First the negative. Some of the dwarves looked more like men than dwarves. Azog looked like a character from a video game and the wargs were not as good as Two Towers. Some of the action scenes were a little over the top with the goblin chases. Didn't enjoy the mountain giants fighting and wish that had been left out entirely.
The good, everything else. The actors are older in real life yet had to appear younger. They pulled it off pretty well. The story is awesome and funny. I've never read the book. The music, acting, and dialogue was great. I just wish the dwarves all looked like dwarves. I'll see it again and certainly buy it on DVD. The ending was a real cliffhanger.
