The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies 
entertaining but so many faults with it
2.5/4 stars

first of this is a very critical review but the movie is entertaining and most will enjoy it for 2 hours but its a disapointing end to a dssappointing trilogy this the 3rd in the trilogy and the last of the hobbit movies and lord of the rings it isn't. there are many many faults with this movie , peter jackson obviously didn't care as much this time.
its called battle of the 5 armies though i only counted a small army of elves a number of dwarfs and the orcs. and some farmers. whos the other 2 ? it starts with smaug the dragon and his attack on the city which comes to end with a wimper. then the movie starts with thorin the dwaft suffering with the gold fever and basically acting like smeagol did over the precious but with a serious not much to it attitude. meanwhile a army of elves and farmers turn up to get some of whats owed to them for which he refuses causing war. meanwhile the orcs are on their way to kill them all and take erebor for them selves. which forces the dwafs and elves to stop and fight the orcs instead.
well first of i was waiting for the skirmish to end so it could build up to the big 5 army battle but it never happened. lord of the rings battles it is not. the orcs also were not scary like the lord films. most you see in battle are just figures in helmets they could of been anybody. the big trolls get killed so easy in this movie.
theres one scene where the troll waits for what seems ges to get killed, they really ddin't take much care with some of the scenes , especially that and a fight scene with legolas. also the voice effects are so over the top and over used.. and some of the visual effects are bad like some 70's movie., the scene with legolas jumping on th stones as they fall away and runs up are so poor. really they didnt take care with so many scenes for the budget id expect better. the big battle never really comes its more people fightning solo in places. where's the orcs when thorin is fightning. seriously so urealsitic none of it rings true.people just seem to pop up in places and are unchallenged. how long did that big orc hold nilly for after he stabbed him? not realistic and corny. a lot of charactersdidn't get to shine or do much . there is so many problems. also the ending was boring. the look of these hobbit movies overall is really cheap with the back scenery looking fake etc. big mistake by jackson, the main flaw with this movie its a big hoo harr about nothing there's no real story here.
saying all that its entertaining and worth watching you will enjoy it while it plays but feel empty afterwards. as its all a big deal over nothing. i think lord of the rings is a classic movie trilogy and these look and feel like pretenders or cheap copycats. its just not in the same league. after watching this i need to watch lor dof the rings to remind myself how good peter jackson was and forget these movies
