Writer: Fran Walsh
Guillermo del Toro
Starring: Martin Freeman
Release Date: Out Now
It has been a long and strenuous journey getting The Hobbit franchise up and running; change of directors, years of delays, and an ever changing cast, but after the hard work, stressful meetings and tiring hours, it has finally been made. Kicking off with An Unexpected Journey, it truly is a magical way to start Bilbo's adventure.
|Cate Blanchett & Ian McKellen|
The Hobbit is about as close as you can get to pure perfection in a fantasy film; it's only downfall is it's length, there were times where a few scenes dragged, and could've maybe been cut down a bit; but overall it was brilliant. The energy and the joy of the cast is apparent from the get go, each dwarf is full of beans, returning cast; McKellen, Blanchett, Weaving, Lee, Wood & Holm, almost glow like little children at the fact they are all back together, and as a fan of the Lord of the Rings series, this was a joy to witness. Of course Andy Serkis revives the character Gollum, and as ever his performance is electrifying; I really could go on forever about the joy I got out of this epic adventure, but I won't; and I will simply end with saying that this must not be missed.
