The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies

The Hobbit: The desolation of Smaug was a long movie titled “The Hobbit” which didn’t feature much of the titular hobbit. If this poster is any indication the concluding film in the series will be much the same.

It’s an awesome poster though.

Review: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug

Peter Jackson is an interesting film maker. A background in indie films, specifically indie horror films, he was raised to the top of the A-List when he successfully pulled off adapting J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy to the big screen. Those movies are not perfect by any stretch but the books were so rich and full of detail that the theatrical releases actually felt like they were lacking despite being a combined length of over 9 hours.

Now we’re on the second part of his adaptation of The Hobbit, the book that preceded the epic trilogy that was The Lord of the Rings. That book however is actually pretty short and while it has enough detail to serve the story’s purpose it has nowhere near the depth or scope that the later trilogy does.

Herein lies one of the problems with The Desolation of Smaug: You can’t turn a 300 page book into 9 hours of movie without padding the story, and Jackson has padded the story so much, and messed up the pacing so much, that while I don’t think it’s a bad film I also don’t think it’s a great one.
