Being a huge fan of Tolkien and everything he has written, I couldn't wait for this movie to come out. The hobbit is such a classic tale that I think almost anyone can enjoy. I enjoyed part 1 so much, I'm having trouble organizing my thoughts into one simple review lol.

As most of us already know, Peter Jackson used the appendices from Lord of the Rings in order to add material and flesh out back stories and subplots from the hobbit, that weren't originally written in such depth. Most people are thrilled to see the hobbit come to life and more! I felt an unexpected journey could not have been better honestly! I suppose that's a huge biased opinion lol, but I think the majority of fans of the hobbit will love the film adaptation. What I'm also hearing from people, who weren't even into lord of the rings that much, they loved the hobbit.

The hobbit is definitely more light hearted and humerous than lord of the rings, yet it still engages in an immersive and real world of middle earth. There are very serious, almost shocking moments (the word disturbing would have been over the top) that surprised me because although the movie is much more light hearted, it still has the serious intense moments. I kind exactly explain further without slight spoilers.

Anyways, the movie is hilarious yet gripping, the score is amazing, the landscapes are gorgeous, the character development is spot on, and the acting is superb. If you're looking for a film adaptation of the hobbit that will do it justice, An Unexpected Journey exceeds all expectations and desires lol. See it! I'm planning on seeing it again, and maybe try out the '3d 48fps.' The movie itself was perfect and there wasn't anything I'd change. Now I have to wait in agony for the next two films!!!!
