3D Blu-ray

Those mountain scenes hiking up the ridge lines were pretty realistic.

Dragon 3D

He is Dragon 3D Bluray (Russian, German, sub: German)
AKA: On Drakon, I Am Dragon, other....
English review 1
English review 2

I watched this German/Russian bluray 2d-3d single disc, after watching the movie on tv and a 2d bluray version in my language. Good depth and pop outs, some flat scenes. Being 3D available only in German/Russian+German subtitles, I'd suggest this after a 2d vision in your own language. Then, once you know the story, if you like it and want more of this movie, this (rare to find) 3d bluray is a good add on to watch in original Russian language, or loading external subtitles.
This is a love story, so I don't want to add more to respect other personal feelings, but I must warn there is very dramatic short intro not suitable for kids(human sacrifice to the dragon, skip forward to the end of it...) followed by dark dragon's lair action (you expect a bit of chase and flames in a dragon movie!) and after 40' it turns old-Disney-proof.
I highly appreciated the story and insights of realization, rebellion and redemption, the beautiful nordic costumes, scenery and music.
In my opinion, if romance is among your movie interests, I'd watch this one ignoring all trailers or reviews to avoid spoilers and opinions although they are mostly positive.
On the other hand, if you are just looking for action dragon adventure, I'd ignore the commercial GOT-like claims and watch something else.

I finally got around to renting this movie when the rental fee dropped. I did not want to spend the money to buy it. It turned out to be better than expected.

The story is not bad, but predictable, with some decent performances. It has the usual material, sabotage, conspiracy, sibling rivalry, working class hero versus dumb bureaucrats. It is scientifically beyond belief. The visuals are impressive, as you said.

I also watched it on a home theater screen in 3D (Da-Lite 77324 60x80, Optoma HD25e, Sony player, Denon surround system). It looks and sounds good.
