Good, but bad

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.

Worth waiting over 40 years for this movie! J.R.R. Tolkien would surely approve!

I first read The Hobbit in 1967 or 1968 and hoped that some day it would be made into a movie worthy of the masterpiece that J.R.R. Tolkien created. The movie was certainly beyond worthy. Martin Freeman is absolutely brilliant as Bilbo, and each and every cast member is fabulous. I rarely see a movie twice, but have seen this one twice already and hope to go again before it leaves the Imax.

IMAX-3D is always great. The Hobbit is visually beautiful, often funny with many thrilling and exciting sences. If you liked The Lord of the Rings series you will ike The Hobbit. All the actors from the LOTR have returned to the Hobbit making it easy to know the characters. Fun and engaging from beginning to end witj an ending leaving you wanting to see part 2. Don't miss it at the IMAX its a spectical worthy of the format.

visual spectacle with story intact but broadened in scope

Jackson does a great job overall of telling the core story with all the major beats from the book and a few adjustments for film structure/format. He puts the Hobbit into a broader Middle Earth context and weaves it into the LOTR films. Most significantly, Jackson has a knack for expanding the scale of scenes in his translation from the books to cinema. Overall, a very entertaining first entry in the trilogy.

Everything I Expected & More!

Peter Jackson & Co. didn't disappoint! It was awesome! Cinematography was excellent. The New Zealand landscapes were shot as well as they were in The lord of the Rings. Defiantly go see it in the theater, don't wait for DVD. It's ok to take the kids, not too violent.
