Two Line Reviews - #446

Movie: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

Plot: Baggins-the Hobbit, to his own surprise, is pulled into an expedition by dwarves who seek to get back a home from a mountain rumoured to house a deadly dragon! The Hobbit doesn't know where and how his service will be of in this unexpected journey of his.

What Works?
  • Peter Jackson is back - This time trying to revisit a Hobbit from the past and in trying to recreate the LoTR Magic, he succeeds partially!
  • The characters, as always, are funny, likeable and adventurously notorious and Gandalf is as majestic as ever!
  • The New Zealand locations once again come to the fore and the Graphics and music are decorative to the marvel you get to see on screen!
  • The episode of Golem and the connection with LoTR was surprising and was a connection I liked.
What Doesn't?
Comparisons with LoTR series are bound to happen and in that way, the film is a lot less impactful: Understandably, as the missions are contrasting in nature and this one is part of one single book and not three!

A pleasant journey indeed!
