|Bilbo is initially not keen to be taken away from his home in the shire|
At the end of the film we get to see Bilbo finally prove himself after a failed attempt at leaving the group to go back home Bilbo finally begins to relate to the dwarves lack of home, he then saves Thorin from a group of orcs and the equilibrium is set again to begin the next film in the series.
The film was obviously impressive in the areas you would have expected, as I said before I really liked Martin Freedman, the scenery in New Zealand is wonderful, and the monsters are genuinely grotesque.
However as the film drew to an end we were all definitely ready for the end. It lasts almost 3 hours and at the end there are numerous points where it feels likes the end but instead there is another drawn of scene of peril which we all know is an empty threat.
Have you seen the film as well and what did you think?
