Movie Review: The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

While The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug had a darker edge compared to its predecessor, which was lighter and too comic, this film still managed to capture the grandeur of the franchise. On a technical standpoint, everything was nothing short of brilliant. The cinematography was outstanding, the production values were top notch, and the action sequences were quite impressive. Plus, all the actors did a credible job. The screenplay was a bit weak though as it took a lot of time to really develop some major characters in a compelling way and there were a couple of unnecessary subplots. The pacing was also problematic as the story dragged a bit especially towards the end. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug could've been a lot better with a tighter editing, but other than that, this was great romp and a good set up for an interesting conclusion on both excitement and scale. 8
