Took my 2 sons to see it opening day and it was truly awesome. The boys liked the tie in with the other movies even though it made the movie a bit off the book. You'll enjoy it.

Definitely worth doing in 3D IMAX

I've been unimpressed with 3D in the past, but this was GREAT! The technology has gotten so much better, and was used very effectively in The Hobbit! Good for ages 10 (mature) and up.

The Hobbit - Better than expected

Written September 02, 2014
I had read reviews saying the movie was too long with a lot of unimportant stuff added to draw it out to 3 films. Being a big fan of Tolkien's books, I could't understand how a quick read like the hobbit could be drawn out to the length of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I was pleasantly surprised to find a lot of the story not in the book interpreted for the movie, like the actual attack on the dwarf mountain by Smaug, and involvement of the wizard Radagast with Gandalf on the rising of the Necromancer. It's been many years since I read the Hobbit, but now I need to go back and read it again to get a handle on what was there and what is being added to this new story. Looking forward to Part II.

The Hobbit was everything I was expecting from Peter Jackson and I was not disappointed. The acting was excellent and the cinematography brilliant as ever. Like the other reviewers I wasn't sure about breaking The Hobbit into multiple installments, but it worked and I can't wait for the next one. My son is also a huge fan, and having watched the LOTR trilogy prior to seeing this movie, he kept asking when they'd find the ring and see Gollum...he was not disappointed either (and now wants LOTR Legos!).

I loved this movie. Great set up for this new trilogy. Wonderful narrative and introduction to the new characters and it is great to see Gandalf back. Seeing Gollum again is a special treat as well. Despite it's long run time, the pace moved along at a good pace. Highly recommended.
