4DX, the future of cinema viewing?

Updated: Sep 6, 2018

"4DX is a motion picture technology owned and developed by South Korean company CJ 4DPLEX, a part of the CJ Group. 4DX allows a motion picture presentation to be augmented with environmental effects such as seat motion, wind, rain, fog, lights, and scents along with the standard video and audio."

When Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released; naturally it's a spectacle that you absolutely must see on the big screen. As much as I personally didn't find it as enjoyable as the last, having your seat move around like a rollercoaster really brings a whole new meaning to movie immersion.

The seats interact flawlessly with the visuals and weather conditions, changing from a windy clifftop to an awesome space battle.

I've also since seen Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle in 4DX which although is lacking space battles, the seats also swerve to the movement of the camera, making it equally as enjoyable.

Obviously these seats aren't for everyone, as they do come with a disclaimer to those pregnant, handicapped or with back issues (etc), especially this due to the batons that hit you on the back when trying to create the feeling of falling with impact and such - especially since although I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, it can absolutely feel like you've been walloped in the chest by the end of it!

I would recommend seeing a heavy action based movie in 4DX and to give it a go at least once!

Now on in 4DX is Jurassic World: The fallen Kingdom, The Incredibles 2, Skyscraper and Mission: Impossible Fallout - check your local cineworld!
