Adventure Fantasy - Like the previous two films and the
three Lord of the Rings films, this
is a fantasy action adventure based
on J.R.R. Tolkien's popular novels.
While not having any language and no
overly graphic violence, there are a
number of intense action scenes and
scary images that may upset young
children. Most families with pre-
teen children and up will find this
safe enough for the family.

Roger EbertFull Review Above Average 'The Desolation of Smaug,' part two in the trilogy, which this reviewer loved, is the strongest of the three films, because it never forgets that at the heart of it is a small creature who is overwhelmed by fear, and yet who must be brave anyway.

An epic conclusion the
adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard
Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves. The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the
vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having
unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenseless men, women and
children of Lake-town.
As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin
Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honor in his search for the legendary
Arkenstone. Unable to help Thorin see reason, Bilbo is driven to make a
desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead.
An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has sent
forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.
As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves
and Men must decide-unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his
life and the lives of his friends as five great armies go to war.
