Yes, Yes, Yes! The Live-Action Digital 3-D Revolution Begins...
15 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

My Bloody Valentine 3-D pulled out all the stops and is every bit worth the ticket price.

I admit that my expectations were pretty low at first, but as a horror fan and a 3-D fan, I went to the theater anyway not trying to get my hopes up too much.

From the very beginning, the story, action, and the visuals hooked me into it with lots of twists, turns, and shocks. Digital 3-D movies over the past few years have only offered family films or animation in 3-D.

Finally, Live-Action Digital 3-D that WORKS!! A MUST see movie if you like blood, gore, and full nudity; all in 3-D! A few story problems in the third act but everything else makes up for it. The movie is meant to be fun anyway, and it was!

Bravo to the filmmakers for making this movie entertaining and visually stunning. We are off to a great start in 3-D movies!
