Looks really good fun.. shame the CG looks really.... off putting. Would of liked to see more real make up like the first one and Smaug looks.... well.. urrr.. dodgy.

Cgi seemed fine to me and will no doubt be polished some more over the next few months. Looks like Jackson has had some fun with the barrel sequence - could be one of his best set-pieces.

Smaug looks great and I am sure his body will look even more awesome! This promises to top the first one!

I love the acting and the dialogue and the characters!

When did guys in make up and suits go out of fashion?

Way to much reliance on CG. But after the first, that shouldn't come as a surprise. And whoever that was who said Smaug looks like Donkey's wife from Shrek... you nailed it!

I hope so. I also hope that there will be LESS JOKING and MORE DANGER involved.

Too much (unfinished) CGI for my taste but hopefully post-production should sharpen those images up in time for the release date.

I was quite surprised to see Smaug in the trailer. I don't understand why they did that. You don't show your hand, your money shots in a trailer. That's the payoff, the most important enjoyment of watching the whole movie.

I think they made a big mistake.

I agree with the dude that made the Lucas comment. My major complaint is the amount that is filmed in front of greenscreen rather than on location or using sets. If you look at Episodes 2 and 3 the backgrounds look completely flat - it takes you out of the film and spoils the scene. This is what Jackson is doing with 'The Hobbit' series. It looks good on your first viewing but once you have time to watch it again you see the faults - you no longer believe in the world presented before you. Honestly, I was amazed by 'The Hobbit' on first viewing and on the second (Bluray) I felt like I was watching 'Sky Captain'. How can an older trilogy be perfect and the most recent get it so wrong? Sometimes old school is better!

Those will probably be finished shots!

So much of AUJ looked ropey that I don’t think this will be any different.

The perfect balance of practical/CG employed in TLotR seem like a distant, distant memory….

I do hope that giant dog thing whatever it was trying to bust the door down wasn't supposed to be Beorn,looks more like that dog from the early Harry Potter film than a giant bear.

SMAUG!! First time I have seen the snakey dragon fck n I think he looks good..I am hoping that it is not just the initial buzzz of seeing the scaly bastard for the first time!! I have to admit the CG eleves chasing the boys in the barrels looked shit and certain other bits were dodge but if that was Beorn trying to get in the door there will be trouble!! Still looking forward to it..roll on Dec!!

Is it just me or does Lee Pace's Elf look a lot like a cross between Viserys Targaryon (Game Of Thrones) & (Bobby Calisle's) Datak Tarr (Defiance) ?

Looks like it suffers from the same problems as the first film, too shiny with harry potterish cgi. Lotr trilogy world looked lived in

Agree. This new trilogy looks too much like Harry Potter, Narnia. The original trilogy looked real and magical.

The CGI where Legolas slides under the branch kooks absolutely terrible and very distracting. Too much reliance now on CGI, that was one of the major flaws with Return of the King, too many CGI scenes looked terrible.
