After the three LOTR movies my fear was that 'does Peter Jackson still have some adventures left in him about middle earth?' the trailer of The Hobbit didn't look exciting but i had faith in Peter Jackson and he doesn't disappoint at all.

Wizard Gandalf( Ian McKellen) takes a reluctant Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) on a adventure towards the lonely mountain. accompanying him are 13 Dwarves who are led by Thorin ( Richard Armitage). Lonley Mountain is home for Thorin and he has to take it back from a dragon called Smaug who has taken control of it.

the film has the same template and structure as LOTR but even then it constantly fires new set pieces at you keeping you engaged all the time with one spectacle after another.

the film's writing fails in making any of the new characters memorable. they dont leave a lasting impression like it happened with the first LOTR film. maybe, they will come into their own in the 2nd film.

Gollum's ( Andy Serkis) brief role steals the show from everyone around . the scenes between Bilbo and Gollum are my favorite scenes in the film.the take back in terms of character's are the ones which were part of LOTR.

at almost 3 hours of running time it didn't bore me a minute but dont take my word for it. for me even repeat viewings of LOTR is not boring.

the moment Martin Freeman appears on screen he reminded me so much of Aamir Khan that i felt this would have been a perfect film for him to crossover.

Word of mouth - The Hobbit is a rollicking adventure ride.The only thing disappointing is the long wait for the next one. till then we will have to live with the image of the eye of Smaug.

Rating - 3.5 (Good)
