I think it kinda kills the pace of the original Tolkien book, as it changes a picaresque children's adventure novel in to a lesser version of Lord of the Rings.
Considering that Tolkien himself tried to do that (the rewrite of The Hobbit ended up being subtle, although the original plan was more ambitious. Plus, there's the Quest of Erebor), it's hard to entirely fault Jackson.
