The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

It’s a re­turn to Mid­dle Earth as Bilbo Bag­gins, Gan­dalf the Grey and 12 dwarves em­bark on a quest to re­claim the lost dwarf king­dom from the Dragon Smaug. It’s Peter Jack­son, if not at his best, at his al­most best with an epic tale and fan­tas­tic sets. Fans won’t be dis­ap­pointed. Even if it loses a bit from be­ing on a smaller screen the op­por­tu­nity to pause for a drink break (the movie runs for 169 min­utes) is a bonus. Back are TheLord­OfThe Rings “reg­u­lars” Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weav­ing, and Elijah Wood while Martin Free­man makes a great Bilbo Bag­gins. ★★★✩ Ex­tras: Can be streamed or down­loaded on to PCs, Macs and An­droid de­vices. ★★★
