Opening with a hiss and a roar, The Battle of the Five Armies wastes no time getting stuck into some serious dragon destruction. This spectacular and chilling sequence could serve as a climax to plenty of other films, but in commencing proceedings there's something immediate and confronting about it here. This drops the audience in at the deep end with no build up, let alone meandering prologue (unless you count the preceding pics).... More
As Smaug lays waste to Lake-town and the central dwarven posse find their leader under the increasing thrall of cursed gold, it's remarkable how inessential much of what's come before seems - unless my lack of confusion about who's who, what or where is unlikely testament to the storytelling seen in prior instalments.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Other than that, I enjoyed the movie. For me I found that keeping the music down to an acceptable level contributed to what was some brilliant dialog between the actors.(talking and body language).
Wonderful Cinematography, beautiful scenery and I guess my favourite part would have to be Laketown. What a... More spectacular opening, burst of energy, fiery displays, could not ask for a better opening than that.
Nothing negative to say about the actors, Everyone of them were brilliant in the characters that they portrayed included "Alfrid" and surprisingly many of the extras.
So many little details that caught my eye, Arkenstone, acorn, white gems, The ring, The quill in the inkpot, just so much to see especially inside Erebor.
I have already seen it about six times. Looking forward to the EE.Hide

Once Smaug is destroyed the only thing left is the battle of the five armies,and what a show this is.It is hard to tell who is fighting who and what for but there is enough dramatic moments for the viewer to become totally immersed in it.All that was then left to do was to tie in the trip home to finish the... More saga.Well done.Hide
