Not a fan
This could have been great, but simply isn't. This movie is the opposite of the approach taken for the Lord of the Rings movies. Those movies compressed books for the sake of making good films, and generally did a great job of retaining the flavor of the original movies. This movie sacrifices the flavor of the Original, by inserting ridiculous stunt sequences reminiscent of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
If you're a fan, you'll likely be disappointed. Bad show, Peter Jackson.
