This is a far better extended edition then an unexpected journey's one.
Firstly, the design of the box is much better. The golden writing on the front is shiny rather then plain and the detail on the front and back pictures are good. When you take off the sleeve, there are some good pictures of the map of Erebor and Bilbo, Smaug and the Arkenstone.
Secondly, the extended scenes are worth nearly 27 minutes. AUJ's extended scenes were a mere 13 minutes that did not change the story whatsoever. The best scenes are perhaps the longest. After waking up at Beorn's house, Gandalf and Bilbo introduce themselves to Beorn and the dwarves follow in paris. This is a great scene because in the theatrical cut there was too little of Beorn. The next scene i loved was of more Mirkwood. Here we see the Company crossing the bridge and Thorin trying to kill a deer. The third and probably the best scene that was new is Gandalf meeting thrain (Thorin's dad) in Dol Goldur. Some of the scenes in the theatrical cut of Dol Goldur just had Gandalf, here you have Gandalf and thrain. This is emotional particularly when the scene ends.
Thirdly, the extras are even better. Nine hours of fun film making with some scenes devoted to the Battle of the Five Armies film.
In total, this is an extended edition fit to match the first two lord of the rings extended editions.
BTW, parents dont be pertubed by the 15 rating this has been given. The film itself is a 12 as it says on the actual disc and it is one of the appendices that has a 15 on the disc.

In the Blu-ray 3D Extended edition I have, the 3D is mostly very good and the effects are excellent, and all in glorious full HD. Smaug at the end was perhaps my favourite character out of several. But some viewers might think the original story has been padded out too much with extra detail added from some of Tolkien's other works. The extended version is worth having, as there are several bits that really should have been in the cinema release.

However, I just forgot all that and set aside a dark and rainy Sunday afternoon and evening when there was nothing on the TV and just enjoyed the action. It is amazing how many orcs etc can be hacked down by so few heroes...

There are nine hours of extras as well, far too many really; one could spend weeks trying to absorb all the info, and we've only just skated across it all, cherry picking items that seemed as if they might be interesting - and most of them actually were.

You do need to have watched Part 1 first, and then there is still the finale to come in Part 3 (this one not yet 3D).

The adventure continues, the dwarves have enlisted the help of their "burglar" - Bilbo Baggins
and set off to reclaim their home. Lots of adventures along the way, great visual effects, superb acting by
Ian Mckellen as Gandalf, Martin Freeman as Bilbo and Richard Armitage (North & South) and the rest of the cast.
We are introduced to Tauriel and learn how the Eye came into existance.
For me this film provided lots of answers to previous questions.
The sets, costumes, continuity were all seamless.
Smaug was depicted as he was in the book and the ending, well you'll need to watch the film for that part!

To the naysayers who criticise the film, its accuracy to the book, the length of the film, get a grip!
It's entertainment - a few hours when I can loose myself away from the realities of life and become immersed in a fantasy land full
of make-believe, dwarves, elves, orcs, good over bad, an escape back to the wonderful world of childhood adventures and fantasy.

So much in this needs repeat viewing. The first half of the film drags a little, and for kids would perhaps result in them losing interest after a while, however after an hour or so the special effects really make the film, and as soon as the dragon makes an appearance, then what we have is a movie that is a cut above all other movies of this genre. Gandalf of course holds the plot together, and Martin Freeman just about manages to keep to the plot, although seeming not as good as his performance in the first film perhaps. And a bit too much of Legolas, who seems too out of place, if he even belongs in this story at all. The special effects are better than the first film, but the first film is slightly better in that it keeps an even pace throughout.

It is a long time since I read any of Tolkien’s books, and I came to this having watched the first film, as well as the sequel Lord of the Rings trilogy. If, as with any film, you disregard the original source material and treat it on its own merits, then this is a very good sequel to the first film. The story, expanded in places, but still in keeping with the spirit of the original story, if not the fine detail – I’m sure I remember the Goblins as being less monstrous in the written version – takes us through Mirkwood, on to the Lake village, and finally into Dwarf city ‘under the mountain’. Meanwhile, Gandalf has gone off to investigate the tombs of the Nazgul, and to look into Dol Guldur, where a Shadow is walking…

This is a fast-moving adventure, despite being over two and a half hours long. I kept checking the elapsed time, just in case I was approaching a cliffhanger, only to find there was much more time to go. Note that the end credits take up ten minutes, so adjust your expectations accordingly. It really is an epic story told in an epic way.
