See it in

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.

Had a great time - a wild ride!

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!

Good Tolkien entertainment

I liked the movie overall. But I think the 48fps detracts from the experience. In sweeping pans of landscapes the scene blurs, not like normal motion blur but more like an out of focus blur, then as the pan slows to a stop the scene pops into focus. Aside from that it is an exciting story well played by all. A must see for all Tolkien fans.

Excellent movie! Will definitely go watch it again. What I liked the most was the change of scenery as the characters embarked on their journey whereas in the previous movies it showed them running around on mountains and plains. So much action and great character progression!

Seriously... How can a movie that is so long have so little happen in it??? The ONLY good thing about this movie was the brilliant Martin Freeman. This movie was a total bore and I'm not interested in the remaining "chapters". Also - how many helicopter shots of people walking across New Zealand do we need?????? Zzzzzz
