It's funny that a lot of people are saying that the hobbit " falls short to the lord of the rings" or " it's not as good", since, it is NOT the lord of the rings, it's a completely different book, and although it is true, that it is part of the same universe, and i part of the same story, the source material is different in many ways. The Hobbit was written as children's book, and it therefore, has a softer tone to it, it is meant to be scary for a 10 year old, not a story about the world being destroyed by an evil force that is almost indestructible. comparing movies to their predecessors and having high expectations is a big mistake. yes they should match in a lot of ways ( and in the ways that it counts it mostly delivers) but it is it's own thing, and it should exist as such.
There are complaints, however. ti don't remember an albino ork following the pack, it felt a little forced, and gollum should have looked like in the prologue of the fellowship not like the end of return.
