The epic conclusion to the adventures of Bilbo Baggins. The dragon Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women, and children of Lake-town.

Not a bad movie. The battle and violence really picked up though. The Battle of the Five Armies wasn't as good as the first one, but better then the 2nd. READ THE BOOKS FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alas, this movie is an obscenity.
Peter Jackson, having crafted magnificent videos
of each book of the LOTR trilogy,
true to both the spirit and words of Tolkien’s monumental text,
chose to treat this prequel as mere buffoonish cartoon,
much like Disney’s animated versions of classic fairy tales.
Such a sad waste of this superb cast,
and a despicable bait-and-switch cheat to the viewers.
Far better to listen to the audiobook version by Rob Inglis.

I liked this Sci-Fi DVD. It is not appropriate for children. There is a lot of violence. I like the whole series. I like the whole series for "The Hobbit" and "The Lord Of The Rings". I recommend watching "The Hobbit" first.

***SPOILERS***
Bilbo Baggins and company enter the Battle of the Five Armies and go on to defeat the remaining enemies who were the orcs from the leader Azog and orcs and goblins from the leader Bolg. The other three armies who united together to destroy their enemies were men from Lake Town under their leader Bard, elves from Mirkwood from their leader Thranduil, and finally dwarves from Iron Hills under their leader Dain. It was a battle like none other before and there were many deaths. In the middle of the battle, the two evil armies were destroying the other three good armies when all of a sudden, the eagles came to their rescue and turned the tide in their favour

Bloated mess with characters that are forgotten and have so little screen time or so over the top with tons of screen time while being annoying.

The Hobbit trilogy is a movie that is confused about what type of movie that it wants to be. Is it a comedy? Adventure? Or an epic like Lord of the Rings. Sadly it has a bunch of these elements crammed together in a nonsensical mess.

Not true to the book which would have made this 1 or 2 movies not 3.

This is called The Battle of the Five Armies for a very, very good reason. The first 12 minutes have a LOT of storyline packed in, and then the battle just seems to go on and on. Still, it's a pretty cool conclusion to the trilogy. I HATE when awesome books or movies end!!! :( Legolas is well portrayed, not to mention he's also very nice. The poor guy! He ends up going and trying to save the dwarf who has fallen in love with the elf HE likes. (That love story! It is SO ridiculous! She's a foot and a half taller than him, for starters.) I wish there would have been a little less fighting, but it was a fairly good end to a worthwhile addition to Middle-Earth. Still trying to figure out if Thorin or Thranduil are equally bad, or if one is more annoying... Anyway, that's my opinionated view on a movie I still can't help but like - and kind of hate, it's so sad.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! READ AT YOUR PERIL!

(Still reading? Well, I warned you.)

Tauriel: [speaking to Thranduil, while crying over Kili's body] They want to bury him.
Thranduil: Yes.
Tauriel: If this is love, I do not want it. Take it from me, please. Why does it hurt so much?
Thranduil: Because it was real.
Tauriel: [cradles Kili's hand in hers and leans down to kiss him]

"I know that dwarves can be obstinate and pigheaded and difficult. And suspicious and secretive, with the worst manners you can possibly imagine. But they are also brave and kind, and loyal to a fault. I've grown very fond of them, and I would save them if I can." -Bilbo Baggins :)

"I'm going to kill that piece of filth"--Thorin Oakenshield

Bilbo: One day I'll remember. Remember everything that happened: the good, the bad, those who survived... and those that did not.

Gandalf: You are a very fine fellow, Mr Baggins, and I am very fond of you. But you are really just a little fellow, in a wide world.

Thorin: ... But the treasure in this mountain does not belong to the people of Laketown (spoke like dragon Smaug) ... This gold is ours. And ours alone. On my life, I will not part with a single coin. Not one piece of it.

If this is love, I don't want it. Take it away, please! Why does it hurt so much?

Violence: Quite a bit here. Orcs, elves, dwarves, men, every side loses quite a few here. Tauriel gets thrown around, we see several characters die.

Violence: Lots of it. Brutal killing. Brutal fighting. Not good for little kids. It's rated PG-13 for a reason.
