Personally the movie itself is not an action type movie. It's a basic story about a group of rich people and their lives and maybe a couple of suspenseful things that happen like murder but there is nothing in the story that would be so action packed it would need to be in 3D....I mean nothing....they must be adding a lot to the story that isn't really there because it's really just a 1920's soap opera.

Thank you. That was the first thing that popped in my head when I saw this: why in the world does this need to be 3D? This isn't (at least shouldn't) be some special-effects movie. No action. It's just a plain "boring" drama. There's no need for 3D.

Yes, I remember the story from the one Robert Redford did and I really didn't enjoy that one because it was so slow and boring as you say JL. This movie would have to be altered alot for it to have anything that would require 3D visuals in it.
