The movie was good but too much fighting with very little plot. It was like hours of going around in circles going nowhere. I even started to fall asleep at one point and was hoping the movie would soon be over. I hope the next one is more entertaining.

The film was good, but seemed like the 3 hours that it was. The previous movies suspended time for me, but I was aware of every second. Never really got lost in the story. Still, if you're a fan, you'll have to see it. Let's hope the next installments bring back the magic.

I really liked that it stayed true to the theme of LOTR and it was a good movie. My only complaint was that there were really no good-looking leading men like Viggo Mortensen and Orlando Bloom as in the original LOTR trilogy to hold my interest. It also was slow to get moving, but I think that the second movie will be much better now that the group is well on their quest and the action is beginning.

Awesome. Lived up to my expectations. If you see it in 3D beware of motion sickness if you are prone. I personally didn't have any trouble. If you loved the pace of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy this could feel a little slow, but I enjoyed every minute.

Very well done and loved every minute of it. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we had booked the movie in 3D. It made it more fun and really made you feel like you were in the picture with all of the characters. We got of the movie and had no idea it was as long as it was. Time really flies and you never feel like you're sitting in a theater for 3 hours. Great entertainment.
