Ang Lee‘s latest film, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk is a mouthful of a title, but one that is stirring up quite the talk among film-goers.
For starters, it will be presented in 4K 3D with HFR, which stands for high frame rate, which many dismissed back when Peter Jackson presented it with his first two (?) Hobbit films.
It creates a somewhat jarring effect for viewers that feels sped up and makes the film look like a “soap opera”. I’m open to the format and the technological advances if it makes for an even more immersive film, but not if it acts as a giant distraction.
The rest of the film is up in the air, with this final trailer not really swaying me in either direction. Look, Vin Diesel is in this, plus a not vampire version of Kristen Stewart.
I’ll give it a go.
