Extended version of the second of three epic instalments in director Peter Jackson's 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...

THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES as Bilbo Baggins, the Wizard Gandalf and 13 Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, journey to reclaim the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. As they head East, they encounter the skin-changer Beorn and giant spiders in the treacherous forest, Mirkwood. Escaping capture by Wood-elves, they travel to Lake-town and finally the Lonely Mountain, where they face their greatest danger – a terrifying creature that will test their courage, their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself – the Dragon Smaug.

Other scenes that were cut include a much longer trek through Mirkwood. with the sickly magic in the air affecting the dwarves much more strongly, a scene of the dwarves crossing Mirkwood's enchanted river, with Bombur falling in, additional stuff in Lake-town (showing the town's discontent with the Master and his thugs), and most significantly, a change to Gandalf's side-quest to Dol Guldur. In this version, Gandalf runs into Thrain, Thorin's father, in Dol Guldur, and the two attempt to escape together.
The Desolation of Smaug is sure to satisfy those who thought the first installment dragged its feet. The action is none like we've seen in any middle-earth installment. The visual effects are much improved, the pace is seamless, and the danger is ever more present. Yet through it all, Bilbo and the company's journey to reclaim the Lonely Mountain is not forgotten as the driving force of this tale.
Fully loaded with goodies – extended scenes, in 2 and 3D version, commentaries, and, and, and. What more can I say – a fully loaded version with all the bells and whistles – just as it should be. As a regular+ (I like my home cinema, I enjoy the multi speaker setup and I like HD on a projector screen) user I am happy with it – I don’t mind for the nice box and gadgets. Though for a hard core collector I would suggest and even more loaded version with statues and what not to make the experience even more enjoyable. Overall – very happy with the purchase.
Very impressed with this film.
I watched the ring trilogy recently having watched them years ago and enjoyed each of those over again.
Then I watched 'An Unexpected Journey', for the first time, I liked that very much.
Now this second film of 'The Hobbit' trilogy and what a delight it is.
Loads of monsters and scary beings.
I think of all five films so far this, for me, is the best.
I have the 'Five Armies' left to see, they are all good fun, but this one held me from start to finish.
Please don't watch it separately from the first film.
They lead on to each other.
Treat yourself to all three, I am really looking forward to the last one, I don't think it will disappoint.
