This could've been a fantastic showcase film for 3-D, but instead it's an example of how NOT to do it.
I think some folks are just desperate for content and are giving this film a pass as a result, but anyone who's seen quality 3-D will know right away that this is a swing and a miss. Bummer.
I haven't watched the entire movie yet so I can't comment on the plot. However, from what I have watched so far the 3D effects are fine. There is good 3D depth into the screen. I haven't seen many 3D effects coming out of the screen towards the viewer yet. However, this effect is less realistic to me and more on the gimmicky side anyway.
Perhaps this is what some folks are disappointed by, I don't know. When I view the movie using software on my PC I need to use mode 1 to get the 3D. Otherwise the 3D is poor. When I view the movie using my Panny 350, it requires mode 2. Perhaps some folks are viewing the movie using the wrong mode which would yield poor results.
