2.0 out of 5 stars As tedious as the first hobbit movie, 13 Aug. 2014
This review is from: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
Has the same problems as the first Hobbit movie: no character or plot development, just tedious chasing and ludicrous fight scenes.
Peter Jackson has clearly not bothered to spend much time WRITING this before shooting. 13 dwarves & 1 hobbit take on armies of hulking orcs & come out unscathed except one gets an arrow in his leg - downright STUPID!
In the LOTR movies the writers went to great lengths to make clear the background & motivations of various characters (Gandalf feels inadequate to Saruman, Faramir desperate to impress his father, Wormtongue lusts after Eowin etc.) and how they shape events. - here you get to know or care NOTHING about this lot. The makers chose to expand to 3 movies not to add to the story but merely to add more DUMB action scenes and prolong the TEDIOUSNESS.
I guess the makers will still make their profits because of the LOTR legacy - but all this production/CGI has been WASTED.
