John & Becky’s Movie Review Of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

hobbit2I took Conroy, Corban and Bianca to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock, CO to the Midnight showing on opening night a couple of weeks ago. The Fandango website at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug describes the movie as follows…

‘Having survived the first part of their unsettling journey, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and his companions (Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage) continue east. More dangers await them, including the skin-changer Beorn and the giant spiders of Milkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood Elves, Bilbo and the dwarves journey to Lake-town and, finally, to the Lonely Mountain, where they face the greatest danger of all: the fearsome dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch

The Review: Becky hated The Lord of the Rings and I couldn’t get her to go and see The Hobbit either, so she refused to see this movie.  I on the other hand love this series and so do the kids.  This movie was extremely well done and if you’re a fan of the book series or the first films than you should like this movie too.

The story is different than the books with an expansion of the evil White Orc, the Necromancer and also some new characters. There is a new female wood elf character that comes into play in this movie that the Director has taken some liberties with compared to the book.  This is the second movie in the trilogy and it’s an exciting movie with the giant spiders and other challenges that the Hobbit and the Dwarves face on their journey to the Lonely Mountain.  It’s very well done.

One of my favorite characters in this film is actually the great and evil dragon Smaug.  A friend of mine who saw the movie said, “I didn’t know the dragon could talk?”, which is really cool because you get to see the pride and arrogance of this massive creature. Smaug believes that he is invincible and I liked the way that they tied his eyes to the evil eye of the Necromancer and the villain in The Lord of the Rings.

If you’re a fan of science fiction, fantasy or The Lord of the Rings trilogy then you will surely like this movie.  If you’re like Becky and you don’t like these types of films than you should skip it.
