Bilbo was just an average hobbit before Gandalf approached him, inviting him to join a team formed by 13 dwarves in an adventure to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom. they venture through the lands of Goblins and Orcs, Wargs and Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. in the goblin tunnels, Bilbo met with Gollum and gained possession of Gollum's precious ring, a ring that held unexpected quality that decides the fate of the world.
like a smaller version of The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003) series, the experience was overwhelming. despite the serious plot, there was also a lighthearted feel to it, especially with Bilbo being such an innocent man as its center. it was so welcoming to see familiar faces like Gandalf and Frodo in the film. playful dwarves performing tricks while singing too, was so entertaining it left behind a deep impression. the intensity of the battle scenes was somewhat surprising yet satisfying for an overall experience.
