David Gavilan’s review published on Letterboxd :
I was avoiding this film because I read the book as a teenager and it was one of the most boring novels I've read... And turning that short book into 3 movies, sounded like 3 times boring... That being said, I loved Lord of the Rings (both the books and the movies), so I was still curious. When I saw the opportunity to watch this on TV, I gave it a try and it was actually quite entertaining. I think it's a Lord-of-the-ringified version of the original Hobbit. You get the same action and sense of adventure as in the Lord of the Rings movies, so it was great.
