The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Reviews
Though long and unstructured, Peter Jackson returns to craftily deliver all the high-fantasy sword-and-sorcery thrills Tolkien fans crave, with fine cinematography, performances, and special effects wizardry.
I'll give it
Revisting this film you can help but feel Jackson attempted too much with the material. The series was based on the smaller of the books and was blown up to three films from one book, a recipe for strung out storytelling. The film is still a marvel to look at and it is a shame Hollywood doesn't spend further time in middle earth. I liked the film and while it isn't the quality of Lord of the Rings, it is still a great fantasy film. 09/12/2018.
