5.0 out of 5 stars another classic March 19 2014
I absolutely loved this movie, but let me at least warn you that if you read the book, and thought that the first movie took liberties, well, this one basically took the main concept of the book and built a story around it. So, die-hard Tolkien fans might be very disappointed and annoyed at this book. Or, if you are like me, I am so used to movies doing this, that whenever I am going to a movie based on a book I do not expect much at all.

Anyway, first off, as to be expected, the acting was phenomenal. I am always amazed when actors can jump from character to character, and play them so well without me comparing to their previous roles, and every actor here was able to do that. They are all so talented that you cannot help but believe they are the character in every role they play.

The cinematography and graphics were also amazing, I absolutely how the made Smaug look, so much expression, intelligence and detail, yet so animalistic.

As for the story, even though it takes great liberty, it was still lots of fun to watch, and there were many scenes that had me on the edge of my seat, paired with others that had me smiling the whole way through.

Overall, I think this is a must watch. If you haven't watched the first one, you really should, and then watch this one! My only hesitation in buying this copy is that I know an extended version will be coming out, and I would prefer to own that one.

Should you buy? yes, unless you also want to wait for the extended version
Should you watch? yes

On my hand-dandy movie scale, this scores a 10
. 0 - burn this, and pretend it never existed;
. 2 - skip theatre; borrow from a friend for free when on DVD/Blu-ray
. 4 - skip theatre; rent on $1 day when on DVD/Blu-ray

4.0 out of 5 stars I am fire. I am death (spoilers) Feb. 24 2014
They have fought past goblins, trolls and a corrupted forest, but now Bilbo and the dwarves will face their worst enemy: the dragon Smaug.

And despite some big deviations from the Tolkien source material (did we really need a romantic subplot for Kili?), "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" is a riveting, passionate ride. Lots of action, lots of strong acting all around, and a dragon who is genuinely scary -- not to mention more groundwork for the original "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

Thorin's company sets out on a perilous quest through Mirkwood, where they encounter the spooky skin-changer Beorn (Mikael Persbrandt), Azog's orcs and an infestation of spiders. But the most dangerous is the wood-elves led by the Elvenking Thranduil (Lee Pace), whom Bilbo (Martin Freeman) must free the imprisoned dwarves from.

Even worse, Gandalf isn't with them -- he must investigate the threat coming from Dol Guldur. First he ventures into death-trap graves in the fells, and then into the heart of the old fortress itself.

Meanwhile, the dwarves smuggline themselves into Laketown, with the help of the bowman Bard (Luke Evans). But Bard soon discovers their true mission, and believes that Thorin's (Richard Armitage) quest will rouse the dragon to kill them all. And when Bilbo is sent alone into the mountain, he will find that that may just happen...

If there is one word to describe the second "Hobbit" movie, it's "passionate." There are many scenes that brim over with powerful emotion -- moments of crushing despair, triumph, and a grinding sense of fear as Bilbo must grapple with a building-sized dragon who clearly is scaring him out of his little hobbit pants.

Seeing this only confirmed my fears and suspicions: The Hobbit trilogy will forever be, for me, linked to Star Wars Episodes I-II-III. There is undeniable know-how, great acting, amazing effects, but something is missing from this whole journey that is oh-so very much expected. A soul. As much as I tried to warm up to this second/first trilogy, this chapter simply stated that it was time for me to move on and let another generation appreciate it.

Where Jackson once made one movie per book, he now made three out of one... and the length is unbearable, almost as much as reading The Hobbit itself (yes I'm one of the few who didn't enjoy it). Much work was done in Desolation to try and give it a sense of urgency, of constant menace, but it merely plays like a second violin to the much superior The Two Towers.

So far, each movie seems to be the reflect of its LOTR counterpart and where Jackson's narrative once flew freely like the rain that has passed through the mountains, here it appears flat, uninterested and certainly uninspired. Delving into the very same character arcs and themes from LOTR, down to giving its leading dwarf the look of a diminutive Aragorn.

The Hobbit will be watched as a guilty pleasure for eye-candy and the likes. But for superb storytelling, impeccable acting, lyric special effects and more, LOTR is and alway will be MY trilogy. I cannot accept it as being part of LOTR.

love the movie, billbou is smarter the the others put together and with purier motives. the intro of the elves not what I expected but a very lively middle of the 3 part movie can't wait to see what the dragon does and how they destroy him.
