I was really excited to see this movie after reading the book. What a major let down... so DISAPPOINTING. I wanted to leave halfway through the film but my boyfriend wanted to watch the rest since we paid for it. Throughout the whole movie we were both shaking our heads. I understand that movies don't follow the book completely but most of them leave out information, not make things up. They completely changed how every event was suppose to happen. The only thing I liked was the HFR... looks really cool. I will NOT see the other 2 movies and if you're a true fan of the book you wouldn't either.

This movie was soo good, that I thought it even surpassed the first three movies. The action was almost non-stop, and that lead to a raucous ride through Middle-Earth. I thought that the movie covered the essential scenes, and that it was overall very, very good. It's definitely a must-see movie and Martin Freeman is bloody brilliant, as always. The cinematography was really nice as well with sweeping views of the Shire in luscious 3D animation. Some of the scenes were supposedly shot in Whales, which is one of my favorite locales. (I too thought this scenery to be "Middle-Earth-esque" when I visited!) And the acting is really good as well, especially from Martin Freeman, Ian McKellan, and the actor playing the part of Oakenshield, staring down his enemies with an intensity. The ending cannot be spoiled, as the movie ends half-way through the story with the awakening of the dragon. (Shhh! Don't tell!) This Hobbit movie comes highly recommended.

Not like Lord of the rings

This movie is a little different than the Lord of the rings,i think. In the beginning is so slow and boring, when it starts to pick up it does get a little better. The men could be a little bit more handsome. The lord of the rings men were handsome. The actors are good and the effects are great and the scenery is excellent. I would have to watch this movie again just to watch some parts i might not have picked up on.

A disappointing movie in comparison to the Lord of the Rings

When you look at this movie in comparison to LotR, it's a let-down. The quest isn't nearly as epic. The protagonists never seem to be in much danger. Without going into spoilers, the fellowship of the ring endured casualties that made the story more gripping because it reflected the gravity of the danger. These guys shrug off stuff that would have killed the whole fellowship outright.

The Hobbit was amazing. As a fan of both The Lord of the Rings movies and The Hobbit the book, I couldn't be happier with the movie.
