Desolation of Smaug continues the journey of Bilbo, Gandalf and the dwarves towards reclaiming Erebor. As all adventure, there has to be obstacles. In this movie, they journey into dark forests, meet Elves and of course meet the infamous dragon Smaug.
I absolutely enjoyed this movie better than the first. I find the adventures more interesting and we get to meet more familiar characters from LOTR. The cinematography was of course impressive. CG looked real (at times I wonder are the Orcs CG or people in prosthetics). There's even a love story fitted into this and it was a bit endearing to have. Of course the ending was a cliffhanger to make us more interested in watching the next. Length at times felt a bit too long but maybe it's cuz I was tired from working. Go see it!
If you haven't watched the Hobbit. Get it from iTunes and Amazon
