I had read some professional reviewers comments regarding the new 48 frame format, saying that it didn't work as such stunning clarity spoiled the illusion of the film. For this reason we booked seats 2 rows back from our favourite spot, as I thought that it might be too much visual information to process in the action shots (and there are plenty of those). I found there was nothing to worry about and the extra detail afforded by 48fps is great, both for close shots, and the great NZ vistas. Maybe some eyes see it differently, but to me it simply took away the usual layer of blur that 24fps has and drew me closer to the film.
My only regret is that I couldn't hear the sound in Dolby Atmos but in NZ that is only currently possible in one location - the Embassy theatre in Wellington (where the world premiere was held).
