I like that it had the beginning with Frodo in it so you could relate it to the Lord of the Rings and it's nice to see Gandalf back and Saruman before he turns evil. But it was a tiny bit too long." Photo: Karleen Minney Harry Pratt, Newcastle "I thought it was fun and exciting. There were some slow parts with lots of scenes, but once it got going it was really good." Photo: Karleen Minney Jack Phemister, Yass "It was really good. We've been really excited to see it. I've read The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. I was expecting them to cut out some of the scenes from the book and they didn't which was really good." Photo: Karleen Minney Jett Rose, Yarralumla "It was awesome. I liked the action bits." Photo: Karleen Minney Kirstyanne Hayes, Mawson "I thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought it was really good and I'd definitely see it again. I loved the way it was set out." Photo: Karleen Minney Wayne Stuart, Yass "I don't think it was different enough to the Lord of the Rings to really satisfy. It needed to have points of difference and they weren't there. I felt like it was more of the same. The concept was great, the countryside, the way they used the features of New Zealand really worked. But they are making three films out of this one book and I think it's one of those commercial things."
