this is the first movie i've seen at the theatres in two years and my first true 3d movie ever. wow, a great story and wonderful visuals of paris, clocks, and the train station. a great tale for teenagers and grownups. it had a few moments where the story stalled a bit but i would not cut a minute of it. a movie to treasure for years. the two young teens were terrific and there were many oscar worthy moments. i would recommend that anyone who has not seen 3d movies yet to try this one, it transports you to a different world.
