‘The Hobbit’ Reviews: Early Twitter Reactions From the World Premiere

Last night saw the big world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ in New Zealand. Normally most premieres are in Los Angeles but because ‘The Hobbit’ was shot in New Zealand (and director Peter Jackson was finishing the film in the days leading up to the premiere), the premiere was in Wellington. So what did the crowd think?

The film’s stars – including Martin Freeman, Evangeline Lilly, Sir Ian McKellan, Hugo Weaving and more – were all in attendance, along with Jackson to introduce the film. The audience was made up not of critics but of fans of the film and some notable directors like Bryan Singer (‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘) and James Cameron.

But what we really want to know is what people thought of the movie. And while none of these people below are actual film critics, the universal word seems to be that ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ is quite good. Take a look at a sampling of tweets below from those at the ‘Hobbit’ premiere last night.
