The Hobbit is a very fun movie! It is not as well planned as Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings, but it is a good fantasy about dwarves on a mission to reclaim their kingdom. Gollum steals the show in the riddles in dark scene. It also leaves you on a big cliffhanger at the end, to leaving you waiting for The Desolation of Smaug, out December 2013. The Hobbit is quite an enjoyable experience at the movies!

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.

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!!

Both my girlfriend and I enjoyed the movie. Great visuals, good flow. I read The Hobbit several times and I went to the film without any particular expectations. I can see where a book purist would have been disappointed but we're already looking forward to the next part of the story.
