Great movie, Bad in 3-D

Wonderful prequel to the LOTR trilogy. The 3-D, however, was poorly done and distracted from the cinematics. I found myself looking back and forth between at the characters in the foreground in 3-D and the panoramic vistas in the background in obvious 2-D. I recommend they avoid this in the next two films. I woulld recommend the 2-D version for those who have not seen it yet.

A must-see for fans of the LOTR Movies - 2:45 goes by too quickly

While I am not a big fan of the current trend of splitting novels into 2 (or more) movies, I think Peter Jackson pulled it off with The Hobbit part one. Even at a healthy 2:45, the movie did not drag and the plot did advance at a reasonable pace. The film (in Imax and 3-D) is visually stunning and seeing familar characters and locales again was wonderful. I beleive that the version I viewed included the 48 fps that critics have commented on extensively - if so, I did not see anything to complain about. The 3-D was seamless (no gimmicks) and Peter Jackson and his crew have created one of the most immersive film experiences to date.

Hobbilt- 4 & 1/2 out of 5 stars

Other than being a bit too heavy on battle scenes, this is a terrific adaptation of The Hobbit which expands the story in interesting ways. The eagle rescue makes the 3-D definitely worth the extra $ one pays for this. Excellent casting.

Exciting Movie

I really enjoyed the Hobbit. I saw it in IMAX. Even though there was not alot of 3D pieces that seemed exciting to me. It was still great. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It was funny and exciting. It started slightly slow but it was very entertaining. You should go see it.
