Cineworld customers post responses to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on Facebook and Twitter

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has stormed the UK box office, to date amassing a dragon's haul of £19 million. So what have Cineworld customers been saying about Peter Jackson's return to the majestic Middle-earth?

On Facebook, Kirsty posts, "Loved it - was especially great in 3D! ... It was visually amazing - another great film! Can't wait to see the next one!! Particularly love Ed Sheerans 'I See Fire' from the soundtrack." Glad you enjoyed it, Kirsty!

Mark says: "Excellent second instalment leaves you hanging at the end desperate for the last one, roll on next dec." Eagle-eyed Mark also spotted something... "A tiny cameo for Jackson at the start, did anyone else spot him?" Anyone else clap their eyes on the esteemed director? We'd love to hear from you!

Meanwhile over in the Twitter-verse, Liam Tweets, "SMAUG WAS AMAZING!!! IMAX spiders! Horrifying! 48fps was beautiful! Cheers." And finally, the fearsome Smaug himself (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) gets a rave reception from Perrard: "Now *that*, was a proper dragon... Fantastic film."
