Does the 3D disk have the audio commentary?
Or is it just on the 2D disk?
The way the closing credits read, I took it to mean it was not actually shot in 3D. There were credits for something like "3D Application" and the like. Also, IMDB said they used a Panavision Panaflex Millennium XL2 camera, which Wiki says was produced first in 2004. I don't *think* this is a 3D camera.
I felt the display was quite flat and was not surprised to see this in the credits. And unfortunately, I agree with post #37 that they did not take advantage of the 7.1 sound at all, with lots of battles and air vehicles flying all over the place.
BUT, I loved the movie anyway. I had low expectations based on advertising which never mentioned ERB so I assumed the estate did not sanction the movie. I'm not sure if the TV ads ever mentioned Mars. But I got caught up in the action. Although I don't remember the book, I felt the movie was quite true to the ERB idea of mars.
I rented the 3D version (3d-blurayrental.com), and they said they use the retail version, but there was no commentary.
