This is a wonderful build-up for the remaining two movies in the Hobbit trilogy! It was great to see some of my favorite characters from the Two Towers: Gandalf, Frodo, Galadriel, Eldron and, of course, Golum and the elder Bilbo Baggins! We also get to meet the gang of (13) dwarves -- beautifully cast, I might add!
But the graphics -- what a blast! At no other time in my life am I going to get to fly on the back of an eagle! (Or, luckily, get shot with an arrow!) Character development was awesome. I haven't read The Hobbit in over 30 years so I barely remember the story but my nephew told me a few things that were special to the movie. I asked him if that bothered him and he said "Not really" that it was just more story and good for the movie!
The only thing that kind of surprised me was - the singing. Once I got over the shock, it was actually pretty funny and FUN!
This is a "Must Go" movie but I can only vouch for the HFR/3-D version.
