Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever ... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities ...

My dear Frodo, you asked me once if I had told you everything there was to know about my adventures. And while I can honestly say I've told you the truth, I may not have told you all of it. I am old, Frodo. I am not the same hobbit as I once was. It is time for you to know what really happened.

On the whole it wouldn't be bad, but the original story is vanishing in the flood of fight scenes. And it's way too much. Of course I understand that they want to make three time as much money with 3 movies instead of a really good and pure one. In the original story, fight is not emphasized at all, only a few page from the novel. On the other hand I like the cast and the their acting. No problem with that. I hate this, and this is why I gave 1 out of 10. AND I won't watch the other two parts, no way! It is very sad, because I like this story very much, but simply I just can't watch other 6 hours of massive fight in a movie which not supposed to be an action movie!
