The Hobbit as a Hero Narrative - sources? Can't Post

Hi all! I'm asking for some help on behalf of my daughter, who is hitting a wall in trying to find any criticism of the movie that deals with the concept of Bilbo as a hero. Searches just turn up news outlet review after news outlet review, and nothing of more depth. She may have to turn to stuff about the book as a fallback in order to have a source to cite in her essay (which, otherwise, she's just fine on -- has plenty of ideas of her own!), but would rather not. I was hoping that someone here might know of some more analytical pieces that include the movie in them and deal with Bilbo as a hero?
