is this 3 d movie in passive 3 d or active 3 d or those stupid cardboard throw away glasses, amazon should make this clear on their pages as people just do not want to buy 3 d titles with those awful carboard glasses, would like to hear if people agree with me .

It's in real 3D, you'll need a 3D TV, 3D bluray player or PS3 with latest firmware update, oh and some shutter glasses.

i understand what you have said but what i am saying is that i purchased a 3 d blue ray polar express and it came with cardboard glasses which just arnt up to the job and were far too big for my grandkids,all blue ray 3d movies should state if passive or active glasses are to be used and clearly state if they come with the rubbishy cardboard type as i would not have purchased that blue ray if id have known this, thank youfor your reply, have other people any comments ?.

If it says "Bluray 3D" then you will need the setup i just mentioned, this is not red/green 3D, it's the same as the cinema. All 3D blurays can only be used on the required equipment, they don't state active passive glasses on the boxes cause it's irrelevant.

The glasses required will depend on the TV or projector you have bought. Some use simple polarising glasses - my brother can use cheap glasses from his local multiplex and I think his TV looks excellent - and some use expensive active shutter systems. One excellent projector uses radio glasses rather than infra red. These systems will need specific to the system, and expensive, glasses.

"oh and some shutter glasses. "

Or some passive (polarised 3D glasses like they use at the cinema) if, like the vast majority of 3D system owners, you have a passive setup.

Hi i thinking of buying this for the 3D but no one has mentioned if the 3D affects are any good. Are there protruding affects or is it all just depth as most films are? Would love to see a really good 3D film with lots of things coming out of the screen, anyone know of a really good film like this? Thanks

I saw it at the BFI IMAX. I don't remember a lot of protruding effects. They go for depth these days rather than what the Disney creatives call "needle in the eye" stuff. There is a storm in the film involving a lot of flying rock that looked good in 3D. I would say that the best film for protruding effects is Despicable Me.

The only protruding effects in Prometheus were when David activated the planetariam program in the cave. And even then, the projection was subtle. Nothing to compare with Tintin 3D or the astonishing death scene with the metal poles in Final Destination 5 - I involuntarily jerked my head back at that one!

Further to my previous reply, I would say that Drive Angry is just about the best 3D demo disc out there. It is also very cheap.

Agree, Drive Angry is good, the best still has to be AVATAR the 3D is Tremendous ! PROMETHEUS 3D is impressive.

For me Avatar is the best. My second IMAX viewing showed that a great deal of thought had gone into it but, while every shot has been done with 3D in mind, the genius of it is that the 3D enhances the film without making its presence felt in a distracting way (Avatar still remains the daddy of special effects movies too) and Prometheus is also very much in that vein. The original post, however, was about 3D that comes out of the screen and Drive Angry (axe, bullet, coin etc) is excellent for that. My absolute best, though, remains the end credits sequence of Despicable Me.

Not so, there are several protruding effects in prometheus and I enjoyed the 3d experience immensely.
