    There is one thrilling, rib-tickling sequence in “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”: A group of dwarves, riding inside empty wine barrels over rushing rapids and waterfalls, fend off an attack by an army of orcs with the help of bow-and-arrow wielding elves.

The action is sprawling and comes at you from all angles — there’s so much happening, your eyes don’t know where to look — and director Peter Jackson throws in some terrific slapstick as a bonus, leavening the furious action with laughs. It’s a showstopper.
