I absolutely loved this film. The action was awesome, Smaug was awesome and menacing, it's darker and faster-paced than the previous instalment, Legolas and Tauriel were fantastic, more is at stake and overall, it was an incredibly entertaining piece of cinema. Some people and critics are still complaining about the film. That's fair enough, but for me, this was a fantastic film! It now happily sits in my top 5 favourite films, right behind The Lord of the Rings, which I didn't expect!

Actually, I decided to remove both Hobbit films from my Flickchart and from my top 20 films because I want to wait until There and Back Again comes out next year so I can view the trilogy as a whole, just like I did with The Lord of the Rings. Otherwise, I still love both those films!

Very good and better than the first, but nowhere on the same level as the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The first movie is better. I wonder what would have happened, if Jackson managed to the first and second movie into one three hour movie, then go with The Battle of the five Armies. I'm sure the outcome would have been better.

Easily the best of the trilogy.
