I enjoyed the movie but is it just me... thinking the fight scenes were way overdone? Aside from all the other things mentioned the luck of the dwarves in the fight scenes was not only unbelieveable but just darn laughable. Why do movies have to one-up each other with more and more scenes of fires and destruction rather than common sense and believable drama? I hate to think we humans have decided we like the short scenes of action with all the sound bites because we truly do have a short attention span.
Wouldn't Radagast have been crazier if he had resembled a more common wizard while acting crazy? Elrond is a healer not an orc fighter, why was he first presented in the orc fighter role? Also... our new mount after the goat may just be an Elk...
No matter, I enjoyed the movie for what it is - a look at another person's mental image of The Hobbit. It did not match my own but it was still entertainment.
