Malcolm, I was almost a victim of seeing this movie in 3-D as well; in fact, I was looking forward to seeing it in 3-D. Luckily I happened to read an early review which stated that the 3-D was non-existant & useless. I totally understand your dissappointment. However, there have been some very good 3-D films. Don't give up completely yet. Before seeing a 3-D movie, first check to see if it was actually shot in 3-D & read reviews for it. Its a shame this has to be done, but you don't want to end up dissappointed again.
