The Hobbit is a prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I have always been a fan of the first three films so I was skeptical from the moment I entered the cinema to watch Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. My doubts were cast out the window as I was introduced to the various characters of the film. Though the movie dragged on a bit at the early moments, the middle and late sequences will leave you gasping for breath because of frantic chases and creative action scenes. I found The Hobbit even more compelling than LOTR 1. For those who want to have a great movie experience, watch The Hobbit. It's one of the best films of the year.
