The Three D's explained
D #1: The plot, the characters, the dialogue, the script. They were all one-dimensional.
D #2: The cinematography and visual effects. They were very good.
D #3: The cinematography and digital effects. They're worth at least two dimensions.
Overall, it was a fun movie to watch. I'd recommend it to all IMAX enthusiasts, since IMAX fans aren't concerned with what they're watching as long as it looks cool.
