DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
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.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good This is a worthy follow-up to The Lord of the Rings, something fans have been awaiting for more than a decade.

Roger Ebert Full 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.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The third installment of the Night at the Museum franchise, Secret of the Tomb, is better than its predecessors, funnier and more adventurous,...

NY Post Full Review
Above Average Final ‘Hobbit' film is dwarfed by the others.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 102 moviegoers:
As fully expected, GREAT REVIEWS FROM ALL AGES, BOTH MALES AND FEMALES! Reviews just don't get much better than this.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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.
