I felt it was a pretty fun ride, and a good use of 3D.

$15 in the DC suburbs which is not too bad given that 3D movies are
$30 in some places. I don't mind paying as I don't watch movies in
the theater often, and I don't buy movies.

Now I understand 3D is all the rage now, but that first of all it
doesn't play well with live action films, and also producers are
getting away with charging double price for a few splashes of water in
3D plastered over a entire 2D movie? Thor was a 3D trailer, and I
didn't pick up any 3D from it. It was night and day compared to the
Tron film.

Well this was the first 3D movie I've watched in the theater (the
glasses don't look stupid anymore, I did not know they look like
normal glasses now). It played well in terms of usage of depth....I
have a feeling movies with a lot of animation and computer graphics
are the movies that will play well in 3D.

Anyway, it's a fun movie. I donut understand it when people criticize
movies like this because of the script or a story where "nothing
happens". The intention here is hardly an oscar-lead performance, is
it? For me, it's about eye candy, pretty picture, and fun. A movie of
this type is bad if it is passe or just not fun (like Superman:
Forever, and also have a feeling Green Lantern will fall in that

Another note is it has an outstanding score, really fits well with the

Last word is I wonder what the implications are with that digital
stunt they did in which the main actor acted himself as an old guy,
and as a young dude. Think of the police getting a hacker to plaster
a face on a video recording of a crime. Or for hollywood types who
rely on nothing but their looks--will they pay to have a "public"
young face? Interesting and/or creepy.
