The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Reviews
Now, I thought that generally the acting in the film was a little bit lacking, and to be honest I was hoping for a little better performance by Martin Freeman as my expectations for him were very high. However, Jackson does well by playing to his strengths and showcasing many of the same elements that made The Lord Of The Rings trilogy so great. Great visuals and an excellent portrayal of Tolkien's Middle Earth.
One of the biggest problems with the movie was the overall pace and unbalanced telling of the story. While in first 45 minutes had an excellent slowish pace, the next two hours of film had an insane amount of story progression which really lost much of its weight and meaningfulness as it all became rather jumbled and hard to follow.
Hehe...easy for me to say, since I've never actually seen any of the Lotr movies, nor any of the hobbits movies (Other than this one).
Either way, I'm pretty excited to watch the next sequel, because I honestly don't know what's gonna happen next. :)
