Incredible film that follows the true story of the hijacking -- at least for the most part. The true "main character" of the hijacking is undoubtedly Muse, in real life; who has a deeper, emotional story, while Hank's performance of Phillips is greatly exaggerated in terms of bravery.
A huge step-up from the first film, with additions to the film that wasn't in the book which I'm pleased with; especially the scene between Gandalf and Sauron. Smaug however, is a whole new level of awesomeness. Expect to hear weeping audience in the third film.
