For a film titled The Hobbit where was he for most of the film? Also, where was the charm and common decency of the book? This film seemed like a vehicle for the studios to show off their CGI wizardry. Bilbo and Balin were done well by the actors and Benedict Cumberbatch was good as Smaug. Of course the special effects were extraordinary but most of the rest of it felt flat. It was quite a let down after what the first movie which I felt was even better than the three Lord of the Rings movies. It just makes me feel like the studios and makers of the movies are conjurers of cheap tricks and not filmmakers.
