'The Hobbit' star Martin Freeman hopes fans don't think Peter Jackson's series - which is the prequel to the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy - has developed into a movie more about CGI than substance.
Martin Freeman doesn't think 'The Hobbit' movies have focused too much on CGI.
The actor - who played Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's new Middle Earth trilogy based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien - admitted he hopes fans don't think the films have steadily sacrificed subtlety for special effects.
Martin - responding to criticism from 'Lord of the Rings' star Viggo Mortensen - joked to the Sunday Telegraph newspaper's Seven magazine: ''I've never liked him. No, I do like him.
''All I can say is: I hope that's not the case. I know Peter and the team who make those films, they'd be horrified to think they'd jettisoned all subtlety.
''Yeah, there's a log of CGI, an awful lot of that business going on. But they are still very, very interested in story. They want the human side of it to be absolutely pivotal. Beyond that? Of course it's a question of taste and I respect Viggo's opinion.''
Martin recently discussed being recognised in the street, and explained his role as Dr. Watson in 'Sherlock' earned him more attention than Bilbo Baggins.
He added: ''On the street, I would say Watson nudges it. Bilbo gets a lot. For years, of course, it was Tim [from 'The Office'] and that was my primary street-shouting thing.
''But probably now, it's an amalgamation of all of them but the front-front is Dr. Watson.''
