   I had read author J. R. R. Tolkien's book "The Hobbit" and I watched this movie specifically to see if director Peter Jackson would stay true to the original work. I should not have worried though because Jackson does an excellent job of both tying into the aforementioned trilogy and segueing into this story. This movie is a prequel to the events in the LOTR so characters such as Gandalf, Gollum, Frodo and Elrond all appear. In this story Bilbo Baggins recounts how as a young Hobbit he traveled with Gandalf and a band of dwarves lead by their leader Thorin Oakenshield.  Along the way the timid, peaceful Bilbo becomes brave and resilient and earns the respect of the dwarves for his bravery in battle. There are two more parts of this trilogy still to be released and they are sure to be as action-packed and event-filled as this one.
