As I said, there are definitely things to like - certainly everything looks great apart from too much CGI, and I do like the portrayal of the dwarves quite a bit. Overall though, I think the additions are largely just bad decisions - we don't need ninety minutes of the Legolas Ginsu Stunt Show or the next installment of The Dwarven Bachelor.

Worse than that though is the minimal screen time given to the bits that actually happened in the book - Beorn, Mirkwood, the Spiders, Bilbo in general. I feel like mood and characterization got kind of lost in the desire to make cool monsters and over the top CGI action sequences.
