"As with the majority of such feverishly anticipated tentpole films, AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY struggles to meet these expectations, and then some. This is due in part to Jackson’s hubris in assuming audiences are game for an unnecessarily expanded trilogy based on one brisk 300-page book, resulting in an inexplicably long near-three-hour run-time that is self-indulgent even by his standards, as well as his bold but ultimately misguided decision to shoot and screen the film in 3D at 48 frames-per-second (twice the speed of a regular film), which proves to be just another distracting gimmick that places the film in the creatively bankrupt arena of George Lucas-esque theme-park-cinema and lacks the majesty of his previous trilogy."
