Great Gatsby in 3D Movie Reviews
User reviews on Great Gatsby in 3D
I liked this movie better than a lot of critics apparently did - it's trending pretty mediocre on Rottentomatoes - but the whole 3D thing I think is pretty egregious. Do we really need to see non-animated and non-CGI figures partying in 3D? I don't really get the point...unless the point is to milk moviegoers of an extra 10 bucks to watch Carey Mulligan party it u Moulin Rouge-style in 3D. Yes, the visuals are pretty amazing in the first hour, but then the 3D totally loses its usefulness and you're left wondering what is going on with the story in the second half. I thought the 3D glasses were really annoying to have to wear in the second half when everything gets more normalized. I'd say see it in 2D and let the spectacle carry you away. If it worked for Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge, it can work for Carey Mulligan in the Great Gatsby.
I liked this film and I think it is worth seeing in the theaters, I think it is a great summer blockbuster that does not include explosions or superheroes. The film was amazing visually and very captivating, I was extremely impressed with Dicaprio’s rendition of Gatsby, he did such a great job with this role. The director went all out with amazing visuals and seeing the film in 3D was pretty spectacular. I liked that the director did not go into too much depth (I know how that sounds) because I read the book and I know it’s deep but I wanted to see the glamorous life of 1930’s and that is exactly what I got. I bet some people will be disappointed with the film and I know that the critics will hate it, however I had a great time watching it.
So I was waiting for this film to come out it seems like forever and when it finally did, I decided to go all out and see it in 3D. I loved this movie, it was exactly what I expected it to be and I had a wonderful time watching it. The movie was incredible visually and I got totally lost in the world of champagne, parties and amazing costumes, the director definitely went all out and I loved it. Leonardo DiCaprio was an amazing Gatsby, he played the character perfectly and I was yet again very impressed with him. Overall, the film is captivating and magical and I think it is a perfect summer blockbuster.
