Yup, certainly one of the best 3D movies to come along since Hugo and Avatar. Make sure you watch the extras. Quite amazing how they did some of the scenes. Is it the best movie of the year--hardly, but it's an engaging story. Somewhat tedious to watch at times, but the 3D makes up for that. And as you say above, there are a few pop outs that are startling, especially when they switch from 16:9 to 2.35:1 for several minutes and overlap the two perspectives. As you say it was a quick cut and worth rewatching several times.
