While People may hold Peter Jackson to his original claims of creating an authentic film experience of Tolkien's world, I think most of us can agree that ship sailed after Fellowship. So, no this is not literate brilliance on screen. What it is, is a jr. high boy's dream version. Utterly lacking in nuance or subltelty. It is a load of fun if you let the the kid in you go and expect nothing but escapist fun. I don't recommend seeing it in 3d, but zIMax is a must.

Great movie. Although I do not recommend seeing it in 3D. Would have been much better in 2D.

Superb. Obviously, as with any book-to-movie conversion, some of the detail that made the story such a timeless and universally-loved classic is absent; however, it is difficult to imagine a better-imaged telling. The 3D version looks sharp, but if you have the option, choose the more engaging 3D-IMAX version. More than any other film to date, the IMAX upgrade is worth the price of admission.
