Watch The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug…recut by Honest Trailers

Refresh your memory of the flaws of the second Hobbit movie before you see the finale


The final film in The Hobbit trilogy came out last Friday, and sees Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and his team of dwarves finally reach the end of their epic quest. Yet after a year’s gap many cinema-goers might need a reminder of what happened in the second instalment. After all, these films are pretty long.

Fortunately, the Honest Trailers team – who like to point out the flaws in popular movies – have out together their own take on The Hobbit trilogy’s second film The Desolation of Smaug to refresh your memory…or put you off going entirely.

So sit back and enjoy more slow walking, New Zealand’s most scenic green-screens and flashbacks galore before you head to the cinema that one last time. 

Or in the words of the Honest Trailer team: two down, one to go…


The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is in cinemas now
