After his huge success with the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, director Peter Jackson returns to writer J.R.R. Tolkien's territory with this epic-sized start to a three-film prequel. Martin Freeman plays Bilbo Baggins, swept into a quest by dwarves to help reclaim their turf.
The tale also marks Bilbo's first meeting with Gollum, played again by Andy Serkis. Other "Lord of the Rings" returnees include Elijah Wood, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Ian Holm and Christopher Lee ... and the cast also features Benedict Cumberbatch, the television "Sherlock" to Freeman's Dr. Watson. DVD extras: production videos. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
