After the LOTR trilogy this movie was a serious failure. I went to it with great expectations, but the only thing good about it was the high quality graphics employed. The story was worse than lame. The first hour of the movie is complete garbage. For the first time I fell asleep in a movie. I am extremely dissatisfied. This is nothing but a fairy tale for children.

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.

The movie itself was amazing. Just wish the Regal Cinema here had been showing it's IMAX version in HFR. The normal screens are too small to justify paying for, and those paying top dollar for IMAX are the most likely to want the new technology.

This is a great movie, right along the lines of the lord of the rings before it. The 3D action is great. Just got to remember this is one movie of three so it does not really end!

For those of you that have actually read the book, you will notice a lot of changes. For example, they totally skipped important parts in the book. In addition, there was not enough reliability on the ring in the movie. Finally, in three hours you would expect them to tell the whole story, but they only get to half of the story. Although there are these changes, I would still recomend that you go see it. I mean, if you saw the original you know this one has to be better.
