Really disappointing. A distortion of the original novel, probably to make use of the special effects used in the trilogy. Too much of everything except the wonderful tale by Tolkien.

Great job by Peter Jackson. Remains true to the story thanks to CGI. Technology has matured to a point where a fantasy series such as this can be accurately reproduced. Great entertainment.

Truly amazing. A little intense, but very breathtaking. I can't wait to watch The Desolation of Smaug!

This Movie was amazing in my words, and by the way, The Hobbit, was worth 3 books, And its not possible to fit that book into a movie, that is if you dont want to watch a 6 hour movie

Just saw it for a second time. Intense CGI, wonderful New Zealand, and the 'Great Heroic Epic' ! Yes, the book is different,.. but so what. I love this genre, and this latest installment is well done and feeds my need. (Having to wait for the next 'installment'... ouch !)

Peter Jackson tried to take a children's book and turn it into some great epic like the Lord of the Rings--which didn't quite work. I still found it enjoyable, though. Can't wait to see the next part!! :) :) :)

I loved this show. I also love the Lord Of The Rings too. Alittle violent for kids. A good Sci-fi

Intense CGI, wonderful New Zealand, and the 'Great Heroic Epic' ! So the dragon is awesome, but the dragon voice is too mild. Yes, the book is different,.. but so what. I love this genre and this lastest installment is well done and feeds my need. (Having to wait for the next 'installment',.. ouch !!??)

I will say that I liked this one better than The Desolation of Smaug, but still, it was different than the book. I tend to be a book person, though, so it might just be my opinion! It wan't horrible though.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Not as bad as the LOTR, surprisingly, but the orcs are still kind of scary for younger children. Keep in mind it is rated PG-13!

Gollum (crawling away from Bilbo, who's pointing Sting at him): "It's got an elfish blade, but it's not an elfs... Not an elfs, no... What is it, precious?!? WHAT IS IT?!?" Bilbo Baggins: "My name... is Bilbo Baggins." Gollum: "...Bagginses? ...What is a 'Bagginses', precious?"

Gandalf (gazing upon the horizon): "Erebor... The Lonely Mountain... the last of the great dwarf kingdoms of Middle Earth..." Thorin Oakenshield: "...Our home..." Balin: "A raven! The birds are returning to the mountain!" Gandalf: "That, my dear boy, is a thrush!" Thorin Oakenshield: "Well, we'll take it as a sign. A good omen." Bilbo Baggins: "You're right. I do believe the worst is behind us." (Camera follows the thrush to The Lonely Mountain, where it noisily pecks at a nut... stirring... Smaug...)

And a gooooood morning to You! (Now what do I mean????)

The pines were roaring on the height, The winds were moaning in the night. The fire was red, it flaming spread; The trees like torches blazed with light.
