The action scenes were still a bit too over the top in some places, the same as they were in the first one when running away from the goblins.  But Smaug was just about perfect, and that's the important part

But the most surprising thing?
There are pugs in Middle Earth.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Personally I didn't like the ending. It's just some massive, unnessecary cliffhanger. I would have prefered it if the movie was closed in itself, with its subplot completely resolved, just like in Part 1. If it were me, I would have ended the movie when the fellowship the dwarves entered the mountain and Bilbo is told that he has to search for the arkenstone.

But otherwise, the movie was very enjoyable. I liked it more than Part 1, actually. It seemed a bit less goofy.

I agree about the cliffhanger being kinda rough, but I honestly would rather have it and Smaug than no Smaug at all.

well i'm pretty sure they could have made it into 2 movies rather than 3.

Or even one movie.


I liked Smaug, which is what I saw the movie for, the rest was pretty poo.

So much pointless filler. Oh man, Bilbo is finally going to meet Smaug! This would be a good time to see what Bard's family is up to! Wait, what?

Also the plan the dwarves had to deal with Smaug was aaaabsolutely preposterous.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

The man is a Legend.

And I can't wait for the movie.  Due to hanging out with multiple groups over the holidays I'll probably end up seeing it three times.

Saw the movie Monday night in a marathon of all three. It was amazing. Go see it. Non stop action. I was crying at the end. So much emotion.

The third part was great, make no mistake, but I can't help but feel it really should have been 2 movies, instead of three.

Also, I think that the death of Smaug was the most anticlimactic thing ever in the entirety of cinema history. They had us really wait an entire year for 15 minutes? Like, really really? And then Smaug literally dies on the first try? o_O

If memory serves, it was fairly anticlimactic in the book, too.  But I need to go back and read it.

They should've ended number 2 with smaugs death and started three with the laketown pilgrimage

Fun movie though, pity the only dwarves with character development are the ones that die
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Saw with the wife as it was a traction she had with her Grandma to see LotR. I kept it up for her with Hobbit. I to agree smug might as well have died at the end of part 2
