The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey review
4th January 2013
A lot of reviews have not been kind to this film, saying the first 30mins were boring and it was overlong. I have just returned from taking my 10 year old son to see it in 3D. Neither of us was bored at all. Some sequences were slow but magical, the dwaves song just before they leave Bag End was beautiful. The characterisation was good and the direction excellent. Go see it! Don't be put off by any review. Most of these film critics are too old and boring themselves to appreciate this kind of film - because (1) its not made by an east european, scandinavian or asian; (2) it doesn't have lots of left wing messages; (3) there is an absence of violence, sex and swearing!
