The moody visuals are impressive if not dull and the action sequences involving the monsters are something to get excited over, but the film as a whole has no characters to care about and no real story that matters.
The final installment to the Hobbit trilogy takes advantage of its sweeping spectacle with impressive visuals and (varying) intense battle sequences, but misses out on its heart with poor and cliched execution. The trilogy as a whole has fallen under a director's obsession and not his passion.
