The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellan) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.(c) WB

My review: Once again, I was very impressed by the movie. The cartoon, in my opinion, falls utterly flat when compared to the impressiveness of Peter Jackson’s movie. Also, Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug is truly terrifying. However, I wasn’t too impressed with Orlando Bloom as Legolas (which was a shames, as I liked Legolas in the Lord of the Rings). Anyway, I was very impressed by this movie.

My recommendation: I highly recommend that you see this movie NOW!!!
