Audience Member This is an incredibly sexist film: the guys are jumping off airplanes, climbing the world's tallest trees, hanging from helicopters, surfing huge waves... The only female featured in the film is raising a baby otter. Women raising babies. What's new? Wish my daughter hadn't seen this. I will also mention that there are no people of color, as if Latinos weren't the majority in California. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Wow. Once again, MacGillivray utilizes IMAX format film to produce stunning shots, and lots of them. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member If this is what I think it is, this is an IMAX film, and a very good one at that!!
