The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug can best be summarized as a very good action movie but a very poor Tolkien adaptation. Overall, I really enjoyed it as a movie, would definitely see it again, and highly recommend it if you want to see a good action fantasy movie. If you're a devout Tolkienite, you'll find yourself incredibly frustrated to say the least. Tread with caution and take several very large grains of salt before it begins.
