 Blurred Vision

| | See all wonkafizz's reviews (11)

The film itself is very enjoyable. A solid 4 stars. The reason I have given it three stars is because certain scenes appear blurry. The crisp blu ray effect is lost as the higher 48fps causes the dramatic shots of scenery to become unclear. So in order to make the film a better 3D experience at the cinema it has become a worse experience for those not watching it in 3D. It is a problem that needs to be addressed and not just blown over by Jackson.

 boring

this film is the phantom menace of the franchise. its boring and full of pointless and convenient scenes. Just hope the trilogy gets better from here on in.

 Another awesome middle earth movie

In my opinion,the lord of the rings movies are the best movies ever made,and whilst this is not as deep or moving,it still is leagues above other fantasy movies,and featured much more action than i expected.
The picture is 10/10 as is the sound

I never actually saw this in the cinema, but heared mixed reviews and especially complains of the 3D being blurred. At first I thought the complaints were right, as the film does take a while to get going, but then again so did Fellowship of the Rings. The comedy elements at the start grated a little, but once the band leave the Shire the film really does take hold and again you know you are back in Middle Earth again. Martin Freeman is a reverlation as Bilbo. Again the film is full of narrow escapes great creatures and a fantastic music score that echo's the original trilogy leaving goosebumps. Familiar faces come back in, including Christopher Lee's reprises his role but best of all Gollum. The locations as you would expect are beautiful. This version of the film is not perfect ( but when you look at the Lord of the Rings trilogy that did have it's faults also ) The imperfections could be put down to cuts for running time that will no doubt be re-inserted when the extended cut comes out, that again we'll all be shelling out for, but even so this first part of the Hobbit trilogy is definatly as good as what has come before and leaves us gagging for parts 2 and 3.
