New The Hobbit,An Unexpected Journey Movie Delivered Major Action,Drama & More
New The Hobbit,An Unexpected Journey movie delivered major action,drama & more. New Line Cinema released their new action/fantasy flick “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and thought it was really great towards the end,but I was super bored for about the first hour and half as it was pretty slow-moving. It stars: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Evangeline Lilly, Andy Serkis, Richard Armitage, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, and Luke Evans.
In the new flick, it is revealed that the Dwarves were driven out of there home of Erebor by the great dragon Smaug. Eventually,character Bilbo Baggins is tricked by the great wizard “Gandalf the Grey” into joining the Dwarves on a mission to reclaim their treasure back from Smaug.
From there, they go on a wild adventure,and are eventually captured by evil,nasty-looking goblins. However, they get rescued by Gandalf when he returns after getting separated from the group. Meanwhile,Bilbo was able to slip away and inadvertently meet that crazy deformed hobbit Gollum,which I must say,was probably the best scene in the movie as Gollum is just so weird that it’s interesting as hell to watch him.
Anyways, after that little encounter, Bilbo was able to get away from Gollum and rejoin the rest of the Dwarves,via stealing Gollum’s magical ring that made him invisible. From there, Bilbo proved to be a worthy member of the pack after saving Thorin from getting his head sliced off when they get attacked by evil Azog and his huge pack of dangerous wolves.
After all that, it concludes with the Dwarves escaping Azog’s attack,via a bunch of huge Eagles that Gandalf called for. The ending closed out with a visual of the Lonely Mountain and the evil dragon Smaug, awakening from his slumber covered in all the Dwarves’ gold,which of course, set up for the sequel,which will be titled, “The Desolation of Smaug.”
Again,I thought the film was highly enjoyable once they got past the super boring first hour. It was almost three hours in running time. Then things really picked up when they got attacked by the nasty Goblins ,and the meeting between Bilbo and Gollum was a priceless moment in the flick. The action was wicked intense towards the end,and just totally awakened me from any boredom I had during the first half of the movie. So, I gave it a solid B- grade. Stay tuned.
