Where to begin??
The second installment of The Hobbit was just what you would expect.
From beginning to end, this film has you on the edge of your seat as you follow the dwarves on their journey to steal back the Arkenstone from Smaug and take back their place in the mountain. Throughout their journey, old and new faces appear to lend the dwarves a hand from whatever trouble follows, usually a pack of ugly, angry orcs. The Desolation of Smaug was a fantastic film, packed full of action, adventure, all of your favorite heroes, old and new.
This was a great movie, definitely worth the couple of hours you need to set aside for it.
Needless to say, I am un-patiently waiting for the release of the third one!
