My wife and I were looking forward to seeing this movie. We love Tom Hanks, and the trailer looked good and the story was compelling. But we had to leave after only 30 minutes, because the shaky camera BS made it too hard to watch the movie, and my wife got sick. Ready to throw up sick.
I just don't see the point behind this kind of film-making. This wasn't the Blair Witch Project. It wasn't "ostensibly" filmed by an amateur with a hand-held video camera. This "technique" doesn't even make the scenes more "realistic", because the human eye doesn't see action in a shaky camera way. It's just annoying. Really annoying. I wish they'd stop making movies this way.
If you get motion sick at all, don't waste your money on the big screen version. Wait for the rental version...maybe it won't be so bad.
