to repair successfully the Hubble telescope. Originally shown in 3-D IMAX screens, with much of the footage shot by the astronauts, this looks incredibly good shown on my Panasonic 6000 projector viewed on an 8ft home cinema screen. If you sit really close to the screen you could almost believe you had your own Imax experience at home. The 3D images are superb and it makes you really appreciate the incredibly difficult technical achievement of establishing and maintaining a Space Station. The film also gives a feel of what it is like to be blasted into space and life on-board the Station. The Hubble telescope has given mankind a tremendous leap in knowledge in the search for the origins and extent of the universe. Only complaint, it is at 40mins the film is a bit on the short side. I thought this `Hubble Imax' was a better purchase than the somewhat similar `Imax Space Station', because of the additional superb 3D images from the Hubble telescope.

This has to be the the best 3D experience I have ever seen , the documentary is very informative and seeing the universe in such clarity is a must for any astronomy fan
