'After by using the 'Ring of Power' to outsmart the Dragon 'Smaug' to help the Dwarfs reclaim Lonely Mountain
and indeed the wealth the Dragon had been guarding for many moons......however the -
Awakening the Dragon will bring terror on the town of Laketown.
Reclaiming 'Lonely Mountain' now no longer being guarded by 'Smaug' will attract the attention of the massive
armies of the 'ORCS' and 'WARGS' - the forces of the 'ELVES' 'MEN OF THE DALE' and 'THE DWARFS' will have to put
aside their differences if they are to thwart the advance of the evil-forces that approach.
Again the film as with the 'Lord of The Rings' series is blessed with stunning special-effects which grace the amazing
battle scenes in the film.
With the additional footage purchasing this, is well worth the expenditure.

* As you can see other than having the additional footage added from the theatrical version totalling in all around 20
minutes, there is the added extras as detailed above (around 11 hours of Special-Features) all adding up toward making
the purchase of 'THE EXTENDED VERSION' worthwhile surely.
As to the characterization, to be fair, Tolkein sets us up for an affectionate portrait of some of the thirteen, does he not? Some are fearsomely basic, others quaint, others young and very presentable; the two youngest, Fili and Kili, are taken a little further by Jackson and the screenplay so that Kili has a romance with a tomboy elf-maiden which I feel only adds to the attractiveness of films 2 and 3, and the two romantic parts are wonderfully well played. Legolas the elf dauphin is a sophisticated role in films 2 and 3, demanding a tolerant indulgence of this alarming romance between his sweetheart and her new dwarvish amour and it is beautifully understated by Orlando Bloom; Legolas is a credit to Elfland - his horn is indeed softly blowing.
Equally, even with a picture only a few minutes short of three hours, there is nothing to condemn about the portrayal of Thorin's 'madness' and his successful recovery from that. As to Bilbo Baggins himself, he has to be homely, principled and resourceful and this is admirably managed, even if he is used as a means of tying up all the loose ends in a slightly soapy way come the finish.
This leaves something to be said about the three wizards - well, Christopher Lee cannot be faulted; Sylvester McCoy is slightly Disney-like but who am I to say that might not be the way Radegast might be? Gandalf is homely rather than frightening but he is the glue McKellen uses to make the character bridge the yawning gap between Hobbiton and Erebor. Let it pass.
In the end, the film, like its two predecessors, is breathtakingly effective, full of strong emotion and purpose, and viewers who have not yet seen it should not hesitate. I saw the films in quick succession of a large screen with CRT projector, and home cinema sound, which was of course an advantage.
I found the love triangle that had been forced into the story irritating but otherwise the plot flowed well and the scenes were impressive and some very moving .
Nicely scripted and costumed,though perhaps Bilbo would have been better in something that seemed less like a 1940s dressing gown .Its laos nice to see certain of the themes or artifacts that re appear in Lord of the Rings ,appear first here and be given a context.
I thought the main characters where all acted extremely well and even several minor ones .
An interesting and pleasant movie
