Not as good as I expected

Without giving away the details, the movie is incredibly long and the ending just plain sucked. For all the hype, i was definitely disappointed. To its credit, it does have some very beautiful scenes and some very funny moments.

Better than Expected

I was not especially interested in seeing this film. However, I was really pleasantly surprised. Yes, we whiz through dozens of exciting adventure, one after another; excellent graphics and creativity, but a tendency to get tedious after almost 3 hours. What saves this movie, however, is that the story revolves around wonderful characters who are lovingly portrayed, and their growing connection to each other. And yes, the battles whiz by, you get the impression, but do not suffer through excessive graphic violence.

I echo much of what others have said. Great performances and visuals. Great story; the movie was too long. I'd say 2 hours and 25 minutes instead of 2 hours and 49 would have done the trick. If you liked LOTR you must see this. It is just too long.

The Hobbit is an excellent film

Other than a few chase scenes going slightly too long, I felt the film is wonderful. Brilliantly directed and performed. I enjoyed part one of The Hobbit so much, that I will be going back to Middle Earth very soon.

This film is phenomenal the scripts, acting, cinematics everything is excellent! I was afraid this movie was going to be a bust and not be able to compete with the LOTR but this definitely is up there on the LOTR pedestal. Peter Jackson and the cast did an excellent job!!!!!!
