1.0 out of 5 stars Totally worhless July 25, 2011
I bought this at the store in a fit of enthusiasm about my new 3D TV, what a mistake. I have fond memories of the swimsuit issue from my youth, so i thought I would give this a try and see if it is even better in 3D. There was almost no content on the disk. I think they looked at three models only. The 3D does not add anything to this either. PG only and very boring.

2.0 out of 5 stars It does not worth the price July 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a 3D Blu-ray showing models in bikinis, this is not the one. The 3D seems to be a conversion and not native 3D. If you are interested on this product, just get the regular (non-3D) version. I got it to see how the sport illustrated models look in 3D but they look exactly as they will look in the non-3d version of the product. To ensure I leave an objective feedback about this 3D product; here are two examples of very good 3D Blu-rays: 1. Resident Evil: Afterlife [Blu-ray 3D] and 2. Step Up 3D. Please note I'm not saying the two movies previously mentioned are good movies; I'm just saying the 3D on these two movies is AWESOME.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Scenic Beach View on Blu-Ray 3D October 8, 2011
As many others, my family and I have recently been catching up into the 3D movie craze, so when our TV busted a couple of weeks ago (it was a horrible, horrible snowboarding accident), we decided to shell out the extra money for a 3D TV.

Sadly, it seems that most of the 3D Blu-Rays are expensive. At the time being, we only had one (Avatar 3D, which came with our 3D Glasses), so when I found this on sale for $15, I knew I had something good, and I have to say that it far exceeded my expectations.

I watched this late at night while my wife was asleep (I don't even think she knows I have it) and I never wanted it to end.

They managed to pack such beautiful shots of the Hawaiian beach line in here!

This is by far the best nature documentary I've seen, and the 3D helps. Everything works here, from the multiple colors of the trees, to the majestic view of the sand. I found it much more entertaining than Avatar, which I do have to admit, especially in scenes with the Na'vi Neytiri, the view was good, but this one takes the cake. I felt like I was actually in Hawaii!

One downside is that some of the shots are ruined by what I believe are models of some kind. Sometimes they can be distracting and the camera focuses on them too long. I want to look at the tree and the water swaying, not the girl laying on her backside stretching on the beach! Sometimes they even break away from the scenery to have the models talk to the camera. It's alright at times, because some of them are interesting to hear them talk about their evaluation of the land itself, but other times you're just yelling "GET BACK TO THE WATER!"

But that's not enough to ruin it. You have to see it. 5/5, recommended for everyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better Than You Think July 21, 2013
Like another reviewer stated, I too stayed away from this blu-ray because of the bad reviews, but recently bought one very cheap to check out. I was surprised I liked it as much as I did. This new format is the best because there is about 10 minutes of each girl on the beach or in nature. It's not as chopped up like all the previous S.I. swimsuit videos. It flows better, more serene. Only watched in 2D and the scenery and picture quality is gorgeous. Overall I gave this blu-ray 3 stars because 3 girls and only 30 min. running time is pathetic. People expect more for their money.

It appears S.I. has stopped making these swimsuit blu-rays/dvds. Too bad; if they had made this blu-ray using more girls and longer running time, it might have been more desirable for people to buy. I believe there is still an audience that appreciates an attractive girl surrounded by the beauty of nature that these videos could still appeal to, IF DONE RIGHT. As it stands, it is still an easy purchase for anyone who likes the 3 girls used. I just wouldn't pay alot for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless January 10, 2013
By Joecool

I held off buying bc of the bad reviews, that was a mistake. This is how all SI Swimsuit issues should be filmed. You can watch it in either 3d or 2d- I prefer 2d. The picture is crisp, the Maui background is beautiful, and the camera shots do not change every second like previous years. You got get amazing shots of the models, even from behind, and it's not bogged down by interviews. Wish it was longer but I'll take quality over quantity every year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Met my expectations June 21, 2011

You know going in what your getting and for the price its worth it. I mean, its the only SI swimsuit blu-ray out so far and the PQ is amazing. Yea, its only 30 minutes but how much do you need, or want. I wanted more but my hopes are that the sales will push them to make another one with more models.

Two thumbs up!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Sports Illustated Swimsuit Experience February 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
It's very important for me to write this review right now, because I am sure as I write this Sports Illustrated is in pre-production for the 2012 Swimsuit Edition Video.

PLEASE READ: Sports Illustrated, whatever you do, DO NOT stray from the format of this extraordinary video. The 2011 Swimsuit 3D Experience video is the perfect format! Regardless of what other viewers say, you did everything right with this video.

This masterpiece is perfect for guys who like to look at the most beautiful women in the world without any distractions. Mr. Whittaker's direction was considerate and focused; he made sure to make the production about the women, and not about fancy camera work. God bless you, man!

Past swimsuit videos had horrible direction. The cinematographer would never stay on a model long enough for the viewer to truly appreciate her beauty. Instead the camera work was riddled with unnecessary pans and distracting movements, in a cheap effort to make the video more entertaining...but only more entertaining to people who don't like to gaze at beautiful women.

For those who claim that the video is boring, I suggest that you just don't like looking at beautiful women. This is how to watch this video: play your favorite music, turn the volume on the video down, have a beer, and put the video on repeat.

I can watch Irina Shayk and Julie Henderson posing on that beach infinite times and not get bored! Wow...just WOW!!! Alyssa Miller is hot too, but she's more like "wifey" material (the type of perfect supermodel that you fantasize about marrying and having children with, which is a big complement.)

I need more Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 3D videos. Please take my advice into consideration and don't mess up the 2012 edition because of insecurity. Trust your manly instincts.

It's all about the women!
