I liked the movie but some of the characters were a bit corny. It kind of reminded me of how the first 3 Star Wars movies were awesome then they put out the 4th movie with that character JarJar Binks. It just had some songs and characters that made this a more childish version than the other 3 LOTR movies. What was that on the brown wizards head? Was that supposed to be bird poop? Why? Why put that in the movie? It did not need to be in there. Or that silly song they sang when all the guests showed up to BB home. What was that? I need to watch the origional 3 LOTR movies again but I don't remember that much corny stupidity. With all that said, once the movie got going it got better and somewhat less silly. The crisp and clear picture was awesome. The graphics in this movie were state of the art and awesome to view. Hopefully the next one will be more like the first 3. I would say overall it was enjoyable to watch.
