Storyline

After successfully crossing over (and under) the Misty Mountains, Thorin and Company must seek aid from a powerful stranger before taking on the dangers of Mirkwood Forest--without their Wizard. If they reach the human settlement of Lake-town it will be time for the hobbit Bilbo Baggins to fulfill his contract with the dwarves. The party must complete the journey to Lonely Mountain and burglar Baggins must seek out the Secret Door that will give them access to the hoard of the dragon Smaug. And, where has Gandalf got off to? And what is his secret business to the south? Written by Otaku-sempai

Trivia

In the "Barrels out of Bond" sequence, there are two instances where Thorin throws a sword at Orcs to kill them, first, to protect Balin, when an Orc jumps at him from above, and second, to stop an Orc from attacking Legolas from behind. If you pause the movie at these times, you can see that in both instances, the sword he throws has the same design as Balin's sword, which he used in both movies, until was taken by the Wood Elves upon their capture in the forest.

Goofs

Robert Kazinsky, as Fili, can be seen in some shots of the film, most noticeably when the Dwarves are about to hit the first waterfall after escaping from Thranduil's. See more »

[They do so, and Bilbo does a head count]
Bofur: [pokes his head out] What do we do now?

Action Packed, Heartless
20 January 2014 | by vampireeggSee all my reviews

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug review: It contains lots of actions, lots of them. However, every time I watch LOTR, there are scenes where I always feel teary. The Hobbit feeds on the glory of the LOTR. Still, it's completely emotionless. Completely. The chill of "Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold" is now long gone, hobbit 2 is now just a hack and slash action movie, where you'll find yourself caring for nobody. The first movie was much better than this, which really had some emotional moments. Hobbit 2 destroyed even its predecessor. I earnestly hope Hobbit 3 keeps up with the spirit of the great Lord of the Rings. Middle earth is the land of dreams and fairy tales. Please let not ruin them with meaningless actions.
