Movie Review | The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
After the thrilling ending of The Unexpected Journey comes The Desolation of Smaug, the second installment of The Hobbit series. As the pack of dwarves continue their journey to the Lonely Mountain to reclaim their lost home, Bilbo Baggins falls deeper into the clutches of the Ring. The group must prepare for their encounter with the terrifying dragon, Smaug, who is guarding the mountain and its’ treasures. But it appears that other evils are at work, and it is unclear whether the ragtag team will defeat the dragon and restore hope, or perish at the claws of Smaug.
The Desolation of Smaug has been my favorite movie in the trilogy so far. I thought that all the scenes with Smaug in the mountain were terrifying and exciting. The special effects on the dragon looked pretty good too. All fans of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit should definitely watch this movie.
