"I wouldn't characterize either as exceptional.
As I posted... Amazon makes no pretense of supporting connection slower than 1.5MBs and their only other encoding scheme is 720p with a 3.5 MBs connection. Their idea of dynamic streaming is to…"
"Your Amazon Watch on Demand brings you 720p... if you have cable or better 3.5 MBs connectivity. Otherwise you get to watch 480p.

"Got to watch it last night...
Overall I liked the movie.
Good plot and lots of tension and action but required a bit of deliberate effort to watch.

"Well that's good to know.
did a bit more reading. I wonder how much of this is real and how much of it is a clever manipulation.
