- Quick review:
- Eight minutes shorter than its forebear, and at least eight minutes better - less twee, less chatty, more action, more Elvish. The second installment in Peter Jackson’s overblown three-part take on Tolkien’s children’s fantasy, about Bilbo Baggins and his epic quest in the company of a troop of dwarves. Elves and orcs and giant spiders, oh my! Not to mention the titular fire-breathing dragon, voiced -- in echo-chamber-style -- by Benedict Cumberbatch.
