Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) joins Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and a band of dwarves led by the brave Thorin (Richard Armitage) on a treacherous quest to reclaim their mountain home from the fierce dragon Smaug in this epic fantasy adventure adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved novel by the creative forces behind the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Long before Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) made his arduous journey to Mordor, his brave uncle Bilbo embarked on an adventure for the ages. Bilbo's story gets under way when the great wizard Gandalf appears at his front gate with a most unusual offer. Displaced from their massive fortress in the Lonely Mountain by Smaug - a greedy dragon who coveted their gold - a community of noble dwarves were decimated by a surprise attack by monstrous orcs, whose dreaded leader the Pale Orc slew their king in a gruesome battle. Now, Thorin, the descendent of the king, is determined to reclaim his mountain kingdom for his people. Together with a fearless team of dwarves, Thorin and Gandalf recruit Bilbo to aid them in their quest since Hobbits have the unique ability to go undetected when they wish to. Before Bilbo, Gandalf, and the dwarves can reach The Lonely Mountain and defeat Smaug, however, they'll have to contend with trolls, goblins, stone giants, Gollum (Andy Serkis), and even the dreaded Pale Orc himself. Peter Jackson directs a screenplay he co-penned with Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Guillermo del Toro.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 19 reviews.
JerriNicci More than 1 year ago
I loved both the extra footage and the behind the scenes features. The menus are tastefully designed, although I did find the main menu screen intro to be just a little disorienting. The product comes in a beautiful case that looks like a book, with a holographic 3-D picture on the front. The only issue I have with the case is that the picture is on the wrong side for a book, but this was most likely done because most people are right-handed and would take the case off the shelf with their right hand and remove the inner casing from the cover with their left. If you want the 5-disc either as a Collector's item or because you enjoy watching behind the scenes footage, make sure you get this product! Any other listing, either on Barnes and Noble or another site, with a different product code is probably the 2-disc version. If you want the extended version, but don't care for the behind the scenes stuff and want to save money, I recommend you get the 2-disc.

This is a great movie, and I am so happy I finally found this particular version. Couldn't find it hardly any place else.

Will definitely buy the Desolation of Smaug extended version with the CDs on how it was made.

For any Tolkien fan or for that matter any fan of fantasy and good story telling this is a movie to see.
Sybil625 More than 1 year ago
This is the director's cut, or expanded edition, with some extra scenes as well as the documentary discs - always good. Tolkien + Jackson = some really excellent entertainment.
jj_ohio More than 1 year ago
The additional scenes were a good addition. Though the movie certainly does not stay true to the book and takes liberties with the screenplay, it is an enjoyable trip to Middle Earth. Haven't looked at all the extras with this multi-dvd yet, but seem to be a nice bonus for either simple movie fans or regular LOTR fans. Yes, The Hobbit is not part of the Tolkien's trilogy, but it the foundation for those epics. Though I prefer the books and Tolkien's verbal imagery, this movie and I hope the installments to follow are well worth watching and being swept into Middle Earth.

Great for everyone, fan of the books or not.

Great introduction to the world of Hobbits, Hobbitown, dwarfs, wizards, elfs and goblins. I didn't think Jackson could pull it off but he did.

Review title: Gory Grand Adventure. The protagonist is not prepared for the grand and gory adventure he is undertaking. Along the way he meets some challenges that assist him to empathize with those that have asked for his help. If you enjoy violence and gore you are sure to be attracted to this storyline, it has plenty of guts and gore to keep you at the edge of your seat; this is not for the faint of heart. You will join the protagonists and his newly acquired quote, unquote friends on a memorable adventure. The characters are so life like it with frighten you.
