Film Format Seen? 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes

Loved the film and the new technology. I found that I really didn't notice the 3D I was just dragged into the story. The extra material e.g. The story of the coming of smaug and the expulsion of the Dwarves from Erabor was really well done and added so much to the whole tale. The addition of Radagast and poisoning of the Green Wood was also great. And the Riddles in the Dark, absolutely brilliant theatre. Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis deserve oscars for such a gripping performance.

My only critiscm would be the Thunder Battle and escape from the Goblins scenes. Both were a little "over the top" - but that is pure Peter Jackson and he has done such a magnificent interpretation - I can forgive this little over indulgence.

Loved the film, loved the 3D and 48 fps. The world created is so believable, the characters are all great. I can't wait for The Desolation of Smaug in 12 months time.
