Loved the story, scenery, old photos, and the history. It was a gorgeous movie to watch. The only downside is that I wanted to see more old footage and also my husband mentioned that they did show a lot of footage of the front of the train, haha, which is true.

Months ago I saw the ad of Rocky Mountain Express on a side of a bus. Finally I went to see it, and man oh man, I was blown away. The beauty of the quality of the film, images, sounds & vision, was more than fantastic. I rarely cry (except the day my son was born), but this film moved me so much I did. Just seeing and hearing the Peter & Paul & Mary song 500 miles is worth the ticket entrance. Bravo to the company that made the film. I hope you get a Canadian and American Oscar for Best Documentary.

My favourite part of the movie is the shot of it crossing the Lethbridge Viaduct in Lethbridge Alberta! It's the highest and longest steel rail trestle of its kind in the world!

The true Canadian story. A beautiful historic story, the filming was fantastic, the music good, the scenery a mind blower. Far too short as I could have sat there for hours.

I really enjoyed this movie. You almost feel like you are on that train enjoying every moment of the breathtaking scenery. The only negative, is that it is brief and does not go into depth to explore the most interesting aspects of the subject matter. It will definitely inspire people to research the history of Canada's railway in more depth.

Very well done. I would like to know who sang the song 500 miles for the movie. Thanks.

I went [...] last weekend to see this spectacular historic movie. It is so beautiful for the eye and the Trans Canada railroad history is amazing. The HD image at full screen IMAX size is a masterpiece. Those men are heroes. Either you like trains, beautiful Rockies mountains or simply a true story, you will like this movie. I recommend it.

Wonderful film. Deft touch. It would have been rewarding enough just for the remarkably beautiful helicopter shots. An amazing story - it is almost beyond imagination what that generation did to cut through those mountains. And a train-lover's dream come true. A wonderful ride.

This is a truly great film! Any one who is interested in history, trains and the building of this country, it's a must see. Great photography, fantasic views the likes of which are rary seen today. It more than worth the time and money to see it at least once.

LOVED it! I actually went and saw it 3 times as there is so much information to process. Very well made and it captures right from the start. Now I want to experience it for real... but know I can not.

This is the best film about a railway subject that I have ever seen. Every Canadian should see this to appreciate the courage it took to build the CPR and thereby complete the creation of the Canadian nation. Stephen Low knows Canada's railways well, as well as their history and undeniable importance to Canada, even to this day. He is to be congratulated for telling this story in such a masterful fashion, especially in the wonderful IMAX format (a great Canadian invention)

Simply one of the best IMAX films ever made, with breathtaking photography and direction by Stephen Low. I'd give it an 11 out of 10! This important story is told with outstanding historical context, while remaining both dramatic and captivating. The music is incrediblly beautiful and inspiring and the sound of the trains is so realistic that you feel like you're right on the steam train throughout the whole film. This film is the complete package and shown in the world's best film format. Makes going to the movies very worthwhile! Bravo! Can't wait to see Stephen Low's next film.

Rocky Mountain Express is masterpiece which was shot entirely on 1570 IMAX film, the ultimate visual experience. To be honest, I was not a rail fan before this film, but I am now completely converted. This story is so important to the history of Canada, and the images pull you on this stunning ride through the Rocky Mountains on a living, breathing, ornery STEAM ENGINE! Through this film I have developed so much respect for those who work on the railway, in particular those who built it with their hands and often with their lives 125 years ago. Bring your family to see this film!

I have seen many IMAX films but nothing as stunningly beautiful as this. The photography is magnificent and the story of the building of this "impossible" railway is so well told, you will never forget it. The film will also change your view of Canada and people who forged this country into the cohesive whole it is today. Rocky Mountain Express is one of the finest IMAX films ever made and certainly among the most compelling "train" films ever made. Don't miss it.

Breathtaking scenery, we had just driven part of that a week prior. Learned a lot about the railway from this film, recommend that you go see it!

First time I saw this film, I was spellbound by the scenery and the music. The second time I made sure I looked at the faces of the pioneers who built this magnificent railway route. I will go back again and simply enjoy a great experience.

I loved it! Best Imax film I have seen thus far. It made me proud to live in our beautiful province. I am also proud of our pioneers that made it possible and mindful of their many sacrifices.

I enjoyed it very much but was slightly disappointed because I thought it was about the Rocky Mountaineer trains that take you on a sightseeing journey across the Rockies. Still it was a well done movie.

This should be mandatory viewing for every Canadian. Magnificent scenery, filmed from the front of a steam engine charging through Alberta and B. C. ; a history of some of the most challenging engineering accomplished in Canada; and some of our most shameful moments (the treatment of the Chinese labourers, and their heroism.)

Could've given more pics and views of BC's wilderness. The movie did not give enough time to view the old pictures and maps of Canada back then. And whyyy did they not choose Patsy Cline Life's Railway to Heaven song vs 500 Miles - Peter Paul and Mary. Patsy Cline makes a good metaphor of how life is really like a mountain railroad with an engineer that's brave... What about today's railroad and modern trains with its future and importance today? In all, the documentary should've been more elaborated...

Not enough people know about our history and this movie does a great job at telling the tale. The only reason I do not give a 10 is because I think they could have done a little better in filming the greatness of interior BC and the Rockies. But the pride is there.

We were invited to the premier showing and it was amazing, and excellent film, showing the old and present journey of the train. Breathtaking scenery definitely a must see to appreciate the hard work in making the railroad and to enjoy canadian scenery.
