Peter Jackson is back on form with this one with superb action sequences (the barrel chase down the river...WOW!) and with a lot more heart than the first.

The 161 min runtime initially put me off a little as these epics have been known to drag on a little but there was actually quite a lot of action and a bit of suspense, so you didn’t... More really notice the time until it’s all over.
Admittedly, The Desolation of Smaug has not fully restored my interest in The LOTR but it certainly has aroused it… my interest that is.
A solid 4/5 from me.Hide

It will take you on a realistic journey through forests,rivers and mountains until it becomes time to revisit the dragon Smaug.It is all totally believable and is now the main part of the movie.
Because of some of... More the visuals and the graphic fighting scenes,it may not be everybody's taste in a movie.
Enjoy the spectacle that this is.Hide

You don't even realize over two hours has gone by. It's action-packed, brilliant scenes, flawless CGI, and much character development. Martin Freeman was no doubt phenomenal as Bilbo in this film; he was endearing and hilarious.
Fantastic work from WETA in creating a perfect Smaug. Great film; definitely looking forward to the next one!

Peter you have done it again, far better than the first installment with a lot more action and fun.Smaug was awesomely terrifying, fearless and light up the cinema with a wow....
The movie was going such a fast past by the time that was over it didn't felt like a 3 hour film.
Highly recommend this roller coaster ride and definitely be back to watch it again in the cinema.
This will be rank my no1 film of the year and can't wait for the final installment in a year time...
