Superbly done in a technical sense, and it makes almost every improvement possible to what was - narrative-wise and pacing-wise - the weakest of the sequel trilogy. Won't be...

Massive fan of Jackson's LOTR trilogy, but avoided the Hobbit films like the plague after enduring the first film's stupidities and self indulgence. And 3 films? Surely 2 would have...

A radically altered and often very successful edit. I’m glad I gave Matrix Reloaded one more go. I hated the original and didn’t much like other fanedits...
