The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug ~ Movie Review

The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug HFR 3D


Director: Peter Jackson
Cast includes: Martin Freeman, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Sir Ian McKellen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, Richard Armitage and Stephen Fry.

With the Lonely Mountain set firmly in their sights, the second part of this trilogy sees Bilbo and company move at a good pace through various exploits and adventures. The start of the film seems a little disjointed and isn't helped with the HFR 3D making some of the initial scenes feel as though you are just a little too close to the close-ups. But you are soon drawn into the magic of the story and the 3D comes into its own in the depths of the Mirkwood Forest and with the dragon, Smaug. There's a wonderful Christmas feel to this movie, like a pantomime and scary fair ground ride all rolled into one. Very entertaining and well worth the cinema ticket. A carrot crunching five out of five stars.
