The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was somewhat of a surprise

5 second plot: The second part of the quest to reclaim the dwarf kingdom in the mountain. Our heroes run into unfriendly forest elves, are hunted down (fiercely) by the ugliest Orcs in town, and they meet the (probably) future dragon slayer. And they get to the lonely mountain. And meet up with Smaug.

5 second review: I didn't expect to be disappointed by this film. But I was. The dragon is cool, there is no question about that. But the inner circle relationships are confusing, the story takes strange turns simply for the visual effect, this visual effect is not as good as I expected and worst of all: what happened to all the fun? Aside from the barrel race, I didn't laugh at all.

IMDb score: 8,4/10
Our score: 5/10
