Watched the 2d version (on the 3d disc) earlier this week and watched the 3d version last night. I enjoyed the movie and thought it was a worthy sequel to the franchise, but it did feel a bit rushed/short. The good thing about the length though is there is never a dull moment so it is a fun ride.
3d was very subtle, but effective IMO. There was decent depth and even a handful of pop out moments which were fun. The 3d was better than I expected reading various comments here and is the best way to see this film IMO.
Audio was absolutely fantastic! Yes, this is a bass fest, BUT there is never bass just for the sake of bass like some people have alluded to. Anytime there is LFE, it is either in support of on screen action or to trigger emotion of impending doom or some sort of event. The LFE was like a character in itself and it really pulled me into the film. I loved how the Super Lycan was given the most weight as far as the low end which really convinced the audience of his dominance in relation to the regular Lycans. Anytime this big boy came on screen was just downright pure demo quality HT bliss IMO.
Some have also mentioned bass drowning out the other elements of the mix which I did not have ANY problem with. Even with as thundering and pounding as the low end got at times, it never drowned out the dialog and NEVER drowned out the awesome surround elements. There are some truly excellent panning effects and discrete type elements scattered throughout as far as the surround track in particular. Combined with the titanic low end, this one pulls you right in the middle and IMO probably the best audio track yet this year. 5 star reference audio in my book.
Just my thoughts. Great blind buy and my new audio demo movie for when people show up.
