I’m being lenient here because I’m hoping that the upcoming second and third films will offer a complete story when put together.
I wasn’t a fan of the silly tone of this movie, and certain parts really seemed to drag along.
Some of that “silly tone” came about due to the design of some of the characters. I can’t imagine anyone but Martin Freeman playing Bilbo, though.
Still not a fan of CGI characters in live action movies.
Three hours is still way too long for any movie.
