Movie Reviews

  • there are elements in this new film that are as spectacular as much of the Rings trilogy was, but there is much that is flat-footed and tedious as well, especially in the early going
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • is merely one-third of an unrealized story, a carbon copy of something rich, lucid, and authentic
    Review rate : C by Laremy Legel [ ]
  • delivers more of what made his earlier trilogy so compelling -- colorful characters on an epic quest amid stunning New Zealand scenery -- it doesn't offer nearly enough novelty to justify the three-film, nine-hour treatment
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • a competent, entertaining effort but it neither enthralls nor amazes in the way its predecessors did
    3 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • a classic adventure quest in the making; packed with colorful characters, gorgeous settings and plenty of action, the only setbacks are technical ones
    Review rate : A- by Dave Trumbore [Collider ]
  • An Unexpected Journey is proof that Jackson still has a knack for stories in this world, and that he may have more surprises in store as the rest of this new, unexpected trilogy unfolds
    4 of 5 by Katey Rich [Cinema Blend ]
  • 'The Hobbit' doesn't stray far from the mold, but it's a thrilling ride that's one of the most enjoyable, exciting and engaging tentpoles of the year
