I think the focus was placed heavily upon... [In reply to] Can't Post

Bilbo, Gandalf, and Thorin, our main characters. They anchor the movies and will ultimately have the most integral parts to play throughout the entire story arc. So they naturally got the most screen time and are also - subsequently - getting the most praise.

But I think they've given us some fun introductions and hints as to what we can expect in the next 2 acts with the other dwarves... and sometimes not always directly from each characters own mouth.

If anything, I think we have to pay a little more attention to the rest of the dwarves characters... the details are there but a lot more subtle.

I thought Balin and Dwalin were defined pretty well because they are tied closely to Thorin, of whom we have the most back story and motivation of all the Dwarves. To me, the motivations or intentions of the other dwarves, are yet to be discovered. We know they want to go to the Mountain and reclaim the treasure, and that they were the only one's who answered Thorin's call; however, we don't know why.

Tinkers, miners, toymakers... they aren't soldiers/warriors... as Balin put it. I think as the journey continues to progress and they befall more hardships together (without Gandalf) we will see more of who these Dwarves are and what is going on in their individual heads.

Middle Earth is New Zealand!
