IMAX 3-D or nothing
Despite Sandra Bullock's flat performance this is a fantastic story. I have to say I was truly skeptical about the ability of this movie to hold my attention for 90 minutes, however with a few twists and turns, it delivered. I don't think I would have been anywhere near as impressed had I seen this movie in any other format other than IMAX 3-D. Spend the extra bucks, it's the difference between an impressive movie and a not so impressive movie.
The Director takes every opportunity to get Sandra out of her space suit, which is impressive, but silly given the situation. Her portrail of the character lacks depth and emotion in some places.
If you wait to see this one at home, or go see it in any other format than IMAX 3-D I suspect you will be disappointed.
