I saw this opening day, first show, because i couldn't wait. I saw it at our iMax. I enjoy 3D and I really love dinosaurs, so I was ready for this movie.
I was surprised at how good the 3D is. I think of most 3D movies as having a background, forground, and the occasional in-your-face-ground. JP has a background, foreground, and what I call a frontground. It wasn't quite in-your-face, but there was a lot of image that stuck out and stayed there. Two characters would be talking in a two-shot and the closest character would be extending out some.
The 3D provided a lot of depth and the different objects in the picture had their own depth, they did not look like cutouts.
It has been a long time since I saw this on the big screen, so the little screen has come to define this movie for me. There are a lot of closeups in this movie, and had it been shot with iMax in mind, I think there might have fewer. A lot of big heads up their on the screen.
If you like this movie, I recommend seeing it in 3D. If you don't like it, you still won't.
I do have one question for anyone who speaks spanish. Early in the movie when the lawyer Gennaro is meeting the amber miner, as he's floating up to the dock, the boss miner says something to his buddies in spanish. From his facial expression and tone, I know he's saying something smart ass. Anyone know what he's really saying?
There were about 50 people in the theater and the biggest laugh was "woman inherits the earth."
