Worth the 20 bucks I spent o IMAX to see it at midnight per ticket. 3 movies? Did it have to be 3 movies for one book?

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!

Great movie with a cliff hanger insisting on seeing #2 and then #3 I'm certain. Interesting that the crowd at the movie was well over 30 something. Young Bilbo was a hit.

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.
