The Hobbit (Official Movie) : A Visual Spectacular

The Hobbit is easily the most anticipated film across the globe in 2012. Unlike the Twilight saga "The Hobbit" was a masterpiece of literature that was an instant classic from J.R.R Tolkien who inspired Led Zeppelin among many notable artists. There was a lot of controversy surrounding this movie and the problems with actors in NZ suffering over wage problems but I really like what has been achieved by Jackson even if Warner Brothers stopped him from speaking out, unless he wanted to risk losing arguably the biggest movie franchise in the world. If you liked the Lord of The Rings movies the latest release from Middle Earth doesn't disappoint.

To avoid ruining it for people who haven't been lucky enough to see it yet I will only offer some well placed critiques on my favorite components of. Firstly I adored the Dwarves as the central focus of the movie that functions as a pseudo fellowship accept everyone is below 5 feet as opposed to LOTR. My brother Charlie also really liked the inclusion of the wizard Radagast the Brown who looks after every woodland creature he comes into contact with. Saruman may say that Radagast has eaten to many magic mushrooms in the woods and suffers long term damage, but honestly I think Saruman is just a bit jealous of the free spirited wizard who is strong enough to fight Twilight Ringwraiths .

The special effects of "The Hobbit" are also second to none with the amazing world of Goblins brought to life to startling effect. The falling wooden bridges and fire spitting out goblins from every direction is stressful to watch even if the dwarves are an indestructible force of power lol. The individual actors of the dwarves also bring a new dimension to the movie as opposed to LOTR poor acting. The trolls and their comedic attire is truly thrilling and entertaining on the big screen. Martin Freeman who acts as Bilbo does a fantastic job even when battling Gollum in a high stakes game of riddles were there is much to be losted and gained. By far my favorite part of the film were the trolls whos cooking prowess will amaze as well as their stupidity.
The tone of "The Hobbit" is light hearted and down right funny making for a film that never lags and always entertains.

Rating 5/5      A Must See
