Warner Bros. previewed 10 minutes of Peter Jackson's heavily anticipated "The Hobbit" at CinemaCon this week, and while some critics are gushing over the "mind-blowing" new look, some say it may be too realistic.
The criticism comes from Jackson's decision to shoot 3D in 48 frames per second, which is double the industry standard.
As highlighted by The A.V. Club, some critics are complaining that the "perfectly blur-free frame rate robs the film of any 'cinematic' quality" and resembles a soap opera look.
Jackson has warned audiences the new approach would take time to adjust to.
You won't get to decide for yourself until "The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey" is released in theaters Dec. 14. The conclusion to J.R.R. Tolkien's legendary novel, "The Hobbit: There and Back Again", will be released December 13, 2013.
