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.

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.

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.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

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.
