    I saw it this morning in IMAX 3D, amazing film, special effects were one of a kind and everything just looked so real, i can tell why it took so many years to make it...

    Yeh I saw it on Wednesday. I thought it was an incredible film. The CGI was out of this world (no pun intended).

    It's winged its way into my top 10

    Saw it in 2D opening night. Really good movie. I'd see it again if I had the time. 2 1/2 hours of pure awesomeness XDDDDDDDD

    For anyone who goes out and sees it, you have to see it in 3D. It's definitely my favorite movie of the year. I'm going to see it again tomorrow [​IMG].

    leiger has the same sentiment; he saw it in 3D and is adamant that everyone else should. I haven't seen it yet though.

    Well the film was actually designed to be seen in 3D in the first place.

    Saw it on Friday in 2D and loved it. I wish I could see it in 3D, but I probably won't get to. This was probably one of the coolest movies I've ever seen. My friend said it was overhyped, but I thought it deserved the hype. Great movie!

    I like it alot when everything popped out like the people and the scenery. simply amazing.
    I also want to see it in 2d to see the difference.
    Lol when I looked back in the theater everyone looked cool in there 3d glasses.

    i loved the film saw it in 3d although, wearing 3d glasses over my normal specs was very uncomfortable, and when i ttok of the 3d glasses the colours popped out more. but it was a great experience. not my top movie of the year though.

    I saw it in 3D and thought it was great, however, to be picky I wasn't really "amazed" by the 3D effects. You can see that only certain characters and objects at any time have the 3D effect, and the depth perception is still quite minimal.

    I can't see in 3D (well not things that require 3D glasses anyway), no depth perception, otherwise I would. My step-sister saw it for free for her birthday or something and said it was just long and wasn't that great. I'll just wait until it comes out on DVD, I'm too poor to see anything now.

    saw the 3D version, wonderful, imaginative and well-acted.
    story was relevant and simple, characters were likeable..

    I'm going to see it in a few hours, not sure if i'm going to see it in 3D, apparently it costs a ton more than the normal screening.

    I saw it in IMAX.

    Expensive, but worth it.

    Well I saw it on Sunday night with some friends in 3D, and we all walked away with the same feeling about it.

    The film is over hyped and overrated. The CGI is highly impressive, the 3D effects less so. There are some nice 3D moments in it don't get me wrong, but far less of the film took advantage of the 3D then what I would expect. Mostly all you get is a vague sense of depth, as opposed to true 3D. I would say that if you only get a chance to watch it in 2D you wont be missing out on a great deal.

    Spoilers below as to not ruin it for people who haven't watched it.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Aye, saw in last Thursday. It was pretty good, definately worth seeing, but not really an instant classic for me.
