  • But, oh, that dragon. I'd endure another slog through Middle-Earth just to spend more time with Smaug. show more

  • Results are all that matter, and the result here is that The Desolation of Smaug fails in almost every way, as a story, as an adventure, as a piece of art direction and as a visual spectacle. show more

  • My advice to "Hobbit" fans is not only to see this one, but to see it as I did, in 3-D projected at the normal rate of 24 frames per second. The film will also be shown in what's called High Frame Rate 3-D, at 48 frames a second, but that made the last installment look more like video than a regular movie. Smaug is scary enough without a turbo boost. show more

    If you don't enjoy this type of movie, I expect you wouldn't go,, but if you do,, above average. I enjoyed it.
