Trivia

This movie marks the third time Sting, Bilbo's silver sword, is featured in the theatrical poster alongside the title character, following The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013), thus making its appearance more than key characters of the trilogy, Gandalf The Grey and Thorin Oakenshield, who were only seen in the poster of the second installment. It is also seen used by Frodo on the poster for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), meaning it has appeared on four posters in the whole franchise. See more »

Goofs

When Bilbo explains in the King's tent why he has brought the Arkenstone, Gandalf's line of vision when looking at Bilbo is too high up to be on a level with a hobbit's. See more »

Quotes

[Bilbo starts off home, speaking only to Balin]
Bilbo Baggins: Could you tell the others I say goodbye?

[Bilbo sees that the Company has come to see him off]

Nice finish to an Over Extended Film
17 December 2014 | by MennoManSee all my reviews

It is without question The Hobbit did not need to be made into a three part film series... After all, given the book size of the Hobbit Compared to The Lord of the Rings... The Hobbit Should have been workable into one extended Movie or two at the most. If Jackson would have sun the story of The Lord of the Rings like he did the Hobbit, We would still be waiting for the last two movies in his twelve part series...

So with that off my chest..

This still is a TRUE CLASSIC FILM to be placed in the same titles as The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. The Cinematography was excellent. The special effects pretty much flawless and acting excellent. The Story was intriguing if not a bit over-told with characters and plots a bit beyond the book. However, even these over embellishings are happily accepted. In fact, now that the series is over, I wish Jackson would have made a longer Lord of the Rings. Is simply can not get enough.. It is over! Soon to be delegated to Blue Ray, then sweep to the DVD bin at WalMart along with the rest of our favorites. Enjoy the series now... It will be a long time before you see another classic like Tolkien on the Big Screen.
