100 Word Review – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

If An Unexpected Journey existed in a vacuum I’m sure I’d think it was great. Unfortunately, in comparison to the trilogy it exists alongside, it comes across unexpectedly mixed. 

Freeman and McKellen are great, but of the 13 Dwarves looking to reclaim their homeland, I can only describe two. Gollum is once again the real highlight—how Serkis isn’t Oscar nominated I do not know.

The problem is it feels stretched out, and doesn’t look half as good as the older films. An over-reliance on CGI, and possible greed, has put paid to this matching the quality of the previous films.
