The Hobbit is for Ring fans for sure.

I don't know how good this movie trilogy is going to do. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was amazing for everyone to see. So if your a huge fan then you won't want to miss The Hobbit. If the Lord of the Rings was just so-so for you then you probably won't want to invest 3 hours, let alone waiting 2 more years for the rest of this back story. This movie alone seems like it was made for the people that knew the Lord of the Rings already. If you've never seen the Lord of the Rings trilogy then it might feel like you've missed something. Especially when you see Elijah Wood for 5 minutes and then 3 hours of a bunch of nobody's. Yup, to really appreciate this movie you'll probably have to be a fan already. I am so this review may be biased. So go see it anyway!! =-)

I found the beginning to be a real let down because it was too silly. And then I found the middle to be a real let down because it was just one battle after another. It got to be tedious. But then I sort of liked the end, but not enough to go to see parts II and III.

3D Distraction

I was absolutely distracted by the gratuitous 3D shots and 48fps filming. It was as if The Hobbit was the first 3D movie ever made, and we were "learning" how it works. I don't need someone to stand out in a portal. That's not how the world looks.

Good graphics, but confusing storyline

I left the theater after nearly three hours confused about where this movie was suppose to go. If you are not a fan, or have not read the book, enjoy the effects, but don't expect to leave a fan.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D

It was great. The 3D was fantastic and the computer graphic scene generation is fantastic. There were several times when it looked like the animals were coming right out of the screen. I thought it was pretty true to the story, even if it was a little long. It helps if you've read the book.
