    Just a bit of advice to anyone that cant handle
    those camera shots where the director insists on carrying
    and spinning the camera in all directions.

    I sat down to watch this last night and only managed 30mins.
    my eyes were spinning and i was sweating badly.
    I also get this effect when i try to play certain types of video games. which is why i dont play them.

    i dont suffer with elipysy.

    The whole film used this camera technique, im ok with a few seconds of camera moving up/down left right all in a split second
    but an hour and half no way.

    So if there is anyone out there that suffers this too
    then avoid irreversable.

    i think its all down to balance in the inner ear getting confused.
    i cant ride fair ground rides, spin around in circles,
    im a car sickness sufferer.

    shame this as i was looking forward to the film.

    oh well.....

    the whole film isn't like that. the camera gets gradually more stable as time reverses and the characters' lives return to their prior 'normality'. the film finishes with an amazing shot which features intense flashing light so that is why there is an epilepsy warning on the box. it's not an easy film to watch through to the end but it is an experience if you can manage it...

    well just watch 30min at a time the film is 90minutes, and the camera gets stabler with time. so you might be able to watch the last hour without problems;(
    the film is well worth it
