Let's get this out of the way: the movie is not a perfect 1:1 retelling of the book. There are changes. This is inevitable, and every change is for the better (except maybe cramming Galadriel in there). The pacing is slow enough to let you absorb everything and feel the weight of the journey without it being plodding and unwatchable, antics of the Company are entertaining as anything, and the FEEL of everything is just... Delicious. I cannot wait until the next one.

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.

To all those who say that Peter Jackson should shorten the movies, I point out all the dreck that has been produced in the past and has absolutely taken the soul out of the movie (Da Vinci Code anyone ...). The movie is magnificent, the backgrounds are superb and the action is exactly what you expect. If you have see The Lord of The Rings Trilogy but did not read the books, then this explains much of the background ... if, like me, you read all the books a long time ago then the movies paint and reinforce the images in your mind ... Love the movie and cannot wait for the next part ...

This was my second time seeing the Hobbit:AUJ. First time I saw it was in 3-D awesome, this past time I saw it was regular, and I will see it again. I have seen all the Hobbit movies and I am there biggest fan!

An AMAZING movie! However, it was the first movie I had seen in over a year and had forgotten the etiquette of not talking during the movie... So to everyone at Sandhills Cinema 16 aud 7, the 9:30 showing 12/15/12, I'm horribly sorry for ruining it for you....
