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!

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.

Wish it had been HFR

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.

One tough Hobbit

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.

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.
