The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (DVD + UV Copy( &hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Hugo Weaving

"The Hobbit -An Unexpected Journey" is an enjoyable movie that lives up to the high standards of director Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

Some sequences are too long such as the feast scenes where we meet the dwarves and the escape from the Goblins. However this doesn't take away too much from the high quality of the movie.

The story of a hobbit joining the dwarf's quest to recover their gold from a fierce dragon is just that - a great story- and Jackson tells it well, with plenty of help from a rousing score, New Zealand scenery and CGI effects.

This is a slow moving drama that puts its main character in a moral dilemma of his own making and examines his subsequent actions. I found myself wondering what I would do if I was in a similar position, which I presume is what the director wanted.

The main character, Richard, seems to have it all. He is a young man from a privileged Dublin background who has just finished secondary school. He was captain of the school rugby team and is liked by everyone. He is ready to enjoy the summer before he starts university. At a party he meets the girlfriend of a teammate. He "fancies" her and after a while they start going out.

At a later party Richard and the ex-boyfriend… Read more
