The best part of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey I believe has got to be Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, he plays the character perfectly. If you don’t know, The Hobbit is a prequel book to The Lord of the Rings. And fun little factoid, originally it was written to be a children’s book.
When going to watch the Hobbit, you have many choices how to watch it. There’s 3D, HFR 3D, or in plain ol’ 24 frames per second. I’ve heard good and bad things about watching it in 48 frames per second, some say it makes everything look too sharp and therefore fake, and others say it makes everything look very life-like. I’m not a fan of 3D, so while the High Frame Rate version intrigued me, it wasn’t worth it to have to suffer through 3D making it an easy choice. Now the storyline of The Hobbit is going to be told in three films, in this film a gang of adventurers go out to help capture the dwarf castle from a dragon. The film is beautiful. The locations, the scenery, and the special effects are all top notch. The only real knock I have with the film is some of the cinematography. The camera is constantly in motion, and it draws attention away from the subject on screen. Other than that, The Hobbit is an enthralling and fun fantasy-adventure that will keep you very interested. Overall, I’d give The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 4/5 stars. Go see it.
