4.0 out of 5 stars The Desolation of Smaug, 19 April 2014
By 
This review is from: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
I haven't actually brought this DVD yet. I have been to the cinema on the day of release because as with LOTR it is a family event now. It is a stunning looking film there is no doubt about it. Beautiful to watch but I shall buy when all three come out together. It is not a patch on LOTR where I have brought all three theatrical and extended versions for my DVD collection and watching it is still a pleasure.

I agree with the previous comments. The Hobbit was at most a two film franchise. The Desolation of Smaug is slow and long winded because there was not enough material there. The abrupt ending was met with loud tutting in the cinema. I feel Peter Jackson was pushed into making three films by greedy film studio bosses. Jackson is a true fan of Tolkien and I cannot believe he is completely happy with these films.

However,that being said, god willing the family and I will queue for the third film in December because the visual beauty of it cannot be denied.
