Description

Academy Awardยฎ-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson returns to Middle-earth with the first of three films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's enduring masterpiece. Set in Middle-earth 60 years before the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy, the adventure follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of dwarves on a journey into wild, treacherous lands swarming with beasts of every ilk. Although their goal lies to the East, they must first escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever...Gollum. Alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo gains possession of Gollum's "precious" -- a simple, gold ring tied to the fate of all Middle-earth.

    Peter Jackson has NEVER made a bad movie. While I did like the lord of the rings, this one is my favorite trilogy of his.

    The stupid wizard with the bunny sleigh ruined the movie. Just absolutely horrible. If I could rate this in the negatives I would.

    ok so don't listen to the rest of the reviews because the are not correct. This movie was so good that it could be seen as even better than the book. Yes, it is longer and has added scenes but I believe that that helps the story make more sense and make it more exciting. This movie was extremely good and I recommend it.

    The Hobbit is in my opinion, better than the lord of the rings in many ways. I love the story and the characters. This movie is just beautiful, the stories are also just so we'll crafted and in this movie I felt like I did in the fellowship of the ring watching Gandalf lead the dwarves through perils and the Orc who hunts them is terrifying. If you love lord of the rings you are safe to buy these movies. So much time and energy went into making these films and it is evident in its high quality.
