Today we went to see a film based on the book 'The Hobbit' by J.R.R. Tolkien. I read the book a couple of years ago with my Dad, it took sooooo long! It is an action packed fantasy film.
The plot in a nutshell is Bilbo Baggins joining a band of dwarves to win back their homeland. The first part of the movie was funny, light hearted and happy compared to the second part that was serious, dark and scary.
The character Golum was amazing. I enjoyed his riddles and his make up was seamless. His eyes were sad and wet. His voice was like stones rubbing against each other. I didn't know whether to feel scared or sad for him.
The best part was when Bilbo saved Thorin, the dwarf leader. Thorin was battling the pale Orc and Bilbo rose to the occasion and rushed to help him knowing that he was probably going to die a painful death. Bilbo had become a hero full of courage and leadership.
The film was so long we had to wake mum up!
The ending was definitely an annoying cliff hanger because Smaug, the dragon only opened his eyes.
I think the story had a message in it. To take all the opportunities that are offered to you.
My rating of this film is 10 out of 10 and I can't wait for the next instalment.
