What was I thinking. If it wasn't filmed with an IMAX camera then it won't be the full size IMAX. If it wasn't filmed in 3D then it won't be the 'out in the audience' 3D. There were scenes with the jets that did not turn out all that well and they were not clear and looked as if they were hanging from a string to be filmed. The 3D did add some depth but that was all. Top Gun is still a great movie but the added cost for the movie was all hype. They should have just brought it back even with the 3D but not call it IMAX. I will admit that I did not watch this at a true IMAX but at a conventional theater converted to a mini IMAX. The picture did not fill even this small screen (the aspect ratio was not correct). There was a space at the top and bottom of the screen just like showing a true theater aspect ration on your widescreen TV.

This is simply the greatest fictional aviation film of all time. For anyone with any interest in aviation at all, this is a must see. How can anyone pass on the chance to see such a classic on the big screen and in IMAX 3D at that. Though obviously not filmed in 3D it was still pretty impressive. I agree with other reviewers, seeing on big screen allows you see details I've never noticed before.

I've loved this movie since it came out and jumped at the chance to see it in 3D. Loved the flight scenes in 3D. The downside is the glasses you have to wear to watch.

This movie really benefits from big screen and big sound of Imax, but this movie was not designed for 3D. And so the 2D-3D conversion for this movie is just a waste.
