A good movie. Lots of Violence. Very similar to Lord of the Rings. The ending left you wanting more. What happens next? I took both my kids, ages 9 and 13, both were a little scared throughout the movie.

This was my first 3D film and I was blown away by the effects! Unfortunately, I was not equally blown away by the script. I found the film a bit ponderous at times. I also thought some of the devices a bit 21st century and not at all Middle Earthly. However, all in all, I enjoyed this welcome return to Middle Earth.

I loved it. I loved the humor. Martin Freeman is amazing as Bilbo. The worst part for me was Radagast. Not sure what he adds to the storyline. I felt that the movie dragged during the Radagast part.
I had four of my kids with me, ages 13-19 and they all loved it!
I'm going to see it again in the theaters!

This movie was so much better than the critics opinions. The first hour of back story is a must for anyone who hasn't read the book or watched LOTR trilogy. Excellent movie!!! Would watch it again. Can't wait for the next one.

I was highly impressed with the film rendition of The Hobbit. It began a little slow and cheesy for me, but then immediately picked up and became amazing!! Loved Shmegal, even more than before. I have no qualms with recommending it to everyone as a must see. I plan and seeing it many more times and purchasing it asap!
