It actually wasn't horrible. Not as good as its predecessors, but far from horrible. That said, if Jackson ever does direct an episode of Doctor Who, he will be constrained by budget. So I wouldn't go in expecting him to use all these fancy filming techniques he can get away with on his massively-budgeted feature film projects.
Maybe my expectations were too high, but I felt hugely let down by it. The pacing was off to a large degree. I also didn't like that it felt like I was watching an XBox game. Too smooth. Too glassy. If this is the future of movies, I don't like it.
