There are a few things you will not get in the movie. I suggest you do as I did and find a fellow dorky friend to accompany you to the movie and explain certain things as they come along. But, on the whole, if you have a decent understanding of fantasy novels, you will get the movie. It's absolutely worth seeing whether you read the books or not.

One thing that is a good point that has been brought up on this forum is the ending...
If I didn't know what was happening next, I guess I'd think the ending was very anti-climactic. Indeed, the breaking of the Fellowship at Rauros is one of the slower parts of the book. Amazing, because the action kicks right in in the first pages of Two Towers.
