I loved it. I went in with low expectations because I was expecting a more goofier lighthearted story like the book but I thought they got the balance just right. The only thing I didn't like as much was that the orcs were all fully cgi, it was more of a mild annoyance because I liked the make up fx in the original trilogy but the cgi was top quality. One thing I really liked as well was that we got more of a history on the dwarves which I felt were a bit under represented in the original films.
