The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies: Despite being the most poorly received it stands as my favorite
I was distinctly underwhelmed by the first two Hobbit movies, I thought they were good but just that "Good". They live in the shadow of the Lord Of The Rings movies and simply paled in comparison and so going into The Battle Of The Five Armies I expected more of the same.
According to both IMDb and the profit margin this was the most poorly received of the franchise, clearly people did not like the film by comparison. But as usual, I have to be different.
I consider this to not only be the best of the Hobbit franchise but also hot on the heels in quality as the LOTR trilogy.
The story culminates beautifully and if you can get past the many changes that were made you'll see the finale of a wondrous tale and a battle on screen that blew me away.
Once again the fantastic cast, stunning score, mind blowing effects and sheer beauty envelope you into the world of Middle Earth and I was gripped.
Yes its not flawless, but it is pretty damn close.
Action scenes are brutal
Still a lot of changes
Fili's death was poorly done
