What a travesty - and I didn't even expect much from it. One redundant and overblown action scene after the other, interspersed with corny dialogue, burpy Jackson "humor" and stupid straying from the material. I liked the Lonely Mountain song - despite it being used and repeated as a theme about 20 times during the film - but the rest were surprisingly inferior to the songs from the old animated version of The Hobbit.
It felt like watching a Star Wars prequel spliced with the bad parts of LotR.
