I must admit, I feel cheated. I love Lee's movies, and was eager to see what he had dreamed up for us. All the talk is about the tech of it. At 120 fps I expected to leave the theater a smoking wreck. BUT - OK, here I go - I really didn't notice any difference between a well shot 24 fps movie and this one. In fact, I had assumed that the the flicker that is perceptible when a shot is panned would all but disappear. Unbelievably, it seemed more pronounced!
Now, I may have been duped. Let me ask: don't the theaters have to have special projectors to be able to reproduce 120fps? Could I have been watching an HD DVD-type version? Was it necessary to see it in 3D to "get it"? I did not - saw it in 2D. I wanted a comparison from a level playing field. I left confused, It just didn't make sense.
Beyond that, what is not being talked about much is the story. I think it's an astounding, and courageous statement on our modern culture. It goes forcefully to places in our zeitgeist that are not pretty; not popular; not politically correct. A deep bow to Mr Lee for that all-important part of film making.
