I went to see this tonight and enjoyed it, despite my expectation that I might be let down.

I read the Hobbit before Lord of the Rings when I was younger, and it's pretty much as I imagined bar the obvious added material designed to flesh it out a bit, which is fair enough really.

It does have the much lighter spirit of the book which is good, although I know this appears to have upset fans of the cinematic LOTR who've not read either of the books and so don't really understand the differences. The Hobbit was never going to have the dark edges that LOTR had, and it doesn't suffer for it at all.
