I definitely see the appeal in watching something almost unreal unfold on the open waters, while we sit safely in our seats watching magic become reality.
Watching it in 3D only boosted the experience, I felt. Some people purposely avoid 3D because they say it takes them out of the experience, that it's more of a gimmick.
Itís both heaven and hell at the same time. Some gorgeous scenes show the water as the sky. It does not seem to reflect the sky, but be it. The water is something to be amazed by yet also frightened by.
