The Hobbit

The Hobbit from Peter Jackson is not a typical fantasy movie we are used to.  Even though the plot has the look and feel of a cliché dragons and demons movie, the film concentrates mainly on the influence of an underdog in a team of fighters who are trying to get back their homeland.

The plot revolves around Bilbo Boggins who happen to become the crew member of Dwarf’s who are on a mission to get back their homeland which was attacked and captured by Smaug, a dragon. Bilbo is recruited as a Burglar who will be handy in stealing Gold later. The adventurous journey’s first leg is the movie basically about.

Well, the movie has the fun element and also the engaging element. But the detailing makes the movie too long and towards the middle of the movie it slows down the content. Apart from that it’s a simply crafted smooth film that never goes to an over the top high or a totally dragging sigh. Some portions were kind of stretched out to add fun.

Peter Jackson has packed the movie nicely with some cool mix of fun, ethics and emotions. Screenplay as I mentioned earlier is slow towards the middle of the move and nicely picks up towards the end. Loved the dialog were Boggins tells Thorin why he wanted to assist them even after hearing Thorin’s opinion about his inclusion. Visual effects are cool and I loved the Rock fight and the Goblin characters.   Cinematography is a pleasant one and the color tone is also a classy one.

On screen everyone was cool in their characters. Martin Freeman was cool as the funny, confused and scared Bilbo Boggins. Ian Mackellam dons his safe zone role easily. Rest of the cast was also impressive.

On the whole “The Hobbit” from Peter Jackson is a descent entertainer. Now that Thorin has got away safely from Azog, let’s hope for a better visual and joyful second part with the dragon, dwarfs and the hobbit Bilbo. My rating 3/5.
