The Hobbit 3D: The Battle of the Five Armies

Peter Jackson's return to Middle-earth concludes in part three of his adaptation of The Hobbit. With Smaug the dragon terrorising the citizens of Lake-town and dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield under the thrall of cursed gold, Bilbo Baggins finds himself at the centre of a battle to decide the fate of Middle-earth.

Smaug’s airborne assault sends human survivors fleeing to the ruins of Dale, where they encounter Elvish forces amassing to take on Oakenshield and his dwarf comrades. As the forces of evil make their way to the field of battle an epic confrontation beckons, one that will set in motion the events of the The Lord of the Rings.

End of LoTR's trilogy (of seven films)

The Hobbit - Battle of the Five Armies The final in the 7 series from Tolken, and wow, what a finish, great start BANG right into it, then hummed along at a even level all the way through. Some laughs but mostly a down hill spiral, obviously if you liked the books you have an idea of whats to come, yet it still better on the big screen. Don't watch it at...

Jackson’s singular talent for massive-scale mayhem hasn’t deserted him, and the hour-long smackdown that crowns the film gives him ample opportunities to indulge it.

Having set the tone so definitively at the outset, each film delivered exactly what it promised.

The final stretch possesses a warm, amiable, sometimes rueful mood that proves ingratiating and manages to magnify the good and minimize the bad of the trilogy.
