Meh...

Throughout the entirety of the Lord of the Rings, it grips you into a vice of splendid fantasy that you can't possibly escape. As for the Hobbit films, it at first introduces the world everyone knows quite well and leaves it, at the end, with unquenchable suspense. The second brought in more mystery and excitement only to leave it once again, at an impassable cliff hanger. The third and final film started with the destruction of Lake Town and you knew this was what you had been waiting for. But, then it became riddled with cliché after cliché. It eventually just became a waiting game for all the pieces to come together for the inevitable battle of the five armies. From the very beginning of the battle to the end, it was amazing. Then as the farewells and passings of characters came and went, the ending of the movie simply left you...empty. Like there was no resolve. I'm not sure if Bilbo's house being ransacked was part of the book, but it made the feeling of finally being back lost.

Love and Hate Situation

I saw the movie yesterday and I found myself in a love and hate situation. I thought the movie was missing suspense. It had alot of scenes that had nothing to do with the story and in some scenes they used alot of cheesy lines. I had a difficult experience with the ending. It wasn't the dramatic ending we all expected and are used too, in other words the ending was too soft. What I did like was the epic battle scenes that lived up to its title and the special effects and visual effects were amazing. I love the fact that even though the Elves Men and Dwarves fought together they never bonded, the hate between them remained. The only difference was they respected each other a little more. This helps me understand now why in the lord of the rings it was so difficult for the people of middle earth to united and fight Sauron. In the end I give it 3 stars out of 5 I would recommend kids to watch it only if they are with there parents or guardians only because the Orcs look freakishly scary

Best of the Hobbit films, still not up to the standard set by The Lord of the Rings though. Sorry Pete, lighting really doesn't strike twice.

I've never read the book, but I enjoyed it all the same. Fight scenes were great and story kept me intrigued. Didn't feel like 2 hours
