what the others say
"Charming, spectacular, technically audacious - in short, everything you expect from a Peter Jackson movie."
"On balance, honor has been done to Tolkien, not least in the famous riddle game between Bilbo and Gollum."
"The Hobbit plays younger and lighter than Fellowship and its follow-ups, but does right by the faithful and has a strength in Martin Freeman's Bilbo."
