The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug is the next film in the Hobbit trilogy. I went and saw the movie in 2D the other day and thought I’d do a quick write-up on it.

It felt like the entire movie was rushed. Many of the scenes took place quickly and although they did flow well, it was at a very fast pace. There were a few sequences that were very cool, like the dark forest sequence, in which the characters were under the influence of this “unpure air”, causing drunk-like behavior. The action sequences in the movie were great, no complaints there, just your generic action scenes. The movie did end rather abruptly, but left this massive feeling of suspense, which was great.

I do recommend the movie if you liked the first one, but be prepared for an unsatisfying ending, paving the way for the third film.
