When i went to go see this movie i was blown out of the water.
I saw it in imax 3d hfr. I thought it was all in all a good movie a couple nitpicks here and there but all in all a good movie. i recommend people to go see it in 48 fps it looked amazing and the cgi was great also

Do not listen to people that say this movie is no good. I really enjoyed the way the movie flowed. The pace of the story and the action was focused on keeping the audience entertained and that is the reason we go to the movies in the first place. The special effects were simply amazing in Imax 3-d. (I highly recommend watching this in Imax 3-d by the way but it will still be very good without it). This was hands down the best movie I ever watched in 3-D. All of the characters were full of humor, heroism, and charm. I appreciated the light humor, I think it was refreshing to see that type of almost childlike humor again rapped around a spectacular adventure full of orcs, monstors, elves and of course HoBBits! Go see it, and enjoy.

This is a must see. The acting is amazing, the scenery wonderful and the story...well it's Tolkien. Peter Jackson loves these stories and it shows.

A great movie overall, although at the end I really didn't feel as invested in the characters as I did with the fellowship. It was also missing the sense of impending doom you had with LoTR. High frame rate and 3D was not necessary, although it looked beautiful, especially on the imax screen.

Even set with high expectations, I was very happy with the amazing visual effects, attention to detail, and excellent sound effects. I did not have any "dizziness" or "unease" from the visuals, just a sense of high quality.
While the story does vary from the book, it is still close enough not to infuriate. It does have a few slow parts, but overall it doesn't feel like three hours. There is some great humor and drama scenes, and I highly recommend going to see it in the HFR 3D.
