Not for the stanch Fan
If you are a follower of the lore that is, "The Lord of the Rings", and "The Hobbit" along with the idea that the sub stories should not be included into, nor mixed together then save your money and wait tell the movie comes out on DVD.
Basically what they have done is taken the Samarian short stories and added them into "The Hobbit" as filler. Both to tie the, "Lord of the Rings" movies together and link some of the sub plot of Middle Earth together. I will not go into detail. However, I feel that I wasted the 10 spot to sit in a theater for 3 hours.
They also changed some of the plotline, added a couple of characters and changed some of the baseline character behaviors to make the movie fit better. Not good. I would think that JRR Token would roll over in his grave.
However, if you go into the second Hobbit movie with the understanding that it will NOT strictly follow the plot, then enjoy the show.
