If you read the critics' reviews, they lament the fact that the pace of the movie is slow, and that almost nothing noteworthy happens in the first installment of The Hobbit...
Apparently the first Hobbit film covers only the first 130 pages of the book anyway.
I guess that is how you inflate 1 book into a 3 movies.
You stretch everything out as far as you can, lengthwise...
