This film sets up the trilogy of Lord of the Rings. It’s a small book compared to the Lord of the Rings and that the down fall to the Hobbit, how can you take a book that’s not even a fourth of one of the Lord of the Rings books to three movies. Peter Jackson took the Lord of the Rings books into a film and now he takes the smallest and makes it into three. That’s my pet peeve about the movie and it’s a small pet peeve because unlike most watchers of the films, I haven’t read the book. Taking that into an account, I loved it. Jackson does an awesome job with the cinematography, the acting and the pace. I didn’t feel that it was long and over drawn. So, here’s to two more of the hobbit and the millions of money Jackson will make because of it.
