I never watched this when I was a kid, but I finally saw it the other day with my wife…in 3D. It was very cheesy in places, which was expected, but overall I thought it was very good. Much better than Avatar, in my opinion. What I didn’t expect was the boat crash to be quite so disturbing. Parts of it were very unsettling. That’s probably one reason I wasn’t allowed to watch it when it came out.
But I feel like a normal American now that I’ve finally experienced it. The fact that I hadn’t seen it was my dirty secret for a while, but now I can hide no more.
