Much better than the first but its plot and length was just grueling. The CGI was not impressive compared to previous installments. Bilbo is just a character not worth following and it seems the quest was just uneventful compared to Frodo's. The protagonists were again bountiful but nice to see some familiar faces in action while the antagonists was just not as fearsome. Overall, worth viewing for its direction, action and character development to fit the pieces together. Not much else to review about and nothing to rave either.

This is my first review on film crave and I thought that this movie would be a great start. "The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug" is THE best movie of the year. My favorite character is Tauriel, a newly added female elf to this already great movie. Other characters such as Thorin, Bilbo, and Gandalf also blow this movie out of the water. Peter Jackson has done it again! Go now to see "The Hobbit, Desolation of Smaug" in theaters today! (I am king under the mountain!) 🐲

Now this feels like a lord of the rings movie.The Hobbit: the desolation of Smaug. This movie is a outstanding improvement from the first one, the make-up is even more better and the charactors are good this time, the things that I did not like is that the movie does slow down at parts and the CGI at parts look a bit cartoonest. and this movie will get a 4/4 star's "Best movie of 2013".

Recaptures Everything Great about LOTR

The news that three new movies were going to be made by the same crew that had made the modern masterpieces known as the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy certainly set a high bar for the quality of the pictures to be made. This to me seemed unrealistic, considering three movies were going to be made from a book about as big as your average DVD case. That said, I had expected better than "An Unexpected Journey". The movie lacked literally everything that had made the original Trilogy great: the use of special effects to make fantastic rooms, landscapes and creatures of extraordinary grandeur, great acts of heroism in the face of absolute hopelessness, and the success of the most unusual individuals against impossible odds. That being said, "The Desolation of Smaug" recaptured everything great a...

all show little substance

As a big fan of the lord of the rings i was looking forward to the hobbit trilogy. i actually liked the first hobbit movie. it was more like a childrens film with lots of humour etc but i still enjoyed it.
This 2nd one in the trilogy was a bit of let down really. i found the start boring. and as some critic said about the first movie its hard to care about the quest here . talking dragons like talking dogs i just find silly. what i noticed was how dated this film looks compared to the lord of the rings that was made 10 years ago..
its just hard to care about any of the characters. none of the dwarfs die its so far fetched the fight scenes. even the orcs are not as scary looking as LOTR.. theres no real hint of danger even wiith bibo and smaug it was silly as were the words the dragon u...

Review: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Blah. I hoped for more from "visionary" filmmaker Peter Jackson, who enthralled audiences with his beautiful, epic, and emotional Lord of the Rings trilogy 10 years ago. Since than he had made King Kong, which is, in my opinion, his best film ever. In 2009, he released The Lovely Bones, which was wrecked by critics and audiences (can't really go against them for that). Now he's pulled a George Lucas and created CGI-reliant prequels to The Lord of the Rings. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was actually kind of fun - delivering thrills, laughs, and a LOTR series highlight with the Gollum sequence.

Now, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug came out. Besides the dumb title, irrelevant characters and plot threads, shitty CGI, cartoony action sequences, and the loss of our main hero, Bilbo...
