The Hobbit was a breathtaking movie that had my eyes glued to the screen the entire time. The adventure of Bilbo Baggins lifted me from my seat and took me to a whole new world.
Bilbo is a hobbit who agrees to accompany a band of dwarves on a dangerous journey to the Lonely Mountains to fulfill the treacherous mission of vanquishing the dragon, Smaug and reclaiming the dwarves’ land. When Bilbo is separated from the dwarves, he finds a magical ring belonging to the creature Gollum. After winning the ring from Gollum in a game of riddles, he escapes, but tells no one about it.
The Hobbit is the first of three movies based on the book The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. This movie followed the book accurately, and the book was often quoted directly, which I found encouraging. I look forward to the next two movies and hope they will be equally true to the world of Tolkien.
