4D — it news. Had not the subject was only a short demo movies, then — 160 minutes mode 4D. +48 frames per minute. In short, all the best can squeeze out of himself a modern cinema.

Impressions: 4D greatly hinders the view. Experience movie depend on how deep you are immersed in him. For this purpose it is desirable to forget about all around. When you shake the chair is hard to do. Chair it wobbles on you blowing out tubes splashing water. Supposed to be even smells. Well, I'm ready to snuff sobachatiny, which should strike from Varga, or putrid smell from them to graze. But no. Clear aroma-the effect was, when Bilbo climbed to review oak murkwood. Somehow the smell was not leaves or something is there, and some lady's powder.

Here with the logic of 4D effects hard to understand. Well, if 1 screen of which there are abrupt changes of body position in space. Then the chair it is clear that work. You like "feel them". When the screen 5, 10 of moving bodies, the chair shaking for some of his logic to understand it, you only need about this to think. There is fighting the Orc and elf — who must shake, for an Orc or an elf?

The clearest trend was felt when the camera produced "circled" — the chair was reproduced movement. So, we should feel the camera?


About the slowness, the plot muddles and etc. say so, as a common place to skip.

All this story Tauriel... Women in history is not was yay. The appearance of the female line in b-ve cases can ruin what you want. But is there another major blasphemy, and little noticed. The story of Beren and Luciani was already scandal the time for a couple of thousand years before — but Beren was a person. About that elfici copulated with the dwarves... It's only Sauron could to invent.

Excessive heroism in the battle of all "our" (elves, Bilbo, dwarves, mages) with any "Germans" (orcs, trolls, again orcs-orcs, spiders, and finally a dragon) diminishes the heroism at all. Well that hero that you're blithely waving in all directions, knowing that you all nobody may even scratch? LEGO-elf fells dozens of orcs. Could would hundreds — the harder it would be. as the trolls in part 1, Smaug in the 2 not might even hurt the dwarf running for half an hour.

Dialogue with the captive Orc. Elf: "These 13 the gnomes..." Ork (gleefully): "They are TWELVE!! I put into one of the Morgul arrow. Hahaha" — excellent, this put a whole platoon of personnel.

Bilbo did not once the miracle demonstrates the "lightsaber". It is it backhand, one hand, fingers puts the sword — he stuck on the hilt in the skull of a Warg, in chitinous carapace of the spiders.

Not to belabor the point and list all of similar physical nonsense. Still only one will allow themselves — about the "flying head". A severed head here fly all the time around. Prize N1 gets the head of the Orc planted with boats LEGO, standing on the balcony, just CUT it off on the fly two knife.

Let the action Director — ax the goose. Ready to lay, though not a very large sum it an AXE, goose-neck from the first hit not severed.

Yes, a lot say something about fights. Well and more particularly and is not about what...

Paradox. Although many of the scenes thought out, tight, inflated, false excellent Novella — a meeting with Beorna — poher in the root. I really was interested in how beorna show. Not have shown almost. The comic scene of the appearance of the dwarves at the two are thrown out, stay in the guests lubricated. I think not accidentally similar in the scale of the character — Tom Bombadil — from "the Lord" just threw. Difficult show in the simplicity and greatness...

And finally, there is one scene that I liked unreservedly. Sauron. It phenomenon. Just before this, I think in the speeches of the Orc, the value of Sauron, as original transcendent evil is clearly exaggerated. Sophisticated connoisseurs know that evil — Morgoth — was defeated, and rasoplast thrown for all the real places forever. Sauron Gorthaur was one of his servants, though, and close — largest of small devils. But with a devil to meet — hard times... I Liked it phenomenon. Without unnecessary special effects, no banter, figuratively and much — could would show Murnau or Fritz lang, talking about the essence of evil. The Ghost of devil floods, showing that its Central — only the Ghost of a demon, in the center of which is the Ghost of a demon, and so to infinity all star eons. Evil — it is empty, deceptive, fixated itself on its own, but this is not less destructive and merciless. The slightest shapkozakidatelstva attitude, pride in the spirit of "well, I-it will not take" — you are gone. When faced with direct temptation of evil, each of we would gone, infa 100%. In fact the miracle of the hobbit Frodo that he did. Because it was small, weak and the exploits, 100%, least suitable.

Before us the second part of the trilogy of the legendary Peter Jackson's "the Hobbit". I must say that movie I didn't just like it, it I was captivated. That nothing and no one not forget I in my review of walk through the main component of this film.

Plot. Given the substantial duration of the film I was afraid to see a bunch of overextended scenes and don't need characters, thank God that my fears are not justified. The plot is very dynamic in two hours I have not seen any one extra or after roughly drawn out episode. All characters in their seats and are quite a subject load.

Actors characters. Acting has always been a hallmark of the "Lord of the rings" and"Hobbit" to him not inferior.

Stop at long known characters I will not. Gandalf, Thorin, Bilbo and the company also charismatic interesting as in the first part. I think I'll stop new characters.

Evangeline Lily (Tauriel)- the actress really suits the image of the elf with the fighting character. Hope this role will allow it finally out of the eternal image of Kate from the series "Stay alive".

Orlando bloom (Legolas)- the Appearance of this character stronger ties "the Hobbit" to"Lord of the rings" and it's wonderful. Curious to see what was Legolas to the emergence of the fellowship of the ring. In General, according to the film is littered with many little things that revive memories  Lord of the rings and this is the highlight tape.

Lee pace (Thranduil)- king of the wood elves. In Elvish calm, but haughty and proud, as the worst representatives of human rulers.

Luke Evans (Bard the Bowman)- also played a role.

Visual effects. Here they are in abundance. Giant spiders, orcs, giants, werewolves and many other things, as the icing on the cake sits Smaug - the most realistic and spectacular dragon in movie history. And all this visual feast is uniformly distributed on the whole film.

art Director. Amazing work. The scenery is just magical. The Palace of Thranduil, Liholesie, lake-town and Erebor finally all it looks fascinating. Dan henna on my opinion deserved an Oscar for their outstanding work.

camera. My applause Andrew Lesnie. I have not seen. Filigree work, with no difference dynamic battle scene or gorgeous views of New Zealand, all done in many ways.

Music. On my opinion Howard shore just wrote a great soundtrack that perfectly underscores the emotional content of the film.

And in the end a few words about the 3D. I quite often watched movies in this format, but here I felt the first time a full immersion in the film.

PS looking forward to complete this elegant history

It seems that the peak in collaboration with Director Peter Jackson with creativity of John. R. R. Tolkien have long gone, I want to see the highest point of their skills — he will have to look around already ago. And this despite the not released, obviously, the final part of this multi-year franchise, which will be premiered in the end of this year.

Dedicated fans of the Lord of the rings Hobbit you say that here , but for the majority of the gray mass picture "the Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug" is a real deja vu. Losing time, the logical chain of all events at least the first part of the trilogy, the Hobbit not alone and "Lord", many hard will enter in the swing of things again, fortunately, the timing of art Director Peter Jackson allows such a relaxation, and over time, the attitude of viewing will turn in desired fashion.

In fact, in addition to connected narrative history is nothing new, there was initially almost like a werewolf only bear a new character, fighting gnomes along with elves against a pack of orcs, and in the end hero Martin Freeman Golden Kingdom spoke with a giant dragon. Between this all a lot of walk, the same unnecessary conversations, perhaps if it would be seen for the first time, or you a year nurtured the idea to see the second part of the trilogy — the uniquely, such skepticism as let myself I, you will not suffer.

But if we consider more and spectators who just "wedged" in the adventure of our little heroes, then there's probably a list of questions to the writer at they will a few sheets of paper. The however, what is not take Peter Jackson — his skill in the frame, whether it is kind shooting, or the drawing CGS. So waiting for this movie — all and wanted to, but for the rest — depends on your movie tastes.
