Sorry, but that's a bit misleading. The reviews are definitely mixed, no question, but they are leaning toward positive in most cases. "People love to hate it" - I don't think so. 75% on Rotten Tomatoes is not an idication of "hate".
My expectations are definitely tempered. They were not getting blown out of proportion to begin with, because I don't think I ever expected this to match LOTR. And while some reviews have been disappointing, I'm still hoping to enjoy the film on its own merits, even with Jackson's indulgences. I'm happy to return to Middle Earth regardless. We'll see how it goes over with me.
