Falling Asleep Watching The Hobbit- The Desolation Of Smaug


 

The epic sequel  The Hobbit-The Desolation of Smaug was a majestic film to watch. Every frame had visual richness.   In some ways better than the first movie.  However, I fell asleep twice during the film.

First of all , it is a long movie and the plot did not capture my attention consistently during the film.  This is a marked difference from when I read the book and how my imagination was filled with the imagery and story presented in the written word. The book never lost my interest and I never fell asleep from it.

I did not feel empathy for the characters. The movie felt distant and I responded by taking a couple of naps.

There were couple of scenes with the Dragon that were highlights but not enough to carry the whole film.

Not really excited about the next movie.
