What were you going for Jackson?

I can applaud the cinematography! But the plot changes and dialogue overall was inexcusable half-hearted nonsense. Surely, there will be many awards for the high quality CGI & overall look of the trilogy, but none to great acts of performance. Chalk this series up as another box office hit. Wowing the general masses, but forsaking Tolkien & his beloved Middle-Earth. Take some tips from Bilbo, Jackson, a Baggins would never treat his company in a rude manner.

Very disappointed in this movie. Ruined the whole trilogy. Forced love stories, cheesy moments, terrible cgi. Dont go see this movie.

A terrible conclusion to an otherwise good series

The entire movie play like a clip show, jumping from battle to battle with no bridge in between. A large portion of the movie revolves around the people of lake-town and their involvement in the battle, but halfway through they are forgotten and we never see them again until the war is over. On top of that after a climatic battle between faction leaders, the war is presumed over and won, we don't SEE the war end, it just cuts to the aftermath even though the war was still in full swing after the faction leader fight. Overall, it was more like a LotR Fight Scene clip show.

If it Ain't Broke,,,,,

If you liked the changes and additions from the first two parts of this trilogy you'll like it. Cinematically it was great, but the constant deviations from the book leave me feeling deceived and the money-grab of making it 3 movies cheapens the overall experience. This serves as a great example of something being fixed that was not broken.
