I love the book The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien and I have since 1093, when I read it for the first of about five times. Now, if possible, I love it even more. Martin Freeman was the perfect choice to play Bilbo. The characters are perfectly realized, the scenery is stunning and the action is fantastic, so much so that I could not believe how quickly the film was over because I could barely look away for long enough to check-in on my phone and tell everyone how much I was enjoying it!
I was little surprised at first when it ended two-thirds of the way through the story, but now I am excited that I get to go back and see the end next year!

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.

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....

The LOTR films were to right, correct tone and feel.
The Hobbit should have been much lighter in feel.
It felt like the Hobbit is just a continuation of LOTR, to the point that it felt like they used the same shots for the film.
To long and to dark for what it should have been.

Action packed and was overall more humor-driven then LOTRs. Some very gruesome creatures throughout. If you are a LOTR fan, then this is, of course, a must see.
