Games Fiends Review - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey I Games Fiends

Games Fiends writes, "Like many of us, I had heard a number of conflicting reviews of the film before entering the theater. Some critics praised it while others said it was slow and didn’t develop the characters enough. However, I was determined to keep an open mind. After such a long wait for another film could anything realistically live up to the hype? Not to mention that The Hobbit is a classic book and fans of the original text tend to scrutinize every detail. The phrase “The book was better” is practically a staple in the world of book to film productions. However, what I found after watching the film was that the moviegoers may have expected more than even Tolkien himself provided." (Cinema, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) 4/5
