The director, Peter Jackson, brings Smaug to life capturing the true essence of a cunning beast. Smaug is the highlight of the second film and is hailed as cinemas greatest dragon incarnation. The artistic rendition of this fiction beast is the pinnacle of Peter Jackson’s mythological creatures brought to life from J.R.R Tolkien’s collective works.
