The Hobbit : The Desolation of Smaug
This movie The Hobbit : The Desolation of Smaug was a bit more of the same. I bit overindulged CGI action scenes that lasted for 20 minutes. I was a bit over the Spider fights and Orc chasing and wish more attention had been paid to the characters and their story, the story just seemed to be their to hold fight scene after fight scene together. Nothing seemed to have been done to make any of the characters likeable or vulnerable, they all seemed a bit wooden and all the CGI green screen action just seemed false to me.
I get that as a non lover of the stories I am not the target audience, but I did want to like it. I'd give it a 2/5, it was better than being bored at home on a rainy afternoon. The noodles I had afterwards were tasty.
