Peter Jackson creates the same world that he already shown us in the LOTR, but that’s not the only thing he repeats.
He also repeats ripping Tolkiens book into a sucession of endless races and actions scenes with orcs falling everywhere and several “inventions” that mess the beautiful story created by the English author.
He also repeats those several minutes of platform game inside caves that we saw in Moria and in his version of King Kong.
If you loved the previous movies from Jackson, you will love this too.
If you are looking for some quality, you will only finding in the re-creation of the Middle Earth and the peformances of Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman and Cate Blanchett.
Of course off the level of its ‘The Lord of the Rings’ predecessors, but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’.
It has good lure to it, the plot is more than interesting, it features pleasant callbacks and – like LOTR – looks exquisite. As for the casting, I like ’em. Martin Freeman (Bilbo) is, like Elijah Wood, an actor I’ve always found hit-and-miss, but I really did enjoy Freeman’s performance here – the humour is his usual schtick, though the rest of his showing is strong.
Ian McKellen (Gandalf) returns and is as much a joy to watch as before. None of the others, though all good, stand out massively, James Nesbitt (Bofur) does bring decent comedic stuff.
Hopefully the two sequels to this are just as fantastic!
It keeps getting better every time I see it
I’ve seen “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” quite a few times now. I like it a lot. The first few times I watched it I found it hit and miss. The movie still takes a couple of dips here and there but those parts don’t bother me as much as they used to. Now the only demerit I give this movie has to do with its length. It’s a about twenty minutes too long. Otherwise, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is a very exciting and emotional ride. It’s also a great looking movie with very good music. This movie is always a welcome visit.
The Hobbit turns out to be a rather unexpected delight
Firstly, I have to make a statement- the LOTR movies, for me, have set an impossibly high bar both in this universe and within the movie world as a whole. Their cinematic beauty and value cannot be denied.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, however, is an entirely different movie. Sure, it’s set in the world of Middle Earth, but that’s really about all it holds in common with the aforementioned trilogy, alongside a few familiar faces. Many members of the audience I was in complained that the movie took a long time to get going, but it actually was paced rather well, with a suitably sized introduction with Ian Holm and Elijah Wood making way for the current storyline. The first thing you notice as a viewer is that this movie is notably funnier. Whilst the LOTR trilogy had it’s lighter moments, The Hobbit revels in the lighter side of life, with lots of genuinely hilarious moments interspersing themselves with scenes of real peril.The visually stunning moments are still there, and whilst I saw this movie in 2D, some moments would have been absolutely perfect in 3D. At first, it’s a little difficult to get into, especially when the light-hearted opening with the countless visiting dwarfs gets underway. However, if you can remind yourself as a viewer that The Hobbit was a book written for a much younger, impressionable audience, then you’ll likely have a good time watching this. That said, it is far from childish, and although it is a lighter, more fun affair, there are still many parts within the story that an adult audience can relate to.
Martin Freeman has been a firm favourite of mine since his humble beginnings on British terrestrial television, and seeing him here on the big screen is both a welcome and bizarre experience. That said, his demeanour and technique are perfect for the role of Bilbo Baggins, as he exudes the homely, simple manner of a Hobbit very effectively. Ian McKellen is perfect as everyone’s favourite wizard, and Richard Armitage (another former British television star playing his trade to the silver screen)is a brilliant Thorin (son of Thrain!), mixing a toughened heart with a tortured soul. If anything, Thorin may turn out to be the true hero of the piece. The rest of the dwarfs are also brilliant, and many of them are the highlights of the movie.
The special effects are once again spectacular, with the eye wateringly stunning rock giant battle a particularly memorable moment. The makeup effects are up to the job, too, and the attention to detail is ridiculous, right down to the individual scratches and weathered look of the weapons the characters wield. If you enjoyed the LOTR trilogy, then Peter Jackson will have you in awe again, although The Hobbit trilogy looks set to be a much more relaxed and ‘fun’ adventure. At the end of the day, the only complain to be made about the movie is that it simply isn’t LOTR. Those movies set such a high level that even Peter Jackson himself can’t seem to top them with this effort, but that’s a minor complain for what is otherwise I very well made movie.
Cinematic, adventurous, enjoyable and epic- The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey knows its audience and caters to them very well indeed.
