Way too much "prettiness", not enough pure story, and it looks like it was thrown together in pieces, flashbacks and dialogue.
It looks way too "graphically enhanced". Some of the story is taken away by the Alice in Wonderland looking characters and colors.
The dwarves look like cartoon characters, the orcs look like crap. I don't know why I thought I might like the movie.
The LOTR trilogy was great, but this is a big letdown, even with some of the original cast, it sill didn't help.
No doubt because they greedily are making it into a trilogy and there just wasn't enough story for it.
The Alamo remake. Good movie, a good remake for a change.
