In The Hobbit, a hobbit named Bilbo Swaggins, I mean Baggins, is a peaceful hobbit that values prosperity. His world is quickly turned upside-down when a mysterious wizard, Gandalf, comes by his house. After some small talk, Gandalf leaves the hobbit to his own business. Later that night, multiple dwarves appear at Bilbo's hobbit hole. They discuss an adventure to take back treasure from a dragon. This is why they need Bilbo. Bilbo's is asked to be a burglar for the group of 14. At first, Bilbo declines the offer.
The next morning, Bilbo wakes up to his peaceful life. The only problem is that Bilbo decides to go on the adventure... Bilbo was luckily able to catch up with the party of dwarves and Gandalf before they really started their journey. Their first encounter with an "enemy" is when they are camping and Bilbo see a light and investigates it. It turns out that the light is from a fire surrounded by trolls. After getting captured, the dwarves and Bilbo escape using their wits.
The director recreated the Hobbit very well. The visual effects were incredible, the sound effects were spot on, and the special effects were amazing. The characters appeared slightly different in the movie than I imagined them from what I read in the book. The settings were slightly different from what I thought, too. In the end, I was very impressed by the movie.
I actually think the movie and book were quite similar when thinking of themes. For instance, when at Rivendell, the theme of discovery appears in the book and movie. The hobbit, wizard, and dwarves discover the reputation of their weapons, the moon runes, and map. On the other hand, when the group was trapped by the Wargs in the woods, there was a theme of heroism because Bilbo saves Thorin from the orcs and Wargs in the movie. In the book, none of that actually happens.
I personally enjoyed the movie more than the book because it was more fast-paced than the book. The visually effects showed things on screen that would have been hard to imagine because they were not really described in the book. I did thoroughly enjoy the novel though.
I would give the movie a 4 out of 5 star review. The special effects, sounds, lighting, setting, etc. were spot on. The only problem was that the movie drifted away from the story a little bit. I realize that this was in order to make the movie more entertaining, but it could stay more on track.
This question is a bit tricky in my opinion. But I do think that the movie was a faithful adaptation. The movie was slightly out of order and had a few different elements, but it still stays in line with the book. The added elements (the Arkenstone, orcs, being attacked before reaching Rivendell) didn’t change why the Bilbo and the group are going on this adventure.
