Truly a milestone in creating digital environments that are both believable and beautiful. And excellent use of 3D too. The jungle sequences in particular help convince and draw the viewer into this incredibly detailed and alien world.
Only hope cinemas follow up by similarly advanced techniques for detecting and expelling young teens with laser pointers having their kind of “fun” at the expense of everyone else. In that respect movie-theatres are currently at a disadvantage compared to home viewing blissfully free of such annoyances.
Anyway I hope the release dates for DVD/Bluray will not be too far into the future. For sure this is one of THE films to buy this year - just to study the sheer wealth of details one invariably miss on a single viewing is something I look forward to. But beyond all that this film is foremost a milestone in making the unbelievable belieavable. My hat off to all who contributed - a production to be proud of indeed.
