This christmas I went to watch the Hobbit which was surprisingly 3 hours long!The screen brightened the pitch black room. I really was astonished because its the first time my Dads stayed awake for the hole film. In my opinion I think the film is better than the book because the film helped you understand the storyline. I’m still reading the book though and I might change my mind. One of my best films. Age rate:Its got some gory bits so about 7+.
