Proyas' previous film was also shot entirely on digital... I, Robot
. I don't recall black level issues with that movie...
Saw this one at the theater and it definitely did seem washed out. I figured it was just a bad print since I saw it late in the run.
This was a good movie up until they had to actually explain what was happening. Then, like so many other films, books and television shows... it all fell apart. Still, up until then, it was pretty damned cool. Some really great disasters in this movie. I won't be picking this one up new but somewhere down the road when it's on sale for $15 or so, I'll probably pick it up.
