From the reviews, it appears that the Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is "AnUnexpected Disappoint" to a certin extend. However, I have hope that it will at least one of the best movies of the year. The general opinion is that the movie takes 30-60 minutes before the movie's plot gets moving. But didn't the Fellowship of the Ring also start slowly? Guess we will have to wait and see, unless you have already watched it at midnight earlier today, if so please comment below with your spoiler free thoughts.
Chris Stuckmann: B-: Although he gave the Lord of the Rings trilogy an A+ he was vastly disappointed with The Hobbit resulting in the B- rating.
Jeremy Jahns: Buy it On Blu-Ray (basically 4 star rating): Jeremy Jahns is a massive Lord of the Rings fan and the trilogy is his favorite movie of all-time but it was not as great as expected.
Rotten Tomatoes: 69%: While Rotten Tomatoes is often vastly wrong in their ratings, it is surprising low rating. Here is what they said: "Peter Jackson's return to Middle-earth is visually resplendent and features strong performances from Martin Freeman and Ian McKellen, but the film's deliberate pace robs the material of some of its majesty."
Schmoes Know: 4/5 and 4.75/5: One Schomoe almost wanted to give the film a 5/5 rating.
IGN: 7.9/10: With IGN's complete lack consistency in their recent reviews, I hold their opinion in low regards.
Hopefully I will be seeing The Hobbit on Tuesday or Thusday in 3D. When will you be seeing the Hobbit? Please comment below. If you have already seen and reviewed the film, please comment below and I will try to add a link to your review among the ones above.
