Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson returns to Middle-earth with the final of three films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's enduring masterpiece. Set in Middle-earth 60 years before the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy, the adventure follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of dwarves on a journey into wild, treacherous lands swarming with beasts of every ilk. After reaching Erebor and encountering the dragon Smaug, Five Armies assemble for an epic battle that could decide the future of all in Middle-earth.
Witness the defining chapter of the Middle-Earth saga. Immediately after the events of The Desolation of Smaug, Bilbo and the dwarves try to defend Erebor's mountain of treasure from others who claim it: the men of the ruined Laketown and the elves of Mirkwood. Meanwhile an army of Orcs led by Azog the Defiler is marching on Erebor, fueled by the rise of the dark lord Sauron. Dwarves, elves and men must unite, and the hope for Middle-Earth falls into Bilbo's hands.. The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies Wiki
“Biology-Affirming” does not quite translate as “Life-Affirming”. These films had to involve some grit and fire, but did not have to include such incongruous — thus intrusive — tripe as was put in . . . more or less with a crowbar . . . per agenda for (how lovely) branding these films as Good Family Fun For All; how very mod!! Such a Low “humor” is neither Tolkien nor, in any era, wisdom. The casting and acting for Gandalf, Bilbo, and Friends? Sublime. The treatment of Bilbo’s pity for Gollum is no less than celestial; such respect for kindness is crucial to Tolkien Books AND Films. Four stars here, for any or for all of these Hobbit films, in either Version; for further comments from me (if any are at all wanted), please see Reviews as via “The Desolation of Smaug” in the Extended Edition; for still more of my comments on Hobbit films, please see Reviews as via the Extended “Unexpected Journey” . . . and thank you!
I thought the movie as a whole ended okay. I was sort of disappointed when thorn died though. Kind of unfair if you really think about it.

Great movie one of the best, if you ask me. Let me clarify... I saw one person who said the Arkenstone was not in the original novel. Obviously he did not read the whole novel. Also, he mentioned Legolas. True Legolas was not in the novel, but that doesn’t matter. Legolas is from the same kingdom that fought at the battle of five armies. It would make sense for him to have been there. Also, Azog is a character in the canon, but in canon he was killed in Moria. His son, Bolg, was in the battle. To me, that is an easily overlooked detail, however, and I definitely won’t let that ruin the movie. Also I found on person who said they wanted the movie translated in Arabic. 😁😆😂🤣🙄
Yeah baby! This epic film is...well...epic! This is just as good as the first movie and maybe even better! Btw: this movie is just as scary for kids as the first movie!
This movie is great, fun, exciting, entertaining, action packed, adventure, and awesome. I love all of the characters in this movie. It is one of my all time favorite movies ever.
It is one of the most epic battles in cinematic history. Battle of the Five Armies is a great movie and a great conclusion to an awesome film series. .
It's worth the watch. It ties in very well with The Fellowship of the Ring. One last goodbye to Middle-earth.
This movie is both an epic and a great conclusion to the Hobbit trilogy.
I will say the the Hobbit trilogy isn't like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but they are great movies to watch. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is an epic and worthy finale of the 3 Hobbit films.
The movie is so awesome I hope you make another movie like that
Such a timeless story inflated beyond recognition. If you love Tolkien, stay away. The CGI was really good, thanks to Weta, but that shouldn't be the Main talking point. Utterly disappointed.
It is a good movie but not at all like the book
c'est vraiment nul
Fine as an action flick. Horrible representation of the book. Tolkien fans will be fairly unimpressed. Does not measure up to Jackson's Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
This movie was made in a 4 wall warehouse with green screens. nothing seemed realistic unfortunately, film made of fantasy, yes and what we came to watch. But over the top CGl frothing at the mouth. i laughed at the petty wars and story lines.
The first Hobbit was Good, Everything after has no redeeming Value.
I love the LOTR trilogy and was happy they made the hobbit also. I finally watched the battle of five armies and I couldn't be happier with the movie. This is a one of the movies I'll treasure for a long time. Thank you for the entertainment.
This was a really disappointing end the LOR/Hobbit series. I always felt that the Hobbit should have been done in 2 films not 3 and the Battle of the Five Armies verified that for me. There simply was not enough content in the Hobbit story to justify three films. There was way too much reliance on CGI and not enough story.
This movie was epic. There is honestly no other word for it. I absolutely loved it, my favourite out of the Hobbit Trilogy! Thank you so much Peter Jackson! Spectacular finish to the Middle-earth saga!
They took one of my favourite childhood books and turned it into this... an 8+ hour "epic" with the sensitivities and sensibilites of a Duke Nukem video game. While films 1 and 2 of the "trilogy" did have some great moments, the charm, gentle warmth, and subtlety of the orginal Tolkein book are almost indiscernable in this third film. Bilbo's little segments of down-home truth and simple virtue look ridiculous when wedged between 3rd rate computer-generated violence and pig riding. I've only given it two stars because I do like action films. I can't give it more than that because I also have a deep respect for the integrity of good literature. I only wish Peter Jackson and his screenwriters did, too.
As far as story line goes this was sadly the weakest of the 3 hobbit movies. Having said that it should be noted that it does tie in well to the fellowship of the rings movie rather well. I was disappointed with the story line on the whole whilst I am sure the visual effects were amazing. The final five armies battle was way too long and I would personally would have preferred 2 movies of hobbit rather than 3 which I believe was the original intention. Four stars.
i have this but wheres the extended edition itunes???
The endless fighting against implausibly fragile orcs does get a bit tedious, but if you a fan of the stories and don’t mind the many embellishments then you’ll lap it up.
Talk about full on. Bulk action that looks awesome wrapped around an amazing plot. Will watch it again just to try and take it all in.
This film is an amazing conclusion to The Hobbit trilogy and the actors are great in their roles.
This was by far the weakest of this over-blown, stretched to paper thin franchise. If you enjoy 2 hours of stunts, GCI and unconvincing models, you’ll love this. If you are looking for characterisation, plot or coherent story-telling you’ll be sure to be disappointed. PS - is Martin Freeman capable of any acting range beyond Tim from The Office?
This is the best movie I have ever seen. I saw it in the cinemas and as soon as I got home pre ordered it. Got it the other day and have watched it 5 times already. Also watch the end it has an awesome song which ties in with the movie, it is called The Last Goodbye and it is by...... Billy Boyd aka Peregrin Took. 😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😝😝😝😝
I love lord of the rings so much but i love the hobbit even more, i could watch this 5 times a day and still love it, i like legolas ; )
What a great movie! Will never get sick watching the The Hobbit:)
