IGN Reviews—The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

IGN: Director Peter Jackson's fourth trip to Middle-earth can't quite recapture the greatness, emotional impact or charm of his Lord of the Rings trilogy, but there's nevertheless much to enjoy about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. (Cinema, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) 7.9/10

Wow...surprised at the score.

Not that it is bad, just lower than I thought it would be.

The reviewer's complaints seem to be

- Frodo being there
- Use of CG

Whilst I can understand his problems with the second, Frodo is there for a very good reason - he serves as a connection from the original trilogy to the Hobbit, and brings fans of The Lord of the Rings right back into Middle Earth.

those are pretty lame reasons to budge the score down to a 7.9....but, then again...it's ign.

i never knew IGN reviewed films and so i was intrigued. at least they are consistently incompetent at journalism across-the-board.

anyhow, i knew people who were expecting the hobbit to be like LOTR were going to be disappointed as it is more about the story than full scale battles and whatnot.

I didnt read the review but aint Hobbit before lord of the rings? If so it makes sense to show Frodo.

This is ign though.
