The Hobbit

The Hobbit 3D Review:
Is it worth watching The Hobbit in 3D?

Yes, it is worth seeing in 3D.

With double the frames per second, this movie is said to be ultra-realistic and very engrossing. If possible, try to find a theatre that is playing The Hobbit in 48fps. Be warned: it's not for everyone, some compare it to the feeling of made-for-tv movies and soap operas.

The 3D wasn't detracting, but I don't think it added much to be worth an extra cost. I want to see the 2D version to compare. The high framerate added quality and detail that is usually missed/blurred, but at times at the expense of cheapening sets/makeup/effects. It was strange at first, but I did get used to it a little way in. Definitely can see how some may get distracted or even feel sick from the extra motion detail. I'd say it's worth the experience in 48fps, go 3D if you don't mind the glasses but you won't miss anything in 2D.

Unfortunately, the IMAX theater I went to did not have this in high frame rate... I should have done my research beforehand! I didn't feel like the 3D made the movie any better, and at the regular framerate it made the action scenes choppy.

This movie did not need to be in 3D at all. the 3D had its moments but was as boring as this movie.

Actually, the 3D effects were just on par/average but due to the length time of the film, I would say no to 3D. Better to be enjoyed in 2D for the first part of The Hobbit.

Not even 1 single 3D effect on the whole movie. Total waste of money for 3d. Good story though.
