Movie Review | The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Years ago, the movie-adaptation of the famous Lord of the Rings Trilogy shook the world. Now, the prequel to the series, The Hobbit, gets a thrilling trilogy of its own. An Unexpected Journey, the first installment, tells the story of Bilbo Baggins, Frodo’s beloved uncle and adventurer. Bilbo is an average hobbit living in the Shire, when the wizard Gandalf approaches him and asks him to accompany a pack of exiled dwarves on their journey to reclaim their home. Bilbo proves he is more than just some ordinary hobbit as he goes on the adventure of a lifetime, filled with dangers at every turn.
I liked The Lord of the Rings because of its stunning visuals and beautiful music score and The Hobbit did not disappoint. I also loved seeing Bilbo and hearing more about his story. I loved that the dwarves that were introduced, even though I would have liked to get to know them more. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has seen The Lord of the Rings and loved it!
