Tolkien Fan Level: 1
Film Format Seen? Imax 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes
 Rings!

runtime was fine, story seamed too simplistic and drawn out for what it was. less beleivability (if I can use that term for a fantasy film)than the the LOTR trillogy.. an example would be.. 14 charecters being chased hard and fast by killer goblins, falling from great hieghts, arrows and axes being flown about....and not one of the 14 even has a scratch....not one single scratch....but overall very fun entertaining. the art of the film was steller. as far as 48FPS I barely noticed a difference, seemed much clearer, more depth to the 3D than usual.. but not the epic advance in film it was marketed as. I did not feel sick or anything...
