This movie was not on my I want to see and own it list. But when I read the review of it on Hi Def Digest and they praised the movie and the 3D I had to see what all the fuss was about. So I ordered it from Amazon and watched it one day with little expectations on my part. Well.. all I can say is that sometimes we are blown away with some undiscovered treasure we stumble across. I found out that I loved this movie. It was funny and interesting. It put my surround sound system to the test and had my buttkicker shaking and rattling me with the explosions. The thing that got me the most was the 3D. It is without a doubt the best 3D I have ever seen on any movie. Avatar and Pacific Rim used to be my Demo Movies for my 3D TV. My Oppo has really made movies, and especially 3D ones shine. My brother commented that there was not ghosting whatsoever and that the picture was so clear it was like you were watching through a window. If you have a good 3D TV with a great Surround...
The blu-ray package features both 2d and 3d, as well as a digital copy I put in VUDU and iTunes. Lots of extras. The movie fills out the 50GB disc (2D, no 3D TV) and looks incredibly filmic, with slight hints of crush on occasion in the intense darkness that often occupies scenes, though it's never distracting. Audio is top notch. Music often takes the sound stage by storm, and you wouldn't have it any other way with a soundtrack of this caliber. Every alien device sounds how you would expect, and it all roars, crashes, and zooms through the soundstage like it was really happening in the room. You might even be able to follow the whole film with your eyes closed, and very few can live up to that claim (Johnny Dangerously).
As for a review of the movie itself: I found the trailers for this to be amusing. Good music choices for the trailers, too. I knew it was a comic book movie from the start, despite not having heard of it.
