After seeing reviews about the unnecessary length of the movie, I was pleasantly surprised by how watchable and engaging it was. I thought the different additions (except for those strange mountain creatures) helped build up the context of the movie. Of course, much of the additions were familiar to me from reading through the appendices of Tolkien's books. If you're a big Tolkien fan, you'll enjoy and understand the additions, otherwise, it might not make sense. David

As an avid book reader, the departure from the storyline in places and picking up the appendices to write the script seemed megalomaniacal, but it works. My biggest complaint was the nauseating 3D effects, which I will surely NOT be viewing in the future. Go, but see it in regular theaters.

IMAX 3D is well-worth the extra money. Amazing Hobbit movie experience: fantastic NZ vistas combined with storytelling at its finest and the raw energy of elvish combat. Treat yourself to a grown-up, visual hot fudge sundae and go see this movie.

As a keen fan of the Lords of the Ring trilogy, I was looking forward to The Hobbit. And it does not disappoint. The scale and building up of the characters, where some are familiar and others new from LOTRs is in a similar style or what is the start of an epic journey, Only point to mention is that for young kids, it may be a slow moving and at well over two hours is not exactly a short movie!

Movie started like the book slow. Then you couldn't stop looking at the screen until the movie ended. Just like the book, you couldn't put the book down until it was finished reading. Can't wait until part 2 of the movie. I probably go see it again.
