I thought that the film was absolutely fantastic but also i was left feeling a little disappointed at how much had been changed , at the start i was pleased because lines from the book had been used but after it stated that Thorin was late everything went a bit downhill from there i found my self thinking that didn't happen , he doesn't say that but he does and i also found myself slightly irritated that Galadriel was in the film it was a fantastic scene but she wasn't in the book and nazgul weren't mentioned in the book either and the necromancer was known about by all but wasn't realised to be sauron yet and the showdown with goblins and wargs didn't happen like that , thranduil wasnt involved in when smauge took over erebor and to finish it all off all that buisness with Thorin hating orcs more than most and refusing the elves help OH! and 1 more thing they werent hunted by Orcs till after they left the orcs lair and bilbo never considered leaving and just be clear here i think Peter Jackston strayed to far from the story and turned it into what he would've written instead of what Tolkien wrote!
