Just.the.worst. Shamelessly takes the winning formula of the LOTR movies and turns it to crap.

I loved this show. I also love the Lord Of The Rings too. A little too violent for kids. A good Science Fiction if you enjoy creative fantasy stories.

I believe that this work was fantastic the whole process was thought through nicely. The cast was very fitting for the story. I personally think that the CGI effcts were mind blowing. I guess you could say it was out of this world. ;) it was odd how they split the book into three to make the movies when it could have been one. Either way I'd still pay to go see it. Somethings may not make sense, but hating on the movie isn't going to magically change it. Once again I want to point out how much I love this movie.

Part 1 of just another narcissistic,and arrogant WHITE SUPREMACIST fantasy trilogy that is also DEEPLY SLEEP INDUCING.I was in a deep sleep for at least an hour or more of this CGI NONSENSE,talking about protecting a certain precious medal that North AmeriKKKans in real life allowed their WHITE SUPREMACIST Government to steal from them in the 1930's because of a law they came out with that made it illegal to own,BUT I DIGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

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...)
