I liked the changes in the story - it felt more like a retelling of the same theme than a remake of the movie (which would still have had mutants and Mars in it).
Interestingly, though the general plot was the same, there doesn't seem to have been as much exposition in this movie. There were some subtle character points made that could easily have been lost if you tuned out for 30 seconds, but were major points in the original.
Points off for some terrible science though. I can ignore "future tech" items, but why would you put windows in the drop right by the core? Just because it's pretty? Also, why does the gravity suddenly disappear, then just as suddenly come back in the opposite direction? Dumb.
Oh, and at times, I really had trouble telling the two female leads apart. When they were fighting I had absolutely no idea which was which.
But ignoring that, I did enjoy the movie.
I saw this film because it came on while my 4yo daughter was watching Disney Jr.
Now, I have no idea why it was on that channel. Quite frankly, it seemed to be aimed at an older age than the usual programming they have, and I don't think it was at all suitable for a 4yo.
Not a bad movie though.
The first 3D film I saw on my brand new 3D TV.
I liked the movie. The cross-overs between the old 8-bit games and modern 3D games was handled really well, and it was nice to see nods to some of the games I remember from my childhood (Q*bert!).
It's obvious this movie was never intended to be a 3D feature. The 3D component looks really good, and is handled well, with absolutely no instances of "3D for the sake of 3D", which even Avatar was guilty of in at least one instance.
