This movie has a different look to it. The 3D is subtle but effective. Very enchanting, and spiritual in subject manor and look. Thirteen dwarfs including the King , who looks a lot like Jesus, take a hobbit on a trek to save their home.
There is a lot of violence and scary episodes with wolves and trolls and other monsters so I don't think small kids should see this. Everyone else would probably appreciate it. It is a little long, but it really moved pretty quick and I enjoyed it never the less.

Very good movie. We know what to expect and it delivers. Maybe a bit long but enjoyable and worth seeing. If you liked Lord of the Rings then you will like this.

Peter Jackson has done it again! I wasn't sure what to expect, and honestly, the confused reviews from people had me lowering expectations. Wow, did the film come through! I was enthralled from the start just as I was 10 years ago. The vivid scenery, compelling story monologues, dynamic characters, and fast pace kept me glued to my seat. Freeman portrays Bilbo just as Tolkien did, and McKellen brings back the old Gandalf with new insight into the character. The dwarves add so much color to the plot with their varied personalities and stories. Memorable scenes from the book are given new life without anything being taken away. See it alone or with friends, but see it!

I'm into this type of movies, so I got all excited to go see it!!! Well... When I walked out of the theater I wish there had been a camera there waiting for my reaction. It was bad. The only thing I liked were the characters and the special effects on them, but that's all this was! There is nothing more to this movie. My wife and I were so incredibly disappointed that we couldn't believe it. You know when you're dancing a great song and the DJ cuts that song? That's this movie. Movie structure: 1.Setup, 2.Conflict, 3.Resolution (well... there's no resolution. The setup was WaaaaY too long. Then... Why didn't the hobbit use the ring when he was in the trees to help in the fight? That was stupid! A mystery door mentioned in the whole movie wasn't even in the movie!!! The riddles conversation took for ever!!! way too long that scene. So disappointing this movie. You can wait until it's out on TV.
