Overview

Peter Jackson takes cues from the appendices of THE LORD OF THE RINGS to expand New Line Cinema's Hobbit adaptation with this third film completing the epic tale of Bilbo Baggins, as played by Martin Freeman. The story opens to find the vengeful dragon Smaug (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch) decimating the peaceful hamlet of Laketown as Bilbo, Thorin (Richard Armitage) and the rest of the dwarves lay claim to the Lonely Mountain. But their celebration is short-lived as Thorin grows obsessed with finding the Arkenstone. Meanwhile, Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) Elrond (Hugo Weaving) and Saruman (Christopher Lee) battle the Nazgul in an attempt to free Gandalf (Ian McKellen), and get some unexpected help from eccentric wizard Radagast (Sylvester McCoy). Unfortunately for all involved the struggle has only just begun, because as armies of dwarves, elves, orcs, humans and goblins converge at the base of the Lonely Mountain, the fight for the future of Middle Earth begins.

Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "It's compelling stuff, reaping the rewards of characters built-up over two-and-a-bit movies..." - 12/01/2014 Total Film


"[I]t’s hard not to marvel at Jackson’s facility with these characters and this world, which he seems to know as well as John Ford knew his Monument Valley, and to which he here bids an elegiac adieu." - 12/01/2014 Variety


"[A] film that may be the most purely entertaining of any in the collection." - 12/01/2014 Hollywood Reporter


"As the title suggests, the business at hand is a mind-boggling Middle-earth mayhem fest that starts on a colossal scale and just keeps getting colossal-er..." - 12/15/2014 Chicago Sun-Times


"There are some wonderful sequences in BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES, and the attention to detail is breathtaking..." - 12/16/2014 RogerEbert.com


4 stars out of 5 -- "Jackson has crafted a grand old tale to do Tolkien proud, and with a single, simple bow in the final moments, one that offers a far cleaner send-off than RETURN OF THE KING ever did." - 12/05/2014 Empire


"[With] weeping vistas and scenes of stirring battle between humans, dwarves and elves on one side, and the goblinlike orcs on the other....These scenes dazzle the eye and quicken the pulse..." - 12/16/2014 Washington Post


3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's a richly satisfying finale to Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's novels." - 12/18/2014 USA Today


"With the actor's flare for making dark, brooding introspection magnetic, Thorin's battle with himself and his legacy is by far the film's most interesting fight." - 12/16/2014 Los Angeles Times


"It packs a giddy blast of childlike wonder and chin-in-your-lap awe." -- Grade: B - 12/25/2014 Entertainment Weekly


"The performances of Freeman, Armitage as Thorin, and Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey secure Jackson’s sprawling spectacle to visceral bedrock. Their ferocious commitment to moments of enmity and amity alike brings emotional release to the audience." - 12/17/2015 Film Comment
