Fantastic! I just loved this movie about the history behind Bilbo's fortune, and how he began his adventures. The dwarves are hilarious, Richard Armitage makes for a handsome, brooding Thorn Oakenshield and Martin Freeman is perfect as Bilbo. The riddle scene with Bilbo and Gollum is screamingly funny! The movie is long but for me it just flew past. I could have sat for another 3 hours. I can't wait for the next installment.
