 Rings!

I loved all of this movie, from the dragon to the heartfelt acting Martin Freeman was able to display. I especially loved Tauriel, and her controversial romance with Kili. I felt it added an emotional layer to both characters. I still feel that all of the orc CG is a little over the top with Bolg and Azog, and I feel that these characters should have been done with make up because they just did not look real to me. However, Smaug was perfect! Although I may be mistaken, I seem to remember him having four legs and two wings in the first film rather than the two wings two legs in this one. Another problem was Legolas' role, as it seemed to me that all he did was kill stuff!(which don't get me wrong, I like Legolas and Orlando Bloom). The best part about this movie besides Smaug was the pace, as the first film felt a bit slow and overdone, this movie was a roller coaster! I really liked it overall.
