I should have waited to rent it.
I had a weird experience - anytime there was camera motion I got dizzy, this was in the 2D version. I don't know if it was just that I'm weird, or if it has something to do with it being originally intended for 3D HFR, but it made the experience much less enjoyable for me, especially because I had never had that kind of effect before.
The narration at the beginning is excessively long - in general the movie is excessively long, I found myself wondering often how close to the end we were. i couldn't help feeling through the entire thing that there were parts that were totally unnecessary. I've heard some folks say it adds to the overall story and it makes it better for that, but I just feel like it's a money grab, simple as that.
The story itself is great, I enjoyed the acting for the most part, and it certainly looked pretty most of the time. I wasn't very impressed with the pale orc's CG, nor the very obvious 3D moments.
