I never read the novel of "The Hobbit". My only past experience with it was from the 1977 animated movie, which I haven't seen in probably 20
That said, I enjoyed "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug". It was a decent movie with plenty of action. It was a bit drawn out in places like the
LOTR films were but still enjoyable. The digital effects and acting performances were good. And Benedict Cumberbatch's voice as Smaug was a bit
The only thing I didn't like was where they ended the movie. When Bilbo was on that ledge saying "What have we done?", I was thinking "Please
don't fade to black". And then, fade to black. Roll credits.
I really wanted the final battle with Smaug to go down in this film, leaving the third part open for the Dwarf king to rise in power and go mad,
leading to the major battle between the Dwarves, Elves and Humans.
