I've heard very bad things about this one, but I'll give it a rental for the heck of it.

This movie is yet another in a long line of hollywood save the planet films and it makes me sick. They cant seem to make a movie that isnt about global warming. They need to quit preaching and start entertaining.

Any way to find out if this will have the '51 version's special features of the single title '51 release?
Thanks.

This was a real disappointment. I actually saw it in the theater, and man it sucked. Preachy, annoying, and almost no action. There were long stretches where it seemed *nothing* was happening on screen. I'm usually not that picky, but wow this was lame.

I'm not so sure about the movie but I'm really glad to see that Fox is following Disney's lead here and including the standard DVD. I really hope this becomes more of a normal practice. They charge well enough money for these to cover that cost and this solves the issue of watching the film in the kids' room, car, airplane etc.



Never mind. I just popped over to HDroom to read the article and it indicates that the third disc is NOT a DVD copy of the re-make but the original on Blu-Ray.
