THE HOBBIT - AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY is a fantasy action film in which a young hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, is enlisted by the wizard Gandalf to go on an adventure with dwarves.

Violence

Scenes of moderate violence include the storming of a dwarf city by a dragon, and battles between the band of dwarves and both orcs and goblins. In one battle there is reference to a dwarf king being beheaded, with sight of a head being held by an orc before it is thrown to the ground. One orc has his arm severed with a sword, and others are shot with arrows. At one point the dwarves are captured by goblins and must fight to escape. This battle includes decapitations and stabbings, and a large goblin's stomach being slashed open.

There are also scenes of threat, including one in which Bilbo and the dwarves are held captive by trolls who plan to eat them.

The film also features scenes in which characters smoke pipes and drink alcohol. However, this reflect the habits of the fantasy characters and does not condone smoking or excessive drinking.
