Even though I formally thought "An Unexpected Journey" was a bit chipped off by quality from the original "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, due to its certain lack of seriousness the former Jackson Middle-Earth films had, I wasn't really disappointed by it. It was a different, more softer storyline, and under it had to have a different directorial approach. Going to see the second one, I had my worries if it's going to be on a dose less of action and excitement and more centered on the characters, which I always kind of felt myself, was a mistake for a purely adventure film, a road that many movies have taken on in sequels. Fortunately, it was nothing of a sort. "Desolation" gives a stronger adventure and enjoyment than the original Hobbit movie. Faster pace, beautiful sets, lovely score, costumes and most impressive CGI than ever before, with the comeback of one of the most beloved character of the original series, Legolas, will surely win over the audiences both fans of Tolkien's book and not, over the globe again this Christmas season. If anything, I'll definitely go catch it again. Thumbs up!
In the words of J.R. Tolkien - "Things that are good to have and days
that are good to spend are soon told about, and not much to listen to;
while things that are uncomfortable, palpitating and even gruesome, may
make a good tale, and take a deal of telling anyway"(The Hobbit,
Chapter 3, paragraph 26).
"The Desolation of Smaug" is sure to satisfy those who thought the first installment dragged its feet. From the first frame to the last, the movie is a thrilling achievement of Peter's. The action is none like we've seen in any middle-earth installment. The visual effects are much improved, the pace is seamless, and the danger is ever more present. Yet through it all, Bilbo and the company's journey to reclaim the Lonely Mountain is not forgotten as the driving force of this tale.
i won't call it just a movie . I would really thank peter Jackson, who
is keeping the legend alive and again after ten years you want to go to
the stores and read those novels again. PETER JACKSON did it in the
most beautiful manner like he did previously, without cutting down any
script or even the most least part of the novel and brought everything
again all up to the screen IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WAY!!!!! I am a big
fan of the franchise and it never turned me down . all the mythical
characters which you ever read in the novel when i saw them in the
first hobbit i was just stuck to my chair and was thinking that
seriously this is EARTH i am living in OR THE MIDDLE EARTH. seriously
this is best example of fantasy , where you just start flowing with the
a serious attempt done very nicely !!

The desolation of Smaug is the conclusion to the original Hobbit (2012). After seeing the original Hobbit I liked it even more than all the Lord of the Rings films. Its sequel is even better, more action, more adventure, more very entertaining scenes and more, much more! It surely comes close to being perfect and leaves us wanting more with the soon to come "The Hobbit, There and Back Again" which will be the final film of Peter Jacksons great re-imagining's of J. R. R. Tolkien's great books. I recommend you view this film and I defy you not to want to see "There and Back Again" straight after it. And so with no more to say on this brilliant film, I bid you farewell...
