Positives

They (Jaunt) certainly got the VR community's and Hollywood's attention with catchwords such as
“Computational Photograhy” (in a VR film context) which lead to sizable investments.

Negatives

Clear mis-sync in stereoscopic capture.
Another glaring artifact is “abrupt depth loss” in some parts of the film.
