All fears that Peter Jackson is not the director he used to be will be quelled with THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG. In a boisterous return to form, Jackson churns out the best action-adventure movie of the year in a harmonious blend of his love of epic scale & choreographed action sequences with J. R. R. Tolkien’s fun & adventurous episodes from the book. Jackson does take many cinematic liberties with the source material, something that will not go down well with Tolkien-purists. This is not entirely detrimental to the movie though. In fact, this will satisfy all that complained about the seemingly languid pace and lack of action in AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY.
