I won’t give any spoilers here, that’s bad taste. But I will give my opinion. That’s allowed.
To begin with, I went on a freebie. I won the tickets (my third set this year YAY!! – gotta love contesting!!) and Kirk and I went tonight to the theatre in Chinook Mall, here in Calgary.
It was 3-D, and we arrived fairly late, so ended up sitting in the very front. This was sucky, but it actually allows me to give a better opinion. I didn’t like the seats in the front when we went to Gladiator years ago, and had made promises to ourselves to never sit that close again. But these were free, so we decided to stick around and watch it.
I’m glad we did. Although I could see pretty much every pore on Chris Evan’s face, it is such a good looking face I didn’t mind at all. It was a little distracting with the 3-D so close, but not so much that the movie was destroyed by it. My husband disagrees with me, but he had Scarlett Johansson to look at. My neck was strained by the end, and sitting so close made me move my head to see what was going on when stuff moved from side to side on the screen. And there is a lot of stuff going on all over the screen, so I have to say my neck is actually quite sore.
The story line was a little weak, and it seemed a little choppy sometimes. But I’ll admit I haven’t seen all the other movies yet, so that could be why I wasn’t as impressed as others might be. It was a good movie, with good actors that played their parts well, so I’ll give it a 7.5 out of 10 for now – I may revise this opinion at a later date.
