Having read the book a few times I was a bit apprehensive at the prospect of watching The Hobbit, I had been waiting for over 2 years to watch this and I didn't want to go in there and find it wasn't up to scratch. However, all my worries and fears were obliterated as the opening scene began and film unfolded in front of me. I was blown away, everything in the movie from the actors to the technical side was brilliant. The Score was what brought me to tears as Howard Shore was able to make the music feel that we were back in Middle Earth but changed it slightly to show that we are at a different time and interacting with different the races! I felt that Peter J and the fantastic team in New Zealand had done all Tolkien fans proud! I would recommend this movie to anyone and I would gladly go and pay to see it again. I can't wait for the other two! :D Two thumbs up!
