Review of The Hobbit
J. R. R. Tolkien made the Hobbit as a book back in 1937. Later on, the book was published as a movie in 2012. The movie is divided in 3 parts, with one year separating the publishing. In the movie, you follow a young Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. As he is set out on an "unexpected journey" (Which is also the title of the first movie,) to the Lonely Mountain with a very spirited group of Dwarves to reclaim their stolen mountain home, from a dragon named Smaug. The group has company by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, and Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led be the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield.

If you compare the movie and the book, you will discover a lot if comparison and you can see all the red lines pulled together towards a very exciting adventure. The book and the movie have the exactly same intro, and give the viewer a good look into the world of hobbits and norms and values for a hobbit. The Hobbit is a predecessor to the trilogy Lord of the Rings, and you can easily find comparison between those two films.
For an example:
In one of the scenes from: Lord of the Rings you can see three stone trolls in the background. That is because in The Hobbit, the trolls are turned to stone by the sunlight, and there is many more. It is all connected somehow; just have your eyes open when watching the films. My specific opinion is that you get a lot more detailed story out of the book, and you will get to know the characters a lot better. Your imagination is the only limit. When I watched the film, I got a little disappointed in how they have made the orcs for an example. You could clearly see that they were computer animated, I don’t like the idea that they have split the movie up on three films. Is gives me that impression that they only want to make more money on the cinema tickets, maybe because it was an expensive movie to make. On the other hand, it is a long story with many details, they could not make only one movie which would live up to the book, that could be an explanation for the three movies. However, I think overall that is a great predecessor and a really good movie, filled with action, humor and expectations.
