I was entertained for the whole 2h50min or so, I thought it looked great (I saw the 2D version as 3D tends to give me headaches), and you know what was the best part of this movie? I didn't have to watch Elijah Wood make THE SAME FUCKING FACE FOR THREE HOURS! Also, Orlando Bloom is not in it, which is a huge plus as well. And it has Martin Freeman, who I've liked a lot ever since I saw him in the original "The Office", good casting there.
I didn't think the first act -which plays out more like a comedy- was that great, but it wasn't bad, and when it got going it got really good, and as I said, looked great. Granted, I'm a bit of a geek for this shit and really loved "Lord of the Rings" movies and the book, and have also read "The Hobbit", "Silmarillion" and "Unfinished Tales", so maybe I'm a bit biased. Nevertheless, I liked it and recommend it to everyone. Go see it.
Yeah I was surprised to see so many negative reviews on this movie. Your review sounds honest, not like the critics who nit-pick everything until it becomes negative. Definitely seeing it this weekend!ReplyDelete
Went to see it with friends, they almost had to drag me out from the theater. Big fan of the books and I, despite having read nearly everything I could have gotten my claws on, was at the edge of my seat. 2D. 3D's pain in the ass to somebody with glasses, like myself.ReplyDelete
