Extraordinary! I usually dread long movies...but The Hobbit (I saw it in Imax 3D) was so mesmerizing that I couldn't believe the 2 hours and 45 min had passed so quickly. I'm actually considering seeing it again in the theater and I NEVER go see a movie twice.

The Hobbit is just good enough to make you aware of how it could have been much, much better. If you take your kids-while shielding them from various nonhuman bad guys getting decapitated both repeatedly and, worse, bloodlessly-they'll have a good time. Bilbo Baggins' quest for adventure and Warner Bros' quest for cash will take him through three films. But your quest for epic, truly entertaining filmmaking will be more successful if you just stay home. Full Review

Tolkien's inventive, episodic tale of a modest homebody on a dangerous journey has been turned into an overscale and plodding spectacle. Full Review
It's a bloated, shockingly tedious trudge that manages to look both overproduced and unforgivably cheesy. Full Review
While the production design is impeccable and the journey intermittently involving, The Hobbit is overlong and lacks the enchantment of the Lord of the Rings films. Full Review
The Hobbit plays younger and lighter than Fellowship and its follow-ups, but does right by the faithful and has a strength in Martin Freeman's Bilbo that may yet see this trilogy measure up to the last one. There is treasure here. Full Review
