unfaithful to tolkien and not better than the first one, this movie has nothing to do with the original story of the hobbit written by professor tolkien back in the days. Good CGI and excellent 3D, the screenplay is a little bit weak and some of the fight scenes (Legolas vs Bolg) were really boring, I prefer the first installment of the trilogy because is more faithful to tolkien and has some FanService made by peter jackson for the fans, and in this second movie there's no FanService at all , so I hope that the third one will be better and more faithful to tolkien.

TOP: Good things in the movie

*Smaug and his voice
*The Special effects And The 3D
*The Make Up and Costume Design
*The Sound Mixing
*The cinematography and art direction

TOP: Bad things in the movie

*Music (Score) was weak, I loved the music on AUJ
*The screenplay is not very good indeed
*All the things that are not original from Tolkien
*The adaptation of Beorn
*The love triangle between tauriel,legolas and kili

The second part of the hobbit its not better than the second part of the original lord of the rings trilogy, DOS is more like a fanfiction from peter jackson,very unfaithful to the original book of the hobbit and full of deviations on the story, DOS its not a bad movie at all, is good in his own way.
