An excellent, way too long journey back to Tolkien's Middle Earth
In the Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Peter Jackson brings us back to Tolkien's Middle Earth in a very good almost flawless way.
Not unlike the LOTR trilogy it is a masterpiece when it comes to makeup, visual effects, soundtrack, cinematography and photography. With a very good cast (if not perfect) that proves to have an excellent chemistry, Jackson makes a very decent adaptation of the book.
However this movie has the issue (and I've been told the book has it too)that it is so complex and full of detail that you may get lost at some points trying to connect the dots. This may be one of the things that leads this movie to being so long that after the first hour and a half there are several points where you take off your 3D glasses and start to get up because you think "OK this might be a good ending" but the movie keeps going and you see yourself returning to the same place and again and again. Some people may be annoyed by this.
But finally at the end of the movie you feel like it was a very good movie (maybe even to the point of becoming a classic) and a worthy prequel to the LOTR trilogy.
