Finally it´s over!! While it was better than the second one, it is still a bad one. The dialogues are bad, the monsters are bad, the story is bad. the only things worthy are Thorin, Bilbo and the dwarf with the Scottish accent lol And I am still mad about Strider´s mention, there was no need of that!

From the opening sequence it was a full throttle thrill to behold. Jackson goes all in and in my view , successfully ends on a rousing high note. Richard Armitage is a power house as Thorin as he descends into the gold sickness. Once again Freeman in his quiet way is Bilbo to perfection and Sir Ian , what can one say . His Gandalf is once again brilliant . Many quiet little moments and emotional elements . The battle scenes where amazing . Bravo Sir Peter , thank you for bringing Middle Earth to life one last time .

Peter Jackson delivers a brilliant conclusion to an underrated and under appreciated trilogy. He has transformed the source material into something truly epic that perfectly sets up his equally brilliant Lord Of The Rings trilogy. See it on the biggest screen possible, as the visuals are truely something to behold.

Zu Hause

Der schreckliche Krieg der fünf Heere, in Tolkiens Kinderbuch nimmt er ein Kapitel ein - In Jacksons Umsetzung ein Drittel seines gesamten Epos. Die Szenen sind eine Wucht und werden kräftig ausgedehnt, der Logik folgend, das Buch in drei Filme aufzugliedern. Wie aber gelangen wir von A nach B? Wie funktioniert die wahre Geschichte? Und ganz entscheidend: Kümmert uns das überhaupt? Welche Rolle spielt Bilbo Baggins (Beutlin) in dem Schlachtengetümmel überhaupt? Tolkiens Vorlage ist eine humorvolle Geschichte mit düsterem Hintergrund. Im Mittelpunkt selbst der spannendsten Szenen erleben wir Bilbo, der so häuslich ist und sich wundert, wie er in das ganze Schlamassel hinein geraten konnte. Nach einer gefühlten Ewigkeit kommt im Film der erste witzige Moment von Martin Freeman alias Bilbo. ...

Wannabe LOTR heavy on heroics and hubris.

For better or for worse, Peter Jackson made an entire TRILOGY of epic fantasy movies based off The Hobbit, a children's book that could easily been told in a quarter of that scale yet here we are with "Battle of the Five Armies". It's the shortest film of the entire franchise and is essentially one drawn out climax or a series of climaxes.
Those expecting a great deal of screentime from Smaug, the best realized character from this trilogy, will be sorely disappointed. But the movie remains entertaining with some well done battle sequences and visual spectacle to satisfy both hardcore fans and casual viewers alike. While a number of cgi shots are painfully obvious, I'm happy to see that the motion-capture effects for certain characters work very well.
The acting takes second place to ...

entertaining but so many faults with it

first of this is a very critical review but the movie is entertaining and most will enjoy it for 2 hours but its a disapointing end to a dssappointing trilogy this the 3rd in the trilogy and the last of the hobbit movies and lord of the rings it isn't. there are many many faults with this movie , peter jackson obviously didn't care as much this time.
its called battle of the 5 armies though i only counted a small army of elves a number of dwarfs and the orcs. and some farmers. whos the other 2 ? it starts with smaug the dragon and his attack on the city which comes to end with a wimper. then the movie starts with thorin the dwaft suffering with the gold fever and basically acting like smeagol did over the precious but with a serious not much to it attitude. meanwhile a army of elves ...
