Just keep your expectations in check

Very tough to live up to the expectations created by LOTR, especially since The Hobbit was basically a kids book about a jewelry heist. The movie has been padded out and given a bit more depth, and I found it quite enjoyable. It's slow at the beginning, but then so was Fellowship of the Ring. The cameos by LOTR characters and other added scenes worked for me as I never expected the movie to adhere strictly to text of the book. I have to mention a couple of scenes involving sled-bunnies (!). They are appalling if Peter Jackson meant them to be taken seriously, or hilariously brilliant if intended to be comedic, and I'm going with the latter. Finally, a big thumbs up for the performance of Martin Freeman. He nails the difficult role of Bilbo Baggins (homebody to adventurer to hero) and gives the movie a tremendous boost in every scene he is in.

Acting is good, cinematography good, effects good but the story and dialogue are mediocre at best. Nowhere near the quality of Lord of the Rings. I was definitely disappointed and bored. They were trying too hard and should have made one Great movie instead of 3 movies to make money. All action and no quality.

To derivative of LOTR

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.

The previews and trailers didn't give this movie justice. The storytelling was great, even though they mixed around what happened in the book a bit, it was still an amazing movie, a must see. What are you doing sitting at your computer right now anyways? You should be going to the theatre right now.... What are you doing?! GO!

This movie was definitely a good one - the acting, script, costumes, sets, digital art, and make-up were all superb. The few changes they made to the original plot were interesting, added to the drama, and kept me interested for the entire 3 hours! I will definitely see it again before it leaves theaters.
