Shawna's Summer Movie Review #3
Okay....I was all ready to expect some silliness here and yes I got it (more on that in a moment). What I was not prepared for was the amazing 3D effects. Some (Brendan Fraser spitting his toothpaste out) has you thinking "ewwwwwwwww" while others (dandelion fluffs that float right past you) had to wanting to reach out and touch them. This is DEFINATELY a theater experience as I think you would lose a lot of the effects on the small screen.
Back to the silliness: okay, parts of this movie will have you laughing along, others will have you jump in your seat, and a few will probably have you groaning aloud over how improbable the storyline really is. The thing is you really don't pay attention to some storyline flaws because you are having so much fun along the way. There is, however, one definate Indiana Jones homage (actually done better than the original) but I will allow you to find that one on your own.
Oh, be sure to get there early as the previews are in 3D as well which was a lot of fun!
All in all? I will definately see it in the theater again (my friend Tara wasn't able to go with me last night) and I will probably get the DVD since it really was a fun little trip into a fantasy world.
