In the Extended Cut, during the fight between Bolg and Legolas, Legolas thrusts a curved dagger through Bolg's left palm and out the back of his hand. Bolg pulls his hand away, leaving the blade embedded, then curls his fist, intending to use the portion protruding from the back of his hand against the elf. When the dagger goes in, the leading edge is clearly facing Bolg's forearm, and the back of the blade is closer to his fingers. Two shots later, the blade has reversed itself, so that the edge is facing the fingers (and into the blow he intends to throw). See more »

If you haven't read The Hobbit and/or if you like the first two movies: I envy you of sorts...
If someone had told me some years ago that I would consider walking out from a Tolkien movie opening night, I would have slapped them with a cod. Or a salmon. The Hobbit trilogy is crap.
It's little more than a long list of invented battles and love stories to attract a widest possible audience, as well as loads of idiotic storyline to make the story slide into the Lord of the Rings movies as smooth as an Elven ass.
I understand that some adaption is required from book to screen, but when dealing with a book more or less only surpassed by the Bible and the IKEA catalogue, one should tread carefully.
Do yourself a favor. Read the book. Let your mind be the big screen.
