    Review of The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug in 4K 3D.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     montebubbles told me, 'Our expectations were high because we're in the business and we're comparing this Hobbit (Part 2, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug") with last year's Hobbit (Part 1, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"), which was the first full length 4K movie ever done. It met our expectations for the uses of 4K and it solves the problem with 3D action sequences and actually makes 3D watchable.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Since late last night we have been in two cities to see the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the midnight showing and the first showing of the next day. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is 3D done right. It was shot with 3D cameras by those that knew how to use the equipment.

    There are those that are as much against 4K film as they were against 3D film. It is though the future of the industry.

    While the USA hates all there is about 3D it is the money cow for the film industry out this country so much the fact that the USA now seems to be an afterthought in the world when it comes films. 4K takes all that is bad about 3D except glasses and fixes it.

    The film itself is a good movie but not a great film. It is much better than the first film except for length, it is way too long and an opening that belonged in the first film and an ending that looks like the projectionist had part two and three of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on one reel and had to go to the bathroom so he just stopped it left the booth.

    Is it worth the cost to see it, look no further then too one of the best white water action sequences you ever see done in a film. Then there is the effects which you know showed the true cost on the screen. We went to two cities and paid to see the film so we can tell you that it was worth the cost to us.
