Great movie, if you a fan of the Rings films this one fits nicely. Most reviews I read complained of it being slow to develop. I thought it was great.

Best Yet!

This is now my favorite of the series, mostly because the characters seem more real, not as flashy and extreme as in the other 3 movies. I also appreciated the humor in The Hobbit: very subtle but with perfect comic timing. My only disappointment was that it ended - - - I could have watched this whole story unfold for hours more. Still, I'm glad to have the next two to look forward to; only wish they didn't keep a whole year between releases.

Picked up in a perfect place, made sense (except one item that know the films from before will see...hint, Gandalph caries it and so did Stryder in movies past) enjoyed every second, Middle Earth is real and we're going to visit again next year!!

Best adaptation of The Hobbit ever

The movie was totally worth the price and lack of sleep for the midnight premiere. It was extremely faithful to the book, adding new dimension to Tolkien's marvelous story-telling. The combination of special effects, computer animation and acting was seamless and believable. The characters were well-developed with lots of back-story to give depth to their role. The riddle scene in Gollum's cave was perfect! Many have lamented the length of 3 hours. I didn't want it to end! I'm ready to see it again, to read the original book again, to see the next installment. Marvelous job, Peter Jackson! Marvelous job!

Well worth it

I enjoyed the Hobbit. It does a good job of getting through the first part of the book and sets up for the next film which should be exciting. They include some parts not in the book that make an effort to tie into the Fellowship trilogy which I personally think works. The digital 3D was alright, not that impressive. Seems like the push is to get folks to see this in IMax 3D rather than improving the digital 3D, which is a disappointment. Still, the Hobbit is worth seeing and I look forward to the next one!
