Go and see it. If you have the option to take in the 3D version I’d recommend it. Regardless of whether or not you like the movie it gives you the feeling that you are watching something revolutionary. I can remember having the same feeling watch Toy Story 10 or 15 years ago.

Further (and more importantly) I’d recommend checking out Seamus Heaney’s translation. If you are too lazy to read it, he will read it to you for $15.99 at iTunes. It is a tremendous work.
