If it Ain't Broke,,,,,

If you liked the changes and additions from the first two parts of this trilogy you'll like it. Cinematically it was great, but the constant deviations from the book leave me feeling deceived and the money-grab of making it 3 movies cheapens the overall experience. This serves as a great example of something being fixed that was not broken.

This movie was beginning to end action with no story. It was worse than the first movie.

An Excellent Send off to the Tolkien Franchise

The film is strong for the most part. Well rendered graphics and fast paced film and action sequences. Strong character scenes between Bilbo and Thorin as well as Bard, Thranduil and other characters. The movie is entertaining, fun and reaches it's end in a bittersweet farewell to MIddle Earth. Outstanding performances by Freeman and Armitage. The best of the Hobbit series. Some actions scenes are a bit overdone but this is a fantasy film. Differs from the book a bit in how some of the scenes play out but it is absolutely faithful to the story in the key elements and Tolkien reader fans should love it. Peter Jackson walks into history with his head held high.

Superb!!! Can't wait to watch it again. I love the way Peter Jackson ties everything together. I'm just a huge fan and every one of these movies meets every expectation of awesomeness.

I saw the marathon on monday and it was a spectacular movie- esp in imax 3d, just amazing. It was well done and amazing effects and everything else. I love the hobbit series of course, but was a little upset about the way thorin died- i kind of wish they would have made a bigger deal abt it. It was true to the book but the thorin in the book isnt the same in the movie, so I wish they would have edited that a bit. I didnt read the books and didnt know he would die, so i was upset..I love the series but really, the hobbit should have ended with thorin's reign, and then moved onto the other books. Tolkien just didnt do the best job of writing the story there..and heck should have been changed, dont care what the book fans say. The movies are life like and realistic and u become emotionally involved with them. it was a heart wrenching ending to the series and disappointing. I dont know if i can endure the first few knowing thorin never got to be king. other than that it was really good.
