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.

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.

Admittedly better than the first film, and the first hour or so it had me thinking, Yes, Jacko's still got the magic. But once the company got to the Mountain it seriously started to drag and I found myself nodding off. Too much dialogue between the dragon and the hobbit, and then the dragon and the dwarves, too much pointless fire-breathing and chasing around - it all looked manufactured to fill an hour of screen time. The very acting started to look not only unconvincing, but absurd. I wanted to give this 4 or 5 stars, and would have but for the last hour.

I'm not such a Tolkien purist that I can't appreciate the decision to give established characters some new adventures, but what I can't understand is the unrelenting drabness of this film. Why use colour film at all - it could have been done in black and white, or rather sepia and white. Even Thranduil's halls were crude and dull - has all of the production team's imagination been used up?
What a waste of good acting, and the opportunity to create another absorbing Middle Earth with at least some beauty to make a contrast to the Desolation.

Not as extended as I had hoped. Extra scenes with Beorn the bear man are good and give his character a fairer screen time but other than that I was diappointed. I had hoped to see more of the Elven KIng's realm.

I'm Not writing my review on the movie itself as this is a more personal taste and by now when you buy this you should know whether it's a good or bad movie...I'm reviewing the disc itself and performance....The picture quality was top notch and pin sharp and the soundstaging and steering first class and if you have a sound surround system you will enjoy this very much...It came with the usual UV copy to download...I can reccomend this movie for sound and vision...Cheers

Though an improvement on the 1st film, it still doesn't grab you like the LOTR did, think this is to do with the fact it's all so familiar now and lost that awe factor.
More entertaining than the last one but still has too many unnecessary characters and a pointless diversion.
Doesn't take away the excellent directing and acting and overall look of the film but
fingers crossed for part 3 - think this would have worked better as 2 films though.
