Wonderful character development!
Bad Acting and worse Bad Screenplay
The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one
.Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
I agree that this film didn't follow the Tolkien recipe, and many Tolkien-fans will be incredibly upset that what they read as a child didn't come to life in the cinema, but if people would throw away the fact that this is an adaption from The Hobbit, they would see that Peter Jackson still knows how to create movies. It was an overall exciting movie to watch.The biggest issue I had with the movie was the sheer amount of CGI. They knew that CGI would be way harder to make realistic with 48fps on the camera, but they still crammed a bunch of it into the film anyways. The Lord of the Rings managed to create absolutely astonishing shots of orcs by simply using makeup and practical effects. They just didn't at all look scary to me in this film. Still, I have to say that the dragon is some of the best CGI work I've seen in my entire life.
I grew up on Tolkien, I read every word of his I could get my hands on including the all the scraps and outlines of his mythologies of Middle-Earth released posthumously. For the most part I enjoyed the LOTR movies. I was on an international 24 flight to India and this "Hobbit" movie was available for viewing... I couldn't make it past the first 20 minutes, it was absolute insult to Tolkien's work.
Manny's Movie Musings: Part 2 of "The Hobbit" trilogy leaves part 1 in the dust with faster pacing, more interesting characters (Legolas, Galadriel, and Tauriel — played by Evangeline Lilly), more character development, better action sequences, and what we've all been waiting for the dragon Smaug in all his evil and crazed glory. Whereas "An Unexpected Journey" was like an old man wheezing his last breaths, "The Desolation Of Smaug" felt like a youngster getting his second wind during a race. My most memorable, movie moment of "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug" is the scene when Smaug is awakened and his gigantic, fearsome body is fully revealed. This movie suffers from the usual shenanigan found in the previous four Tolkien movie adaptations: characters who can kill dozens of enemies per battle and never seem to get harmed; they fall from great heights, get hit very hard by giant creatures, and they dust themselves off and keep fighting as if they were made of steel. Yes, these movies are fantasy, but there is a limit of how much b.s. people are willing to put up with.Mannysmemorablemoviemoments
I felt compelled to write a review after watching this amazing film. The Lord of the Rings sequels are great but seeing these Hobbit movies just amazes me to see how far CGI has come. If you're looking for a movie with plenty of action and amazing cinematography then look no further than The Hobbit trilogy. These films will keep you on the edge of your seat and it's a family friendly trilogy as well.
