Product Description

The second of three epic instalments in director Peter Jackson's blockbuster prequel to 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. Set in Middle-Earth 60 years before events in 'The Lord of the Rings', the story follows the adventures of Hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), who, at the instigation of the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen), suddenly finds himself co-opted into joining a company of 13 Dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) to help reclaim the lost kingdom of the Lonely Mountain from the clutches of Smaug the dragon (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch). In this film, while Gandalf heads south on his own, Bilbo, Thorin and the Dwarves enter the treacherous Mirkwood Forest on their way to the mountain. When they reach Lake-town Bilbo will have to perform the role he was assigned at the start of the quest - to find a secret door that will lead him to the lair of the dragon...

Synopsis

The hobbit Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf and 13 dwarfs, led by Thorin Oakenshield, continue their journey to reclaim the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Along the way, they encounter the skin-changer Beorn; giant Spiders of Mirkwood; Wood-elves led by Legolas, Tauriel and King Thranduil; and a mysterious Man named Bard, who smuggles them into Lake-town. Finally reaching the Lonely Mountain, they face their greatest danger--the Dragon Smaug.

This is a far better extended edition then an unexpected journey's one.
Firstly, the design of the box is much better. The golden writing on the front is shiny rather then plain and the detail on the front and back pictures are good. When you take off the sleeve, there are some good pictures of the map of Erebor and Bilbo, Smaug and the Arkenstone.
Secondly, the extended scenes are worth nearly 27 minutes. AUJ's extended scenes were a mere 13 minutes that did not change the story whatsoever. The best scenes are perhaps the longest. After waking up at Beorn's house, Gandalf and Bilbo introduce themselves to Beorn and the dwarves follow in paris. This is a great scene because in the theatrical cut there was too little of Beorn. The next scene i loved was of more Mirkwood. Here we see the Company crossing the bridge and Thorin trying to kill a deer. The third and probably the best scene that was new is Gandalf meeting thrain (Thorin's dad) in Dol Goldur. Some of the scenes in the theatrical cut of Dol Goldur just had Gandalf, here you have Gandalf and thrain. This is emotional particularly when the scene ends.
Thirdly, the extras are even better. Nine hours of fun film making with some scenes devoted to the Battle of the Five Armies film.
In total, this is an extended edition fit to match the first two lord of the rings extended editions.
BTW, parents dont be pertubed by the 15 rating this has been given. The film itself is a 12 as it says on the actual disc and it is one of the appendices that has a 15 on the disc.

It is a long time since I read any of Tolkien’s books, and I came to this having watched the first film, as well as the sequel Lord of the Rings trilogy. If, as with any film, you disregard the original source material and treat it on its own merits, then this is a very good sequel to the first film. The story, expanded in places, but still in keeping with the spirit of the original story, if not the fine detail – I’m sure I remember the Goblins as being less monstrous in the written version – takes us through Mirkwood, on to the Lake village, and finally into Dwarf city ‘under the mountain’. Meanwhile, Gandalf has gone off to investigate the tombs of the Nazgul, and to look into Dol Guldur, where a Shadow is walking…

This is a fast-moving adventure, despite being over two and a half hours long. I kept checking the elapsed time, just in case I was approaching a cliffhanger, only to find there was much more time to go. Note that the end credits take up ten minutes, so adjust your expectations accordingly. It really is an epic story told in an epic way.

By tallpete33 TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 Dec. 2013
Format: DVD
With a Tolkein adaptation you know exactly what you are getting from Peter Jackson and that is definitely the case here. Lots of wizardy stuff, swordplay (and bow and arrow play), short people, ugly people, monsters, excellent CGI, stunning scenery and that musical score. That said, this is definitely one of the weaker Tolkien installments with the source material being stretched too thin here - a two part adaptation for the one volume book would have been more appropriate but you don't need Gandalf's wisdom to work out why the producers wanted a trilogy.

This one didn't really intrigue to be honest. The plot was pretty scant - way too much was made of the excellently produced but slightly silly dragon sequence and the same could be said of the dull injured dwarf storyline. How only one of them got injured in a battle with literally hundreds of Orcs stretched the credibility too far as well. That said, those battles were very well done with one particularly inspired and hilarious moment with the dwarf in the spinning barrel but the spiders were a bit déjà vu I'm afraid.

The other weak point for me is Martin Freeman as the lead. He looks the part but is limited in his acting abilities having peaked in The Office when he embedded Gareth's stapler in jelly. Alongside McKellen, the excellent ex-Spook Richard Armitage (Thorin) and Ken Stott (Balin) in the dwarf gang his limitations become all the more apparent. Elijah Wood was a cracking Frodo but Freeman comes up a bit short (pun intended) as a hobbit IMO.

Overall, a solid three stars and I will go see the third next December so see what the dragon gets up to but this one definitely lacked the scale and story of the previous films for me.
