My Penny of View: Long time ago, when Dwarf Thror was the King of Lonely Mountain and he brought prosperous to the people, until the attack of Smaug the Dragon. As the result, the whole kingdom collapsed and the people lived in disaster. On the other hand, Bilbo was a young hobbit and he was tricked by wizard, Gandalf to host a party for Thorin and his company of Dwarves. They were on the mission to retake back Lonely Mountain from Smaug the Dragon. Later, Bilbo has been recruited as "burglar" to steal treasure from Smaug the Dragon. Bilbo joined the company unwillingly and they have started their unexpected journey. Will they succeed?

If you are fans of Lord of The Ring, definitely you are familiar with some of the characters in this movie. Hobbit is a very important character in LOTR because he is the one gotten the mysterious ring form Gollum. Besides hobbit, there are elves, dwarf, wizard and others; so many special characters and I think the only way to differentiate all of them is by size and appearance. The movie doesn't have an ending, the almost 2.5 hours movie is all about the traveling from Shire to the bottom of Lonely Mountain. I guess it will going to be a sequel movie whether they successful to take down the Smaug the Dragon.

Rating : ★★★★☆
