What a boring film. I walked out before the end. Waste of money and its nothing like the book. Seen all the special effects before and done better than this tired cliche. The dialogue is hackneyed, the characters dull. Poor old Bilbo gets about 2 minutes of screentime and the rest is just bloat, running running and yet more chasing around aimlessly. Gandalf is weirdly diminished in this film he looks like a complete fool instead of a powerful and wise Istari. Bard the bland Robin Hood, Beorn blink and you miss him, Tauriel with the light from the lavatory back-lighting her 'miraculous healing' scene. LOL.
Basically its LOTR lite, very very lite. yawn.
