Verdict: Four out of five stars. Martin Freeman is perfectly cast, and The Hobbit is an epic, awe-inspiring tale, with sometimes astonishing CGI, that is full of heart. But it is at least an hour too long, and the much touted technology that made the film at 48 frames per second (fps) often works against the film instead. Teeters dangerously close to self-indulgence in parts.
