Had the chance to watch about 30 minutes of the 3d bluray, and the 3d was amazing. Sharp, colorful, excellent contrast. Absolutely stunning, this bluray is what 3d should look like.

Too bad the movie was somewhat of a dog.

Yes the movie was pretty bad, lol. But it looks a lot better than most of the recent 3d releases.

A family film with good 3D may be a keeper regardless of the quality of the film.

Flying on a giant bumblebee was great fun in 3D. I enjoyed the movie.

I'm crossing my fingers for a nice bundled price for both the "Journey" 3D Blurays...

Me too, I enjoyed the first film and wanted to see second film but it came out same week as the Ep 1 conversion so I watched that.

Watched this last night with the family. My son (10) went to see it in the theaters in 2D and had been teasing his 8 year old sister ever since about what a great film she had missed.
Seeing it in 3D was a treat and the kids loved it! I enjoyed watching my wife duck, bob and weave at the action coming at her from the screen!
For a non animated family film, it was a great experience!

Good 3D on this one but the movie itself was pretty cheesy

watched this with my family last night, Kids really liked it a lot. It was a fun family film and the 3D was fantastic. the movie itself was a little cheezy and predictable but fun non the less.

I picked up the BluRay 3D yesterday and watched it with my brother. Yes, the movie is dumb, goofy, improbable and often preposterous. And yes, some of the performances may make you cringe. But in terms of 3D it really doesn't get much better than this release. Depth into the screen is constant and always very strong. You're treated to some beautiful flyovers of imaginative environments like the Lost City of Atlantis (complete with Poseidon's spear passing right past you). The movie peppers you with scene after scene of stuff popping out at you: berries bouncing off the Rock's pecs, giant bees, giant centipedes, electric eels, and an electrified spear that goes right thru your eye. You'd probably have to go to a thrill ride at Disneyworld to see so many gimmick shots in such a short span of time and if that's what you're looking for in a 3D movie Journey 2: Mysterious Island won't disappoint.

The movie's cinematography also smartly manages extreme contrast ranges so you get a picture that is pretty much free of ghosting on any type of 3D display, no matter how old it is. The digital image is razor sharp, ultra colorful and perfectly clear (film grain fans need not bother with this one).

While "serious" 3D movies like Avatar and Hugo are fine, every now and then you want to check your brain at the door and just spend 90 minutes ducking and weaving as stuff is virtually hurled at you; Journey 2 has that need covered and for that reason alone should probably be checked out at least once by every 3D fan.

Watched this with the kids, and I have to agree that the film itself is pretty flimsy--but as a 3D experience, it is a ton of fun and as gimmicky as can be. I don't want every movie to be this self consciously 3D, but it sure is fun to have one or two of these in the collection just to show off what your set is capable of when you leave your discretion at the door and start throwing fruit at The Rock.

I agree with the above comments. Dumb, fun, and good visuals.
The best part was in the closing credits: "Mr. Johnson's Hairstylist."

I agree with everyone else that the movie was lame. The first one was a lot better. As far as the 3D, I thought it was OK. Nothing special, just OK. There is still nothing that compares to Sammy's Adventures for the Best Blu-Ray 3D movie out there. I hope that changes.

That is an animated movie! In my opinion we cannot really compare animation to a live action shoot. One is 100% artificial. the other is not.
The 3D in Journey 2 is actually very good too. I am not really sure what you expect from live action but I suspect you may favour lots of pop-out which animated feature tend to utilise that bit more, hence your opinion?

I thought the 3D in this movie was very, very good.

I watched this a couple of nights ago and this is some of he best 3D on the market. Movie was painfully cheesy but the 3D is worth the pain of having to sit through the film...especially if you have kids.

I agree entirely...the 3D effects were the only thing that made this movie watchable. smile.gif

Enjoyed the movie and story immensely. 3D was about the best of breed and the story, well, I sit it along side of Avatar with some humor that Avatar was lacking. In fact, I would give it a half star above Avatar but that is just me. A good measure will be how often I watch it. I've already watched it 3 times. Avatar count is now at 7 times.

Finally a 3D movie that has enough brightness for my projector.

Anybody notice a vertical offset in the L-R images in the scene in the "air lock" as Sean & Hank enter the sub?
I didn't see the film in a theater so I was wondering if it was a transfer issue or was in the original film.

Did you read my rating above your post? I mentioned it..along with other anomalies.
