Robbie Collin is an honorable warrior of prose in the fresh and exciting “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, review.” Light a fire and kick back while you enjoy classic RC critique.

Understand that Smaug, Review is not a lightweight review. There is a heavy amount of Smaug, which has been carefully prepared for your literary needs.

Collin kicks off the piece by placing the reader in the scary desolation of the land, and guides them through the frightening backdrop that is the eight hour plus trilogy. The critic is valiant and mighty with his loyalty to J. R. R. Tolkien, and drawings of the critic on horseback will likely surface over review season.

Smaug, Review depicts the new land as a Peter Jackson playground where crotch jokes are accepted and encouraged, however amongst all the chopped off heads one may pause to appreciate the true beauty that is Middle Earth. Collin does a fantastic job of paying homage to visuals that will make LOTR geeks tremble with anticipation.

Collin gets real with some serious Bilbo talk at the end of Smaug, Review, and his commentary on the “chase over quest” theme is a tasty treat. The critic truly understand his audience, and proves this by including a Legend of Zelda reference that will surely be all the talk in movie forums.

Smaug, Review is a story of lightness and darkness, comedy, and sliced heads, and Robbie Collin allows one to feel comfortable with his gentle prose and crisp insight.  The critic brings the analysis with each paragraph, and delivers a fair review for all to enjoy.
