The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey | Geekenstein Review

"Based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s acclaimed prequel to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (the first of three films based on the book) chronicles the early years of Bilbo Baggins (previously played by Ian Holmes, now given a likable turn by Martin Freeman). This film shows Bilbo’s fateful meeting with Gandalf (a wittily mischievous return by Ian McKellen), which leads to an unexpected party of 13 dwarves at Bilbo’s house. These dwarves are looking for a fast and small burglar, and Gandalf has given them the impression that Bilbo would be the perfect candidate. While wholly adventure-wary, Bilbo joins the dwarves and Gandalf on their quest to the Lonely Mountain to take back the dwarf’s birthright from the devilish dragon, Smaug. Along the way, the troupe runs into hungry cave trolls, massive rock beings, goblins, a new wizard, a Necromancer and a deep cave within the goblin caverns where Gollum and his precious ring lie in wait." - Joe Marino of Geekenstein.com (Cinema, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) 4.5/5
