The films opens with the flash back where gandalf advised thorin the need of burglar. This the second installment of The hobbit triology. The whole film series is based on the novel ‘The hobbit’ by J J Tolkien. we have already seen the previous installment.PeterJackson is just brilliant in manipulating the characters. The gripping Screenplay makes you can’t take your eyes off the screen. Editing is too good. CGI is top notch.The back ground score fits well with the movie.
Ian mac kellen is usually done a good job as gandalf, He justified his role. Martin freeman puts the audience in the fun mode especially in pre-climax with his deftness. Richard Armitage has emoted well as the greedy king. Orland bloom looks agile in his character. Peter jackson added few characters into the second installment. Luke evans did a pretty decent job.Benedict cumberbatch’s voice over for dragon smaug is amazing. The rest of the cast & crew have supported very well.
However, this is a must watch movie on this weekend unless you watched previous installment. Go and watch it.
