Long awaited, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY (2012) starring Ian McKellan and Martin Freeman, has finally hit the big screen. A prequel to the massively successful Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY has thankfully included a few of our favorite characters, along with a new cast of likeable dwarfs.

Unfortunately, if you haven't seen any of the original three movies, much of this new quest will be a mystery to you. With many of the scenes taking place underground, I found the movie to be literally quite dark, sometimes wishing that the characters would just grab a torch and light up their own surroundings. Excellent CG work though, as a large percentage of the storyline revolves around mystical beings. Gollum once again steals the show with his mix of humor and hopelessness.

Highly recommended for Tolkien fans, the next installation titled The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, is set to be released on Dec/13/2013.

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY was nominated for an Oscar in 3 minor categories in 2013. Adventure/Fantasy, 169 mins, PG-13 **** 4 starsĀ out of 5
