There are already plenty of reviews for the actual film and chances are you know the story or saw the original cut at the cinema, so this is just a quick review of this extended edition which I've just watched in preparation for the the third extended installment released next month (exciting!).

I loved each of the extended editions of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and found each added considerably to the cinema cuts - they were never just little bits added on here and there and always had substantial extended or new scenes that helped immerse you in Tolkien's world even further - some of them it seemed criminal for them to have been left out of the original version. When the extended version of the Hobbit was released I was fairly disappointed at how little was added so it was great to see they had upped the stakes again on this second installment of the Hobbit when it came to the extended version. There is almost half an hour of new content with this edition and it really adds to an already pretty good film. I don't want to spoil any of the new scenes by going into more detail but the best for me were an extended journey through the beautifully realised Mirkwood and a great scene with Gandalf and Thrain, but there are lots of nice little extra touches and some of the relationships and characters feel far more developed and connected as a result - this is certainly worth the extra investment in time. There are then a ridiculous amount of other extras spread across the discs which I've only really made a small start on but enjoyed so far, so great value too.

For the extra content found here I would give it five stars easily - some of the scenes are really nice and are worth the extra run time, but I've given four stars for the main film as I still prefer the first 3 films to any in the Hobbit series.

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.

Just as Tolkien's books set in Middle Earth defined the modern fantasy genre in literature, these wonderful epic film adaptations of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings have set the bar for fantasy films. This extended edition DVD is worth the money. If you liked the cinema version of the film, 25 minutes of extra material just enhances the pleasure. There's some good stuff added here too; the reappearance of Thorin's long lost father, which helps flesh out the backstory, a longer scene between Kili and Tauriel which means their relationship makes a little more sense, and an expanded version of the journey through Mirkwood. I felt that all of the additional material added to the overall story, and as with the Lord of the Rings extended editions I preferred this to the cinema cut. It also makes it more of a treat at first viewing - almost like watching a new film rather than one you've seen already. Yes, it does make it longer, but I don't mind that - and it's spread over two DVDs which means there's a natural break in the middle, and I usually watch it in two parts.

As well as the extended film itself, there are a wealth of extras that will keep the geek in you happy for a very long time - nine hours in fact. There is a director's commentary - which is genuinely interesting and insightful - and then lots of 'making of' features. With a filming process as lengthy and involved as the one behind this film, this can't fail to be fascinating. The lengths that the team went to in order to make this the best film they could are quite remarkable and makes you watch it again with new eyes. It also helps you spot little details you may have missed.

If you love these films and want to immerse yourselves in them, this DVD is essential.
