Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson returns to Middle-earth with the final of three films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's enduring masterpiece. Set in Middle-earth 60 years before the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy, the adventure follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of dwarves on a journey into wild, treacherous lands swarming with beasts of every ilk. After reaching Erebor and encountering the dragon Smaug, Five Armies assemble for an epic battle that could decide the future of all in Middle-earth.




  • Terrific, yet slightly marred by moments of LOW “humor”!

    By Another Beatles Listener
    “Biology-Affirming” does not quite translate as “Life-Affirming”. These films had to involve some grit and fire, but did not have to include such incongruous — thus intrusive — tripe as was put in . . . more or less with a crowbar . . . per agenda for (how lovely) branding these films as Good Family Fun For All; how very mod!! Such a Low “humor” is neither Tolkien nor, in any era, wisdom. The casting and acting for Gandalf, Bilbo, and Friends? Sublime. The treatment of Bilbo’s pity for Gollum is no less than celestial; such respect for kindness is crucial to Tolkien Books AND Films. Four stars here, for any or for all of these Hobbit films, in either Version; for further comments from me (if any are at all wanted), please see Reviews as via “The Desolation of Smaug” in the Extended Edition; for still more of my comments on Hobbit films, please see Reviews as via the Extended “Unexpected Journey” . . . and thank you!
  • Well...

    I thought the movie as a whole ended okay. I was sort of disappointed when thorn died though. Kind of unfair if you really think about it.

  • Awesome!!!

    By Awesomsauce1003
    Great movie one of the best, if you ask me. Let me clarify... I saw one person who said the Arkenstone was not in the original novel. Obviously he did not read the whole novel. Also, he mentioned Legolas. True Legolas was not in the novel, but that doesn’t matter. Legolas is from the same kingdom that fought at the battle of five armies. It would make sense for him to have been there. Also, Azog is a character in the canon, but in canon he was killed in Moria. His son, Bolg, was in the battle. To me, that is an easily overlooked detail, however, and I definitely won’t let that ruin the movie. Also I found on person who said they wanted the movie translated in Arabic. 😁😆😂🤣🙄
  • Yay! A second movie!

  • A Battle Worth the Watch

    By TEUR01
    It is one of the most epic battles in cinematic history. Battle of the Five Armies is a great movie and a great conclusion to an awesome film series. .
  • The Last Goodbye

    By NPS1365
    It's worth the watch. It ties in very well with The Fellowship of the Ring. One last goodbye to Middle-earth.

    This movie is both an epic and a great conclusion to the Hobbit trilogy.
  • Not Lord of the Rings, but…..

    By Gmv17
    I will say the the Hobbit trilogy isn't like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but they are great movies to watch. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is an epic and worthy finale of the 3 Hobbit films.
