Top critical review
Gorgeous movie, lackluster writing

I'm really glad the Hobbit made it to a modern big screen. And I get what Jackson was trying to do, filling in the gaps of the Hobbit with the extra story material out there. But... I don't know. Too much action. Like, non-stop action. Where's the heart? The story? I'm kind if sad I paid money for this, honestly. I should have just checked it out from the library. That said, the UHD version is absolutely beautiful.
