Lord of the Rings -- Episode 1 Style
If you love Lord of the Rings, you'll like The Hobbit. Great acting, spectacular landscapes, and amazing visual effects are sure to win it some awards. Attend in 3D if you can. A few new songs will likely have you humming later. The Hobbit is an obvious extension of Lord of the Rings w/ several favorite characters returning along w/ at least 14 new ones. Gollum is creepier than ever and likely too scary for small children.
Star Wars fans may associate this film with Episode 1. A few scenes have questionable value, some "characters" are just odd, and several characters aren't adequately developed. Still, the adventure storyline is intriguing and the mix of action, horror, drama and mild humor will keep you engaged.
>> PROS: Cinematography, visual effects, acting.
>> CONS: Very long, limited character development, under-developed storyline.
