To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought the Blu-ray thinking it was working in Canada. But no!!! I did not open the Blu-ray and something was broken already inside. I tried to return it. The only way to return it is to pay shipping…60$ Canadian wow!!! So yeah I lost 40$…
I never imagined that Jackson could produce a film of the Hobbitt and especially The Lord of the Rings with fidelity. He seems to have done it. Towards the end I became quite tired of so much war, but it was excellently done. Horrible orcs! Marvelous Mirkwood forest; Fascinating to see Turner as one of the dwarfs; Legolas and Turiel amazing with their bow action! Incredible dragon Smaug!
While the film version isn't perfect in its worthy attempt to emulate Tolkien, It is a serious & honest representation. Earlier reviews have complained of the amount of visual & dramatic exposition, but seen as a whole this does an excellent job of leading into the director's Lord of the Rings films. More than worth it!
