I felt it outdid the REDFORD version, and the excitement ran the show throughout. I was somewhat disappointed in the JORDON BAKER character, particularly how the director missed her golf cheating moment that impacted Nick i the book and all the other versions.
The cars were great evein though I believe they were at least ten years after the 1922 period reprisented. GATSBY was every bit as good or better than REDFORD. I saw it in 3D IMAX which added to the special effects. The party scenes were totally memorable.

The age old classic, "The Great Gatsby" is back on screen this time in a bigger, badder, and crispier cinematic fashion. Leonardo Dicaprio stars as the debonair billionaire James Gatsby. Alongside an all star ensemble including Tobe Maguire, the Great Gatsby proves to be an entertaining movie experience that fans young and old will enoy.

Great movie, stunning scenery and cinematography. Leo DeCaprio is great as usual. I don't thing the 3-D did much to enhance the story though. Most of the time the characters looked superimposed onto the background. It was distracting.

Loved this movie. I have not read the book but it made me want to read it. I saw this in 3D but it was not 3D like you would think(nothing is flying at your face), it really made the movie that much better and the colors amazing. If you have the option I would recommend seeing it in 3D! Great movie and a must see in the theaters. If you are going to opt to see it in regular view and not 3D I would just wait until it came out on dvd.

Not the worst movie I've ever seen, but close. Too much emphasis on the glitz and not enough on the story. 3D version also seemed to push the 3D effect too much.
