Middle-earth's got its mojo back. A huge improvement on the previous installment, this takes our adventurers into uncharted territory and...

Bilbo, as played by Freeman, suggests a sly-dog Dana Carvey without irony, and he is certainly overmatched, but that doesn't mean he's...

Smaug is different: a really good movie, superior to the first in that it brings its characters to rambunctious life.

The thematic elements are in place, the emotional tension is highly strung, and the action unfolds in a wave like the fire erupting from...

Despite suffering from middle-act wobbles, The Desolation Of Smaug nevertheless delivers rousing action, incredible visuals and one...

Sure, all the studios offer anymore are big, dumb adventure spectacles, but that's not a knock against the achievement of this one, which...

Even though “Smaug” moves at a faster pace than the first part of the journey, it feels overlong. I still feel this whole Hobbit tale could...

This robust, action-packed adventure benefits from a headier sense of forward momentum and a steady stream of 3D-enhanced thrills.

There are things to like about the second Hobbit film - the director's vision of Middle Earth is as beguiling as ever - but the bloating...

When it's not stalled on silly, it falls into slog territory.

Shame on Peter Jackson...
Peter Jackson has taken the HOBBIT and thrown in more Orcs and Battles than were written for All 3 Lord of the Rings Books. This is NOT a True or Honest Telling of J. R. R. Tolkiein's Original Book...
Though this episode of the series seems to drag just a hair in a couple spots, it is still very true to the book and very well played. If you're a Tolkein fan, I say it's a must go. I can't wait...
The Hobbit just got that much bigger!
I saw all three of the original motion pictures for LOTR in theaters, so needless to say I'm going to do the same for The Hobbit. The Hobbit movies focus on some small details that the original films...
Another Great Peter Jackson Movie!
Loved-Loved-Loved this movie - thought it would be too long, but with all the action, surprises and 'romance', it flew by and then was over! Definitely a big screen must see!...
it was awesome but a little long...
