Untold manpower, pixels, and money culminate in the gangbusters final installment. It can't redeem the useless tedium of the first two, which exist for gargantuan profits and structural necessity.

Well, at least there won't be another one for a while.

It's adequately visionary, it's routinely spectacular, it breathes fire and yet somehow feels room-temperature.

It plays out as if someone chucked a whole bunch of carefully detailed Warhammer figurines into a centrifuge -- goblins, goats, dwarfs, wizards and wolves bouncing off one another in waves of alternating tedium and punishment.

It's a big, bold, schizophrenic pageant that still manages to work on a surprising number of levels -- creative liberties and indulgences be damned.

Mindless CGI spectacle overpowers every aspect of Peter Jackson's concluding Tolkien adaptation; like the other installments of this lumbering trilogy, it's more tech-demo than movie.

Peter Jackson is a monumentally gifted world builder, but The Battle of the Five Armies is obese with dull characterisation yet skeletal when it comes to energy and narrative satisfaction. Tolkien's hot water bottle of a fairytale has been scorched.

It's a great, intimate story told by a fine actor, but it unfortunately gets drowned out by all the noise.

The film is massive in cast, battle and scale. I think it loses itself in all of that, but it's still full of heart.

La batalla de los cinco ejércitos complacerá a las audiencias con algunas de sus espectaculares secuencias de acción, pero es la idea de que es el cierre de un capítulo lo que termina por darle un elemento nostálgico a la película.
