If you hadn't read the hobbit, Stop right here. This was the best prequel ever made. Beautiful. Heartwarming. Heartbreaking. Makes you want to see the next part. I can't wait!!! Stayed true!!!!! Incredible effects!!! Who the f#$% said the graphics looked like video game graphics. I'm flipping you off. Most incredible prequel EVER. Must see. Remember, the Hobbit is a childrens' book. Treat and rank it as such. Mindblowing!!!!!!!
