The extended scenes make a difference to the film, more than you'd think. It's nice to see classic book scenes (Gandalf's introduction of the dwarves to Beorn is straight from the pages of the Hobbit), though I understand why they were cut. In the case of that scene, there's no need for a recap.
Other scenes that were cut include a much longer trek through Mirkwood. with the sickly magic in the air affecting the dwarves much more strongly, a scene of the dwarves crossing Mirkwood's enchanted river, with Bombur falling in, additional stuff in Lake-town (showing the town's discontent with the Master and his thugs), and most significantly, a change to Gandalf's side-quest to Dol Guldur. In this version, Gandalf runs into Thrain, Thorin's father, in Dol Guldur, and the two attempt to escape together.

Its not too bad resally. Ok it looks like the scriptwriter ran out of ideas towards the end, but its still a good bit of fun, if a wee bit inventive with Tolkiens original ideas.

Classic tale that has transferred well to blu ray. Fan of the novels so I waited for the films to be released on Amazon. Amazing story.

The Hobbit films weren't as good as the LOTR ones but are most definitely worth a watch . Excellent effects throughout.

Better than the first Hobbit movie (which I still thought was brilliant) more action in this as you'd expect but ends on a cliffhanger so we will be renting the third film asap!
