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.

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 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!

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!
