Finally watched this over the weekend. Visuals were excellent except, as noted earlier, that lens flare was used with a bit more abandon than I like to see. Audio was excellent, full stop, with wonderful LFE that had me removing lamp shades and tying down small children to keep them from blowing away.
The story was OK, not the best I've seen but certainly not the worst. When it comes to films like this I try rather hard to ignore the plot holes that are screaming for my attention. Sometimes it takes effort to suspend disbelief.
