While I would never say Peter Jackson does any film "poorly" I would say that "The Hobbitt" has many good points- but a few flaws. These "flaws" are mainly too many battle shots, which become cumbersome. Also a couple of situations which would have been "impossible" in real life. For example when the characters survive events that obviously they wouldn't have. The gore of the battles betray Jackson's tendency to love horror . Indeed he did some horor movies early in his career.
The plot is rather difficult to follow, the expressions captured in Golem's eyes very true to life actually. Bravo for that, the filming was excellent, a few precious moments.... But overall I found myself getting bored in the fighting parts of the movie- which went on too long!
