Watching Prometheus, the new Alien prequel, in 3D was not as immersive experience as I has expected. It is the first 3D movie I have seen and I think I was expecting to be part of the action, or to have elements of the screen coming out to meet me in my seat. This sort of happened, but every time it did, I was aware of it so it kept reminding me that I was watching a film. I don’t think this was the desired effect – I also felt vaguely nauseous, which didn’t help.

The film itself was OK – the set design was impressive and there was an attempt to give it some philosophical depth, but it didn’t quite live up to it’s own aspirations. A good film, but not the hoped for great one.
