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.

I'm particularly charmed by the dark twist on Disney on Ice, aka Thorin Fights Azog to the Death on Ice.

Jackson and Co. have taken a small bit of story and made it into something worthy of feature-length life, and that's as magical as anything within the film itself.

November 2, 2018
Taken together, the filmic Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies combine to provide a perfect six-movie cycle with a clean beginning, middle and end, allowing us to fully appreciate this mammoth undertaking for what it has accomplished.

It is action action action, beginning to end. You've already seen the first two, so go ahead and see this one. It completes the collection.

When all is said and done, the film is what it is: a good conclusion to a stretched-out trilogy.

There is a lot of crowd-pleasing chaos; most notably a fight across a crumbling bridge on an icy mountain that just might be one of my favorite sequences across all six films

The battles are indeed mammoth and this is undoubtedly the most deadly of the Hobbit series.

[Hobbit 3] maintains the light and often humorous spirit of the prequel franchise and still manages to remind us we are coming close to the actual LOTR with its lessons in the sins of greed and avarice.

April 25, 2017
With impressive battle scenes, unbeatable effects, good performances and a sustained emotional tension, Jackson managed to give a dignified closure to his interpretive meddling in Middle-earth. [Full review in Spanish]

June 21, 2016
The parallel universe of men, half-men, dwarves, monsters, wizards, evil spirits, and benign forces has been deeply satisfying, but it needn't consume a lifetime.
June 1, 2016
Battle of the Five Armies sets out to deliver the killer climax promised by its two prevaricating predecessors, and to some extent succeeds.
April 26, 2016
That frenetic fun factor helps keeps this trotting along, lessening the deadening effect of some of the characters' over-stretched personal crises.

November 16, 2015
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies may not stand up to the first two films in terms of story and characters, but it still manages to stand on its own as a thrilling, action-packed conclusion to the trilogy.

Is it still fun? Yes. Is it indulgent? Absolutely.
October 10, 2015
Often spectacular and increasingly involving, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies delivers a good payoff for a trilogy marred with issues of self-indulgence.

May 18, 2015
This is easily the best film of the trilogy. Unfortunately, that also means that it's almost as good as The Fellowship of the Ring.

April 13, 2015
A brilliant finale to a thrilling, if wildly afield adaptation.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
April 9, 2015
Jackson bows out of Middle Earth on a relative high, and fleetingly reminds us how great he once was in this world.
