This movie, is an abomination to all Tolkien fans and purists. The worst bit is the Azog thing, Azog is DEAD! Do you hear me, DEAD! He doesn't just resurrect and start hunting down Bilbo and Co. Talking about Orcs, ORCS DIDN'T FOLLOW BILBO AND OTHERS AT THEIR JOURNEY! The Orcs were just in their little nice nests eating stuff and procrastinating. And why did you put Tauriel who wasn't even in the book, in this movie? And what's with all that love triangle between Kili, Legolas and Tauriel? Why did you put that in? And Legolas? HE ISN'T EVEN IN THE BOOK! You could have just put him in like some other random elf there standing around doding nothing but you put him TO AN USELESS BARREL CHASING SCENE WITH ORCS WHO SOMEHOW GOT THROUGH MIRKWOOD? And TWO WEAK ELVES SOMEHOW get rid of ALL the Orcs ALL of them. (Except Azog of course because he is a baddy and he must not die until the final movie.)And Beorn too. When Bilbo and Co. invade his house not letting him in and him not knowing who they are he would have killed them without hesitating. And why the heck did you make Thranduil know where they were going? THAT WAS NOT IN THE BOOK! And the bit when there's that "awesome" action scene where Smaug gets covered in molten gold is just plain ridiculous and unneeded. Smaug knew they were in Erebor but he didn't chase them, they were hiding when Smaug went to Laketown and Bilbo and Co. didn't know that Smaug was gone until they went down to the treasure chamber. And then BLING the movie ends and this review ends too.
