Reviews:
"Gollum is back in all his scrofulous glory, and several set pieces fill the screen with a wealth of detail that would have left Tolkien reeling in astonishment." - 12/13/2012 Wall Street Journal


"At its best, it recaptures the RINGS movies’ breadth, detail, and staggering sense of beauty. Jackson retains the sense of an entire world created on a vast scope for a film." - 12/13/2012 A.V. Club


"Freeman’s the all-too-human face of Jackson’s gargantuan vision, his performance indicating that the emotional stakes will keep pace with the ramped-up challenges ahead..." - 12/13/2012 Total Film


“It’s a far more humorous fantasy than RINGS, seeing absurdity in grandeur and vice versa.” - 02/01/2013 Sight and Sound
