I really wanted to like this film...but I found it boring, overblown and overly dramatic. The worst of the three Hobbit movies. The fabricatyed scene and dialogue between Bard and Smaug was corny, predictabek a d childish...and the movie went downhill from there.

Good, but not the greatest.

I preordered my tickets, made my costumes, took the time off work, and braced myself to cry a river having to say goodbye to middle earth and certain characters. Instead, I walked out of the theater with a rather "Meh" disposition. It doesn't take much to make me cry, but I didn't even well up at the end. There were many plot holes, and a very unemotional ending. I was quite disappointed, but I still love it because it is the Tolkien universe. I hope that the extended edition fills in a lot.

The Battle of the Five Armies that underwhelmed!

I will start off by saying the second one was better. Only two or three dwarves had lines. The battle was a lackluster. Spent way to much time following the humans aftermath of city Smaug destroys. I still liked it to a degree but I can't tell if it is the nostalgia of the realm of middle earth or being a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings. Don't get me wrong there were some really cool aspects about this movie, just the disappointment of the five army battle was enough for me to only give it three stars.

Seemed a little drawn out at times, but overall the movie was very enjoyable and I would watch it again!
