“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

The new Movie is really good and the 3D is quite impressive.

A must along with children...One can surely start appreciating the universe and the level of science is going into the next level..

A good refresher.....Some how one can enjoy the feel of looking directly into the Sky, Stares which is so missing in the cities....
