    The impressions so far have been very positive, even from people who thought the first film was so-so. This movie apparently has a much better pace to it.

    If you read the book, you'd know there's going to be a lot of cool stuff in this one. Should be fun!

    Yeah this will really be the best out of the three because the third is just him going home and sauron returning. So little fights if any in it.

    Not true. There's still 1/3 of the book left for the last movie. You're forgetting something very important.

    But I agree that Desolation of Smaug will most likely be the most flavorful of the three movies.

    The critical reception seems to be about the same as the first movie. Good, but not great.

    I gave it a 10 on the Poll just cause there was no 9.5!!

    I'll watch it again in 2 days, but this time in IMAX!

    I'll give it an 8. Tempted to go a little lower.

    I just feel like there is so much filler crap that doesn't enhance the story. Its all bright and flashy with CGI everywhere. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it. I just feel like the simplicity that was in the LOTR was kinda lost here.

    I was ready to give this movie an 8/10, but the last 20 minutes were a disappointment.



    But all in all, I don't want to sound TOO negative. It's still an enjoyable movie overall, and I definitely think I'll enjoy it more in 2D.
