okay, let me get this straight: It's not the best movie ever. It's no LotR 2. But: When the Movie starts and you just watch the first scene, you are IN the movie. Totally! Storytelling, smart pacing and a genius Ian McKellen. Also Martin Freeman as Bilbo is just lovley. I watched the movie as a normal movie. no 480p and no 3d and i missed nothin. Great Actors, great movie. 9/10

As someone who doesn't care for the franchise, but loves film dearly, this was enjoyable for its technical aspects, but utterly boring and bland as far as content goes. It looked absolutely stunning, it was cast well and it had great sound design - but the tacky bombast, weak plot(based on a weak children's novel - not 9 hour film trilogy material) and questionable direction ultimately bring it down.

Don't like it, saw the 24fps 2D version, it have almost nothing in common with the book and the CG are a bit poor in some landscapes (at least at the begining), the movie entertains for sure but I expected more. I'll wait for the blurays to see the other 2.

As a HUGE fan of Lord of The Rings I have some mixed feelings about this movie and this Trilogy in general.
The movie has its positive points (many of them), the best part of this Trilogy is without a doubt Martin Freeman, his acting is flawless and he owns the character of Bilbo, his comedic tim More

Pros:

* Landscape imagery
* Camera, FX and CGI (for the most part)
* Costumes and stage design, camera
* Martin Freeman and most other actors perform solidly
* The background information is perhaps interesting to some of the LoR fans out there.

Negative:

* Runtime (way too long)
* Musi More

Of course off the level of its 'The Lord of the Rings' predecessors, but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'.

It has good lure to it, the plot is more than interesting, it features pleasant callbacks and - like LOTR - looks exquisite. As for th More

There is no doubt that Peter Jackson does a great job bring Tolkien’s fantasies to life, much better, I imagine, than anyone must have assumed when they heard about the Lord of the Rings series way back when.

I must confess that I don’t like them as much as I enjoyed reading the books. I am s More
