Martin Freeman is adamant his fellow Hollywood star Viggo Mortensen is  is wrong to accuse the makers of "The Hobbit" trilogy of letting special effects ruin the story.

Mortensen, who played Aragorn in "The Lord of the Rings" franchise, revealed in an interview in May that he dislikes "The Hobbit" prequel films because the computer-generated imagery is not subtle and overpowers the rest of the movie.

Freeman, who starred as Bilbo Baggins in "The Hobbit" series, has now spoken out to defend the films and director Peter Jackson, telling Britain's Seven magazine, "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 lot of CGI, an awful lot of that business going on. But they are still very, very interested in the 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."
