Bilbo Baggins, with Thorin and company, have successfully navigated the Misty Mountains. Now they face the new danger of the Mirkwood Forest - and Gandalf has left them to themselves.

Now that's more like it, Peter Jackson! This is the Hobbit movie I bet everyone was expecting to see back in 2012. The epic scope of the adventure is finally realized this time around. The reappearance of Legolas is a definite fan-service but he's still cool. His new friend Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly) is a complete badass but as a female character, she's still unfortunately shackled to a hackneyed love story and it's with one of the dwarves! This setback is counterbalanced by the long awaited appearance of Smaug (voiced by Sherlock) who is AWESOME!!!!!!!!! In short, bigger story, better action, and a supporting cast that you actually remember.

Please stop the overly long movies that are way out of proportion with the books.

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.

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...
