Yes it's probably one of the most visually (and sound) amazing movie I've ever seen. Can't wait to watch again but this time in IMAX.

If you are watching a 70mm IMAX film print of the movie then it might have been transferred at 4K. The vast majority of IMAX theatres are now fully digital. The current IMAX digital standard is 2K (yes, really) with two projectors slaved together to increase the brightness of the image so that it can be made larger. So no, not likely to be 4K :-(

So what we end up with is a super clean 2k image? that's too bad.

I talked with the IMAX guys for an upcoming article and the explanation for 2K actually makes sense. Current 4K projectors are unable to put out the same contrast levels as 2K projectors, and contrast is a big part of making a successful image.

This won't be an issue once the switchover to laser projection takes place, and then I guess the sky's the limit.

Not sure how much that would matter - it looks absolutely amazing and super sharp in any theater with digital projection. The face close ups are unbelievable.

at close to 4x the resolution of 2k, i would hope it would make a bit of a difference .

I cant wait till 4k at 48fps, in 3D. watching a movie on a 4k version of the oculus mmmmm..

It looks far better than your average movie, there's practically no noise or film grain, the details and colors are amazing. Then again I did not watch it on a huge IMAX screen so there the 2K may result in a pixelated look, I've seen that since they've upgraded the local theater to digital projectors.

Still, you have to see it and hear it

I saw it last night. Hugely enjoyable in all departments - especially the sound. I hope this film gets a few more viewers because our cinema was empty, even on an 'Orange Wednesday'.

There are a lot of unanswered questions though, but at least it gave me and my friends a few things to chat about on our way home. Oddly, I popped on Portal2 when I got in - wonder why?

Decided to catch this last night and wish I hadn't. What a mess. While visually interesting, even the designs made no sense. They used stupid designs (the tower house) just becasue it looked cool. Can you imagine the winds up there whipping that thing around? Doesn't anybody know how heavy water is and what sort of structure it would require to hold a swimming pool full of it steady on top of a thousand foot tower? Where do they get their supplies?

The story was riddled with so many ridiculous inconsistancies that it just became laughable. How come his magical bubble ship has seemingly infinite fuel to fly hundreds of miles, but his motorcycle quickly runs out of gas? Those sorts of technological inconsistancies are everywhere. Why are the drones so "angry?" If they're on his side, why do they not help him more? Why do their scanners suck so much (our present day tech is even better than this supposed alien technology). Why do they always have that "one spot you shoot them in to disable them?" And don't even get me started on the fact that they have hover ships and space stations, but have to relay every message through his house and manually send it out to him. I could go on and on, but it was all just so boring that I've already forgotten most of it. Overall, it was just a mashup of other better films like Moon, and even TESB (the canyon chase). In short, it made Elysium look like 2001 by comparison.
