Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While the film promises a tour through the history of stereoscopic effects, the survey is pretty cursory, with a lot of old Stereopticon cards and clips from 3-D movies from the form's early 1950s heyday like Bwana Devil (1952)."

"Contains some vertiginous visions that can truly be labeled 'state-of-the-art.'"
‑ Kevin Lally, Film Journal International
