Mini Review - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (out Dec 26) is an hour too long and lacks the interesting characters and intriguing subplots that I remember so vividly from The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. A few good scenes save it though (such as Bilbo's interaction with Gollum). I'm also not sold on the new 48 frames per second which make the visual effects more obvious. Grade: B-.
