5 Step aside Frodo!tazzys | 16/04/2013 | See all tazzys's reviews (59)Firstly this feature is split over two discs. I dont find this a problem at all, its a good time to goto the toilet or get another cold one out of the fridge, but some people may not like this...I found the film to be a little slow to start with but its introducing you to alot of new charaters plus it follows the book very well and it certainly picks up. The story is very enjoyable and full of excitment, emotion and laughs. Its a true classic and equally as good as the 1st in the LOTR's series. There are some really nice bits in 3D aswell. Its probably not the best 3D feature Ive seen but its certainly up there with the best.The introduction of the dwarves is Brilliant and they do not disappoint, from the charaters to the graphics in the battle scenes. Again the acting and the choices for the charaters is top draw. I think I might just end up enjoying this series even more than the LOTR's. I found Frodos charater to become abit annoying towards the end, I dont think ill have the same issues with Bilbo especially in the company of the Dwarves. (might be on my own there, but hey so what) The Dragon, when he makes an appereance is certainly the most impressive adoptation Ive ever seen in a film, and extra special in 3D. Once again, what a wonderfull fantasy adventure! Top marks and fun for all the family.
