I don't understand all the hate towards the HFR technology. I thought it looked amazing and was nice to see a new format. I would very much like to see more action movies filmed in this format.

Critical assessment: Overall, the pace of the film was agonizingly slow (even more so than The Fellowship of the Ring). Additionally, several characters' comments seemed forced in an attempt to provide cheeky nostalgic moments in reference to the LotR movies and could've done without. The acting during many of the Hobbiton-based scenes early on seemed sub-par, as well, (especially from the various dwarves), but as the movie went on, it was able to draw more attention from viewers as what little action that occurred finally picked up, and some of the cheesiness went away (though failed to die out completely). Still, the direction of the movie stayed true to the original story well enough, major characters were portrayed impressively, and the visuals met the high expectations that have become standard for a Peter Jackson film. As a fan of the book, I look forward to experiencing the final two installments after this viewing. Hopefully the 3D will be more impressive in the next films

I liked the film over all but was a bit put out about the 3 part configuration. Believe the film should have stayed truer to the original storyline too and not trying a re-write. I realize that the "Hobbit" was the more whimsical of the books but there were times that I thought the humor was forced and certain added or enhanced scenes didn't really do much for the movie. I also had the feeling I was watching scenes from an afternoon 'Soap'. There were times the scene would go from film to video tape leaving an uncomfortable transition. Over all, I am looking forward to Pt #2 and I am sure I will see Pt #3. I can't put this movie on the same self as, "The Lord of the Rings", but it was nice to see it made and to revisit an old story from a time long ago!
