I couldn't wait to see this movie. I am a HUGE L.O.T.R's. fan and when this came out I was at the theaters. I wish I would of never needed seen this movie. It was so bad that it ruined the L.O.T.R's. movies for me. It was so drawn out and had no story line. It was such a terrible movie. They are making it into a 2 part but it had nothing to do with the L.O.T.R's. movies. I don't know what to say other than it was so bad. My wife has never fallen asleep at the movies and she was falling asleep. It was terrible. Don't waste your money. I wouldn't even pay 1 dollar to get it from the Red Box it was that bad!!!

Overall a good movie, setting up the next movie, I did notice they used information from the appendices of Lord of The Rings, good job of the screen writers to incorporate that info to help with the bridge to the prequel.

I was just forced to see this movie with my friend because she loves lord of the rings. At first I thought it seemed like a lame movie. HOWEVER, during the movie my heart couldn't stop beating because of all the action scenes. It was disappointing that the movie took so long yet didn't actually complete the book. But overall, VERY WELL MADE

It was so fun to see my "old friends" again. The characters came back into my world with warm recollection and I enjoyed seeing them - especially in the earlier time. Saw it in the regular mode which I'm glad. We had thought possibly 3D, but after reading reviews, decided against it. Glad we did. It was sensational on the big screen. What a nice holiday treat!

Our family loves J.R.R. Tolkien books, especially The Hobbit. My husband must have read it 8 times as a kid growing up, and last read it to our oldest daughter. He was very happy with the movie - he said "Peter Jackson did an excellent job sticking to the book." Personally, I would've sat through 8hrs straight to watch it all at once instead of in installments, but I am happy with where they left off.
