Saw it in 3D and it was worth it IMO.
Eh I'd like to go see it again, but not in 3D. 3D was okay, but a little too distracting to me. With that being said, I enjoyed it. Smaug was an incredible villain. I'm thankful for more landscape shots in this second installment too.
I agree with others about the different plotlines. It just feels like there's too much going on in this film. I'd like to see it again before I go more in-depth about that. FWIW, I haven't read the books, but I loved the LotR trilogy films. Still like this installment. Good movie.
