This movie is best viewed from the centre seats where you can see everything, the camera work and use of 3D was excellent and really does need to be appreciated
Okay maybe not front row but from where you were sitting you could see the sides of the screen right? And maybe the floor and ceiling? If you see the movie on a regular screen but it completely fills your field of view then the effect is the same?

Second row?
That's like saying watching a 3D tv from 6 inches away is like watching a film on an imax screen,don't think so.

but if you were a very VERY small person then a big tv might be like an imax to you.

No it isn't because that's not a practical example, I'm genuinely wondering if you sit outside the scope of an IMAX screen i.e. you can see the frame, whether that's actually any more immersive than sitting further forward or even closer at a regular screen. They're all options available that people are using to see this movie.

Saw this today in IMAX 3D, which i believe is the only way to experience this film properly. As far as the film goes as a whole, it is definitely a huge technological achievement! The special effects in this film are just out of this world and unlike anything i have ever seen before. I think that this film fully deserves the acclaim that it is getting as for me it was just incredible and maybe the film of the year. The soundtrack is also top notch in this film and really does help to make it the 3D experience that it was made to be.

For me i think that you will either love or hate this film, there is no in between. The script was good with some funny moments but really you go and watch this film for the experience, and for that it fully delivers!

Both actors gave standout performances but for me if you are going to watch this film try your hardest to see it in IMAX 3D, the film demands it and is worth every penny!

9/10

P.S regarding the 3D, whilst it did add some depth I don't necessarily think this needs to be seen in 3D to be fully appreciated (I'll eventually find out whether or not that's actually the case because I'll definitely be going to see the 2D version in a few weeks time ;) )...
Went to see this in 2D earlier today & have to say that I much preferred watching it in this format, the additional sharpness rewarded me with a greater appreciation of just how good the visual effects in this movie actually are (prior to the screening I was concerned that visually this movie would lose some of the photo realism that it appeared to have in 3D but thankfully that wasn't the case).

As for the film itself, despite having very little going on story wise, I still enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time around and I think that more than anything else this was due to the strong performances produced by both Clooney & Bullock.

Overall it's really not that far away from being a perfect viewing experience but as I still have a couple of very minor quibbles with it I think 9/10 remains a fair/realistic score o/ ...

Did anybody else get motion sickness from it? Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the film, but I had to lie down for a few hours after while the room spun around me as if I were drunk.
