"The Hobbit" is different than "The Lord of the Rings" , but Tolkien fans will be pleased with that.

It gives you the feeling you are in the same places, with some of the same characters-but in a total different period of time - which is the point.

Peter Jackson managed to seperate the epic LOTR story and the "adventure-story" the Hobbit by mixing funny and lighthearted scenes with action and fighting scenes.

Martin Freeman is deffinately a very good choice to play young Bilbo Baggins, and Richard Armitage makes an outstanding performance as Thorin Oakenshield.
Also, Peter (and the actors) managed to give each of the 13 dwarves a very unique touch, so even with the (sometimes very similar) confusing names, its kinda easy to tell who is who after a few minutes of watching.

I am absolutely going to watch "The Hobbit - an unexpected journey" in 2D again.
