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.

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.

Having read the book I must say that even though they add new twists and storylines (the pale orc and the necromancer) those stories came from Tolkien's Unfinished works so they weren't that far off from what Tolkien had in mind. Despite it not being like THE HOBBIT book, it was AMAZING! Definitely worth watching it in theaters and definitely would love to see it again. I don't think its fair to compare it to LOTR since this was written first and meant for children, after all it is TWO different stories. I think they did a great job incorporating new storylines to fit adults. Great job!

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.

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.
