I absolutely LOVED this movie, as I have been looking forward to journeying through Middle Earth once more... In my opinion, they actually made "The Hobbit", which I had thought light-weight compared to LotR, into a heroic epic that did justice to Tolkien's later development of Middle Earth. I had always loved Thorin best out of "The Hobbit" book, but he was even more heroic in the film - he was the dwarf Aragorn-equivalent, breaking the stereotype of dwarves being essentially comic characters. I also really appreciated the Necromancer arc, as it ties Tolkien's later decision for the Necromancer to be Sauron with the Hobbit book, when he hadn't yet decided it. The scenery was OUTSTANDING and the concept art mindblowing. I loved every second.
