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

I saw the movie in IMAX 3-D format and I have to say what an experience. The scenery was spectacular as usual. If you saw the Lord of the Rings trilogy that is not a surprise, but seeing it in 3D was incredible. When I heard Guillermo del Toro was directing it I was afraid the movie was going to take on a dark look like something out of Pan's Labyrinth, but I am very glad that Peter Jackson kept the integrity of the film in line with the feel of the book and the look of the series. The cast was exceptional, along with the regulars we saw in the LOTR trilogy, we were introduced to some of the best talent Britain has to offer like Ken Scott, Aidan Turner, James Nesbit and Martin Freeman, and the best decision in my opinion which is Richard Armitage as Thorin. His performance as the would be dwarf king was regal and powerful. This first film is the first of a roaring good time for Tolkien fans and fans of the LOTR movies.
