Saw this movie last night at an AMCforum theater in IMAX 3D. That said, the movie did not fill the screen, but was the wide-screen version projected on an IMAX screen. There were only 17 people there for the one 3D showing at 3:30p.m. We were all handed RealD glasses, and I thought that might not be right. Well, when the 3D previews were on several of us noticed right away that there was no 3D. So I and another guy couple seats away went out to the lobby, and they gave us the correct IMAX glasses. We went back into the theater and tried to let others know they had the wrong glasses. About half of the people got different glasses, the others just sat there. The previews were so loud and the theater so dark, the others didn't get what we were trying to tell them. Well, there are probably some people who will never go see another 3D movie because they didn't see 3D or thought the 3D was stupid. And that's sad.
And, of course, it was so dang loud I had to use my ear plugs again.
That said, I thought this movie was one you had to see in 3D to enjoy it, as the director seemed to shoot with 3D in mind. Some popouts, but limited. But a lot of demanding depth, that without 3D, would only confuse the viewer with all the action going on. One problem was that about a 3rd of the movie was shot in dark places. Will be another tough movie for home-viewed 3D projectors, I think. The movie pays homage to the past earlier Star Wars movies with some of those characters showing up again. More alien species added to some scenes, made them more interesting. As a movie, I'd give it a c+ maybe, but an A- for 3D.
