3D REVIEW - Better Than Avatar 3D in Places !,
This review is from: The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate [3D Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Firstly this is mainly a review about the 3D Quality of this Blu Ray.
Avatar is widely regarded as the best example of Blu Ray 3D, but 'Flying Swords' is in many ways it's equal and in several scenes a better example of how great 3D technology can be used.
With live action 3D you do not always see a lot of 'pop out' 'in the room' type visual effects, (see 'Rise Of The Guardians' or 'Madagascar 3' if you really like that sort of 3D, however this film does sometimes like to show that live action can do that also with the actual 'Flying Swords',spears and arrows etc flying towards you at various points in the film.
The 3D is used in great effect by giving you the feeling of depth in all manner of scenes and locations using height, distance and the layering/positioning of actors in each scene, and also the flying scenes are excellent.
In fact in a nutshell the film just looks beautiful all the way through.
The clarity of the 3D is absolutely astounding and totally natural, I do not have a bad thing to say about it at all.
The whole film is an absolute joy to watch even the dark underground scenes were very good as they got the lighting just right to make it work.
The actual film is just as good as '13 Assassins' and also has one of the most amazing scenes in Cinematic history which is a fight between two men inside a huge Tornado up in the air (you have to see it: amazing)
You have the ability to watch in English language with no subtitles.
Of course people's opinions will vary as some people have better quality equipment than others and some may not have it set up for optimum output but what I saw showed me exactly how good 'live action film' 3D can get.
I have to see it again = #1 with Avatar 3D !

Can I add a little about the sound quality too - one of the best soundtracks i've heard, a bit different from usual Hollywood style and very dynamic. Overall a very impressively made film.
