First of all, I reserve the right to change my mind after a second viewing (which may not happen for a good while). I say this because I had 5 grandchildren and my son-in-law viewing this with me and I decided to play the "gracious host" and give them the best viewing positions. I was at considerable distance from my "sweet spot" (off-axis) and I'm not sure I had my normal "discerning eyes."
Having said that, what I did experience pretty much coincided with GRG's except I also noticed some fleeting *softness* on a couple of occasions (though this appeared to be the director's intent due to the lighting employed).
I was REALLY impressed with the PHOTOREALISM! If they had not chosen to give many of the characters a "caricature-look," it would have been SO REAL it could have passed for a non-animated film in some scenes.
Details abounded...colors jumped off the screen...and contrast exploded with a dazzling display. I simply LOVED the black levels, with nighttime scenes that rendered shadow details flawlessly.
I'm NOT completely sure this deserves SECOND PLACE (above Avatar
), but it's mighty close. So, until I do give this a second viewing, I'll echo GRG's recommendation and place it here...Tier Recommendation: Tier 0 (below Toy Story 3)*
