Watch The Hobbit 2 The Desolation of Smaug Online Eight minutes shorter than its bloated 149-minute predecessor, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’’ still feels like a five-hour slog as Peter Jackson continues mercilessly padding out J.R.R. Tolkien’s 300-page prequel to “The Lord of the Rings’’ as a trilogy to fill corporate coffers ($1 billion and counting for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’’).

There are probably enough moments to satisfy hard-core fans, but for the rest of us, this amounts to a “Star Wars: Episode II — The Revenge of the Sith’’ for the 21st century, a space-holding, empty-headed epic filled with characters and places (digital and otherwise) that are hard to keep straight, much less care about.

Martin Freeman is back as hobbit Bilbo Baggins, still trying to help Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and his dwarves (somewhat less annoying this time because they don’t sing) reclaim their kingdom of Erebor from the sleeping dragon Smaug.

I have a feeling that Smaug isn’t the only one who’s going to be napping in the time it takes them to get there. Obstacles include those still-boring orcs and a bunch of thoroughly unfrightening, 3D-friendly giant spiders (I guess that’s what the ratings board means by “intense family action violence’’).

Ultimately with one full movie remaining but just 47 pages of story to film, we’re left lamenting the Dwarf-like greed of those behind the scenes, wishing they’d consented to one great movie based on Tolkien’s short book, rather than three bloated blockbusters. The length of The Lord of the Rings forced Peter Jackson to cut back and privilege pace over tangential plotting; a decision that worked well cinematically. Here the reverse is true and the result is a movie that takes an age to watch while barely advancing the story. This maestro should use his wealth to buy himself a pair of scissors.

Like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire it is confident enough to leave the audience hanging having created enormous momentum and promising an epic confrontation ahead, even if it is slightly frustrating not to have a proper ending.

As such the picture plays like the incident-packed “second act” to a much bigger film, reason for both its strengths (endless incident and excitement) and its few frustrations."
