This was a pretty good movie, and they went way off the path of the book in this one. I was a little upset at how small a part Beorn played, but I suppose he doesn’t really fit in too much to the rest of the story, or the Middle Earth mythos. I hope they still have him as one of the epic fighters in the final battle sequence. I really like the parts they added in with Gandalf, as it is really cool to see a lot more of something that was only vaguely referred to in the book. I went with Jeff and his friends, and enjoyed the experience.
