To be honest, at first I was a little reluctant to spend almost three hours to see thiz movie but I know I will go anyway, just for curiosity’s sake. However, it ends up with “Wow!” Thiz movie serves as a prequel to Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy consists of “The Fellowship of the Ring” (2001), “The Two Towers” (2002) and “The Return of the King” (2003). The tale starts with a comfortable pace and very good peaceful feeling by showing the beautiful Hobbit Village. I’m surprised that some scenes are almost too simple and humble for epic like thiz. Don’t get me wrong, I love thiz part very much! There is a cameo appearance from Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) and it’s also about how they introduce young Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and the uninvited 13 dwarves one by one. It’s not quite as grand as the previous trilogy, it’s merely simpler, but surely has heart in it. For me, Peter Jackson is another George Lucas with his Middle-earth universe. Jackson really knows for sure about how every single thing should look like. His attention to detail both visible and unseen is remarkable. Thiz movie is very neat and well-arranged. You almost can’t find a single hole or mistake. Everyone takes their role proportionally. Martin Freeman delivers his central figure with depth as Bilbo Baggins. Richard Armitage shows a precise charisma as the dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield . Ian McKellen brings his presence with wisdom as the powerful wizard Gandalf. And plus the minor parts but memorable ones like Christopher Lee as the white wizard Saruman, Hugo Weaving as the mighty elf-lord Elrond and Cate Blanchett as the beauteous elf Galadriel. All three of them look younger and divine than ever. And last but certainly not least, the dirty creature Smeágol finally comes out and perhaps it would be the most awaited scene for the fans. Just like in the previous movies, thiz character is amazing! I almost can say, Smeágol (also known as Gollum) might have delivered the best acting for overall, not because the other Actors are bad, but you can see it yourself, the complex emotion and sound are very convincing. The man behind it is Andy Serkis. There are so many similar adventures have been made before, but only a few like thiz J.R.R. Tolkien’s legendarium that is definitely beyond imagination. Everything is bigger than anything. It’s like creating a whole new world in a whole new way. It’s a great basic material as a novel in the first place and it’s even a greater presentation as a movie. In summary, thiz movie is worth watching even if you’re not a fan. Thiz is a journey that you want to take.
