Ok, first of all I'm from México, so please, excuse any mistakes in my english.
Ever since I read the Hobbit when I was 15 in 1990 I have been longing for an adaptation into a movie. So imagine my excitement when I finally saw this very anticipated movie. I read some reviews by some critics that I don't know what they were thinking, but it was nonesense, they complained about the length but it was a great thing for me as a Tolkien purist and freak, because it alowed a lot more detail about the story. Some said that Radagast was another Jar Jar Binks character, but it was not like that at all, he was a very likable character. I was excited to see Gandalf and Galadriel again, but the great revelation was Martin Freeman, a great and believable performance as Bilbo, his gradual transformation from a homey to an adventurer hobbit is very convincing. No wonder why Peter Jackson insisted he play Bilbo.
Everything was artistically and beautifuly crafted and the special effects and CGI images were not used excessively and they made a very believable world.
I loved the scene of the riddles. Played masterfully by Andy Serkis and Martin Freeman. I wanted to have at least a brief look at Smaug, but I guess they are reserving that for the 2nd film, I hope.
I would definitely go watch it again and again. A wonderful and epic production.
