The Hobbit: Movie Review

Review: It is quite understandable when a book comprising 1000+ pages is turned into a three part movie. But when a book having only about 300+ pages is turned into a three part movie it leaves you with a lot of unanswered questions in your head. Fortunately, The Hobbit lays to rest whatever entangled ambiguities that are running in your head.

The Hobbit is the story of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman). A story so well told and shot that it will leave the audience with moments of joy, a story that will make you want to stand up and clap, a story that will leave you with moist eyes; yet with a wide twinkle-eyed smile. The journey of Bilbo Baggins starts with Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen) tricking him into being host to a bunch of Dwarves. Dwarves who are on an mission to reclaim their homeland (The Lonely Mountain) which had been ripped apart and taken over by Smaug (a deadly fire-breathing Dragon). After a lot of hustle and tussle Bilbo finally gives in and decides to join the Dwarves on their journey. The Dwarves, led by Thorin (Richard Armitage), begin their epic journey to Lonely Mountain.

Almost everything about the movie is sculpted so beautifully that it will leave the audience with their eyes as well as their mouths wide open and gaping with awe. The visuals are stupendous, the landscaping is exotic, the cinematography looks like it was woven in gold and Middle-Earth is shown in all its glory. My favorite part of the movie is the scene and the conversation that transpires between Bilbo Baggins and Gollum/Smeagol (the unbelievably brilliant Andy Serkis). The scene is so intense and brilliant it will leave you with sweaty palms and most probably even a sweaty forehead.

The main question – Will you be able to watch The Hobbit if you have not watched Lord of the Rings? The answer is, yes. After all, this is where it all started. Watching The Hobbit is like eating a delicious cake and if you’ve watched the LOTR trilogy it would seem as if the cake was covered with the perfect icing.

The only (oh so slight) letdown was the background score. With the story being depicted in such grand fashion, Howard Shore could have definitely done a better job.

Most parts of the score was picked up from the LOTR trilogy, which is something I really didn’t expect. The acting was brilliant and beyond imagination. Martin Freeman acted phenomenally. His character, his bravery, his quirkiness were perfect and top-notch. Sir Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage and the rest of the cast also performed with a lot of elegance and class.

LOTR fanatics are sure to freak out (in a good way). Take a bow Peter Jackson. You’ve done it again.

Verdict: Will leave you with moist eyes; yet with a wide twinkle-eyed smile. Perfect icing for LOTR fans.
