I liked the Elves showing up -- it was dramatic and cinematic and made the early battle more interesting.
FWIW, I think there is a bit of book snobbery going on here. Books and movies are different -- what works in one doesn't necessarily work in the other. The fact that the films were made at all, and so well, is a testament to not only unbelievably long odds, but unspeakably hard work by the filmmakers on every level. It is possible to value both the books and movie separately for what they are without denigrating one to lift up the other.
