Went to see it a few days ago and loved it. The special effects were amazing. I had the choice between 2D or 3D version so I chose the 3D since I was in one of those, "okay... impress me" moods. I have to say the 3D was done very well. Nothing in your face like older 3D movies were like. Sometimes very subtle 3D effects and sometimes not so subtle. Very cool stuff.
If you are on the fence about it, go see it. It's a worthy sequel in my opinion.
Now for a rant... $7.50 for a matinee in 2D. $11 for a matinee in 3D and I hear the IMAX 3D is almost $25. Double You Tee Eff?! Really? I'm tellin' ya, movie prices are out of control. Almost as out of control as the concession stand. $12 for a small popcorn and medium soda is ridiculous.
