Overview

Dolphins appears in a bright, colorful transfer that is virtually free of defects or grain. The picture will obviously fall short of viewing the film on a giant IMAX screen, but it still provides an engaging home-viewing experience. The non-anamorphic, full-frame format works surprisingly well and should not disappoint the dolphin lovers who purchase this release. This release also succeeds in the audio department and offers a choice between two excellent transfers. The DTS version is a bit sharper and more complex, which helps to draw the viewer into the pristine environments; however, the 5.1 channel Dolby Digital transfer is also a very effective choice. One of the highlights of this type of McGillivray Freeman film is the inclusion of a lengthy behind-the-scenes documentary. Running for about 37 minutes, this feature provides an intimate, compelling look at the entire production. It includes interviews with all of the key cast and crew members, who exude a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for the project. Also worthwhile is the 11-minute "Marine Science: Exploring the Deep" featurette that provides a nice guideline for youngsters planning to enter this field. The remaining supplements include five previews, book advertisements, web links, and a biography of director Greg McGillivray. The trailers for Dolphins, The Magic of Flight, Stormchasers, The Living Sea, and The Discoverers are included.
