Entertaining and great set up for next movie
, 6 Feb. 2014
This review is from: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + UV Copy]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I never liked lord of the rings movies,turned off halfway through ,just not into the whole middle earth world there set in.things like world of warcraft just dont appeal to me.i prefer fiction set in the real world such as harry potter,pure fiction could never happen but in the film world it can happen as harry is a normal boy on a normal street.not a dwarf surrounded by goblins and minotaurs whatever other creatures they have.so when hobbit was released i purely only seen it based on meeting sylvestor mccoy around him filming it and he saying how much fun it was so gave it a go.i loved the first one so much i searched weekly for the release of the second,never have i anticipated a film so much.fair enough it wasnt as good as the first,but desolation of smaug was still brilliant,just the first one was so good its impossible to be better.the second film is more story driven with obvious plot points being spelled put like people are stupid ,although theres still plenty of action compared to a standard film such as the jumping on barrels in the water,that sequence was worth the money on its own.the ending of the film is one of the most obvious set ups for a sequel in the entire history of cinema,but as a sequel was already known its hardly surprising.i did hear a few groans as it just randomly ended just as hobbit found of the town was in danger,clearly a clever trick to make people see the next one rather than have them as stand alone films ,although they are standalone from lord of the rings as i know a few people who hated or never seen lord of the rings yet all highly reccommended both hobbit films.also the first is mostly standalone if you have no intention to see any other film from hobbit its still enjoyable.
Imglad theres not been much moaning about the books as thats so annoying how people that dont understand movie making take sulks over scene changes and scene cuts in the book to movie transfer.the tagline based on the book rather than copies the book exact should give it away,but harry potter and twilight fans never let it rest how films ruined the books yet for majority of population who hadnt heard of the books nevermind read them,the films are perfect just like the hobbit films are.and should be watched by everyone who hates or hasnt seen lord of the rings as it seems to appeal to that group of people more than it appeals to current lord of the rings fans,even though a good film like this should appeal to everyone.
