This movie is great for teens and adults but might be too scary for kids. The movie is fun to watch you are entertained all the way until the end. It has lots of action, big adventure, filmed in new zealand so great camera shots, I highly recommend it!
This is a fantastic introduction to Peter Jackson's new trilogy. It did seem too slow in parts, like they tried to extend the storyline to fit in three long movies. Which is what they are doing, and it is noticeable, but it does not take away from the overall grandeur of the film. One note of caution: it does seem more violent than the original trilogy, so its a good idea to watch before the kids do. Overall, I loved it because I'm a die hard geek.
