When shown on television, with commercial breaks throughout, it is often unclear which version they are showing, due to the many variables of how often advertising breaks are taken, and how long each break is, which may easily extend the film length in the schedule to the equivalent apx length of the extended version. Many broadcasters in fact do not always mention if they are showing the original theatrical, or extended versions of The Hobbit trilogy, or indeed the Lord of the Rings trilogy. See more »

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.

A very good start to the series. Very sensitive for the rest of the process, even though the movie was slow for the first half hour, it didn't affect my experience that much. The story is fun and interesting. Most of the film's protagonists were fun and watching Gandalf bring back memories of The Lord of the Rings. Filming and directing dazzles you and makes you wish to live in the world of cinema, especially in the Elf area. Although the film is not at the level of The Lord of the Rings, it is still excellent.
