Having reclaimed Erebor and vast treasure from the dragon Smaug, Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) sacrifices friendship and honor in seeking the Arkenstone, despite Smaug's fiery wrath and desperate attempts by the Hobbit Bilbo (Martin Freeman) to make him see reason. Meanwhile, Sauron sends legions of Orcs in a sneak attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

I like it.  I can't say that I super duper love it, but I like it very much that I am even willing to watch this again. The added characters have very special roles that make us feel giddy inside, but also wrench our hearts.  

All of the actors are very versatile and the script is well-written.  I could go on and on and on, but instead of writing my opinion(s), I will just l share some links:

I agree with most of the reviews(about 80%) above anyway.
