Wow, Thorin, you got Bilbo wrong and you got the Elves wrong too! His scene in Dol Guldur really threw me out of the movie. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum. Elves, Goblins, Orcs, Hobbits and Humans and other creatures defined their roles in this world and their conflicts. I'm an editor at heart, and am generally hyper-sensitive about cutting down to the bone. Genre: Adventure Fantasy Language: English Subtitle: English Subtitle Muxed Source: The.

Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum. I've seen a lot of hay being made about the film being bloated and, yes, indulgent. The frame story doesn't blend in naturally and the history of Erebor has too much to show in too little time. Peter Jackson has out done his self by creating this great film. The entire film is slow! Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield.
This is particularly apparent during the Orc chase and above all the absurd Goblin Town escape. So, I am sat here mightily annoyed that once again graphics and self indulgent, completely pointless action scenes have trumped good storytelling and pacing. I was about 8 years old when I was first introduced to the Hobbit from the animated 1 hour movie. The fighting in the ring parallels the fight for their life, when the ultimate, highly anticipated, action filled fight demonstrates to be their biggest challenge they are prepared to die for one another.

I couldn't wait to return to Middle-earth but now I'm not sure if I want to go back to this new cartoon version. There is a version of this trilogy, that is 4 and a half hours long, removes a lot of the subplots, and tries it's best to tell Tokien's original story. There's a good movie somewhere in The Hobbit, and had Jackson shown more restraint we might have seen it. This was the stake through the heart of this film. It's a simple message, yet, the book finds a way to make this message profound giving the characters depth and meaning and focusing on the hobbit as one individual, insignificant in his eyes, in an amazing world.
The camera is flying and whirling so limitlessly that it just doesn't feel like an authentic movie anymore. Viewers, like my kids, who have never read the books and are fascinated by animated computer novels, games, and the unrealistic expectations of immortality in virtual super humans. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Most of the dwarfs are completely redundant and I could not identify or even accept Bilbo. Most of the dwarfs are completely redundant and I could not identify or even accept Bilbo.
I don't get dazzled by graphics anymore if I ever did at all , and 3D action films do not make a film good. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. First came the original trilogy, a popular success and critically acclaimed. Where does that leave us? He also repeats those several minutes of platform game inside caves that we saw in Moria and in his version of King Kong. Oh Young is a lonely heiress who feels she must look after others and herself after her parents get divorced and she finds herself becoming visually impaired.
Another plus is a lot of the sequences being shorter for the first two films in general, it felt less bloated, but the third act did drag on for a bit because of just how long I had been watching. It's a line that clearly outlines Jackson and his co-writers' intentions, yet it comes off as a veiled apology, as if the film-making team knew that what they have created is going to be problematic for die-hard Middle Earth fans. And then, slowly, a fatal distance opens up between what we're hoping and what we're actually seeing. This is missing from the movie: Bilbo even seemed to have more or less disappeared between the troll encounter and the stone giants' battle. The Hobbit is not an epic story. We also get to see Saruman and Galadriel in a boring scene that has absolutely no relevance to the main narrative.
He never became the grandiose, cocky, tempered tough guy that this movie seems to try to portray him as. Where does that leave us? See how quickly it takes to say that? The other twelve dwarves are something of a blur, but a few of them manage to make an impression, even with limited screen time. So right there is the problem with The Hobbit. She survives and after two years of laying low, re-emerges in Bangkok to face her old foes and foil a plot to detonate a bomb in the city. The way Bilbo goes from being an outcast to being accepted is contrived and rushed and totally obvious. If you loved the earlier films, these are moments you will hold on to, but they're very few, and they're not enough. It feels like he was made for the character, getting all the little mannerisms down and the dialogue between him and the other characters works.
Some of these battles have pockets of interest: A conflict with goblins plays out like a trapeze act, in three dimensions, with the combatants falling through space, landing and regrouping. You will hate this movie. I believe it's because of the lowered stakes of The Hobbit. It's rather the difference between having an appointment you need to get to in heavy traffic and taking a weekend to just drive around, stopping when and where you like. It leaves us with all main characters intact and no dramatic tension.
Further to this point, smaller problems exist such as Bilbo never handling a sword to suddenly taking on killer beasts like he has been to He-Man training school. Which brings up the most contentious point of this whole Hobbit affair: the fact that it's a three-part epic. I am not going to sugar-coat this film or give it a good review just because people tell me I should. As a side-effect, the much lighter tone will be jarring for a lot of established franchise fans, the very people the film seems to be primarily aimed at.
