I totally agree with you on your review, this movie left me so underwhelmed. I thought with a great director at the helm I had much to look forward to, but boy was I wrong. There are so many odd things mixed together that did not work. I also agree there is so much that seems to be lacking. Probably my most disappointing movie of the year.

#1 I hope Jackson will return to his greatness in The Hobbit.

I enjoyed the book very much and was excited to see this film. The negative reviews it was met with are surely warranted. You are pretty much right on the money here. I thought Jackson dropped the ball big time on this one and let his ego get in the way rather than trying to tell us a powerful story. Much of the drama in the book is lost here. Also, (SPOILER ALERT) I liked how he is not found in the book....of course here, they kill Tucci off, which I thought was a lame idea. Too much style here and very little substance...which is too bad.
