Word Entertainment Inc The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, 2-DVD Special Edition

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the first chapter in Peter Jackson’s new epic trilogy set in Middle-Earth 60 years before J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings saga. Follow Bilbo Baggins as he’s swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them through treacherous lands swarming with Trolls, Goblins, Orcs and deadly Wargs. They must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature Gollum who will change his life forever. Alone with Gollum on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers guile and courage that surprise him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities, tied to the fate of all Middle-Earth. Several key talent members from The Lord of the Rings trilogy reprise their roles, along with exciting new cast members. 2-disc set. Widescreen. Rated PG-13. Approx. 169 minutes.

This movie is great for teens and adults but might be too scary for kids. The movie is fun to watch you are entertained all the way until the end. It has lots of action, big adventure, filmed in new zealand so great camera shots, I highly recommend it!

This is a fantastic introduction to Peter Jackson's new trilogy. It did seem too slow in parts, like they tried to extend the storyline to fit in three long movies. Which is what they are doing, and it is noticeable, but it does not take away from the overall grandeur of the film. One note of caution: it does seem more violent than the original trilogy, so its a good idea to watch before the kids do. Overall, I loved it because I'm a die hard geek.
