3D Review of Underworld Awakening... Filmed with 3D Cameras,
This review is from: Underworld: Awakening [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
To the point: This action/horror hybrid was filmed using Red Epic 3D cameras on the set for most of the film, and the result? Good 3D in Underworld Awakening. When the movie starts, it's in 2D highlighting the previous films, but then it switches to 3D and wow. For 3D, I consider it great when the foreground, mid ground and background pop very clearly from one another in depth so there's no mistake it's 3D. This is clearly the case with Underworld Awakening during many scenes, but sometimes, the 3D pales and looks a bit flat during non action moments. The 3D is comparable to Resident Evil Afterlife 3D, which used the Fusion Cameras as Avatar 1 did.
Underworld Awakening 3D: Top notch 3D that has excellent depth and pop, as well as some 'pop out' moments with Selene's famous throwing stars and the Lycans attacking the screen. Very slick and stylish action throughout and Kate Beckinsale is fun to watch. The main storyline takes place 12 years after the 2nd film, Underworld Evolution.
Movie: 8/10 Story was basic, but reveals unanswered questions.
Action: 9/10 Plenty of stunts, blazing guns, martial arts and monsters. Nicely done.
3D: 8/10 This was filmed in 3D using 3D cameras and looks GREAT at times.
Recommended: YES, if you like this genre of movies. Don't pass this one up.

I appreciate you using your review to praise the 3D in "Awakening". I didn't know it was shot in 3D however it WAS impressive. So many reviewers go out of their way to slag 3D; if they've got two working eyes (and the depth perception that comes along with it) I simply don't see how they can legitimately gripe about adding that extra tool to the film makers' creative palette. I agree that "Awakening" had outstanding 3D and I'm fully sold on its spectacular use in modern movie making.
