Audience Member The movie is supposed to be shown in 3-D. But, they mad it so you can watch it in 2-D too. Bu, I recommend the 3-D version of the movie. Besides that, it's a great little film, I love the music in it the whole time. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Saw this in 3-D and it blew me away. It's also a pretty cool story, illustrates the Devils lies Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I had seen it years ago and barely remembered it. The story is corny as hell, albeit not entirely unbelievable for the genre, the music ranged between mediocre and decent, and the acting, dialogue, as well as the character development, are so stupid that they are actually laughable! I was almost surprised that they didn't have that washed up wench Cher play the mother role... The graphics are good by todays standards but that is the best thing about this cartoon; any film where the graphics/special effects are better than everything else, including and especially the actors, is never a good sign!! I'm sure that this was spectacular in an IMAX theater but, that doesn't really help the film here. Whether this was intentional or not, there is also a "thrill ride" feel to the film, especially what with the roller coaster gimmick towards the end.This is a film that is good for its visuals, best to be seen, and appreciated, in a theater setting. At home it is stupid and barely worth it... Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A very interesting IMAX film with a good story and a great soundtrack. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Brilliant 3D effects, best seen at IMAX. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic visuals that REALLY immerse you into another world ruined by a pathetic storyline. I saw this at the Imax for AS media. PLEEASE see Beowulf instead! Rated 2/5 Stars • Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
