The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies English Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  CNN IBN | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-7
It's hard not to be overcome with nostalgia while watching The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the last chapter in Peter Jackson's trilogy of The Lord of the Rings prequels, and the presumed end to his massively successful journey through Middle Earth that began 13 years ago.

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-8
When Bilbo, Thorin and gang watched in fear as Smaug (Cumberbatch) flew away to torch Lake Town, little did they realize that their leader Thorin was going mad thanks to 'dragon sickness', lust for the castle's gold and the Arkenstone. He now refuses leave the castle or even

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Navin Noronha Rating-6
Saying goodbye to our favorite movie franchise can be very tough. You realize that this is the last time you will see the characters on-screen, and the last time you will be a part of their story. When The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ended, all of us were transfixed albeit with a huge

  •  Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-8
There’s a bit of Gandalf in Peter Jackson. Not just because he makes magic with CGI but like the wise wizard, the filmmaker follows his reliable instincts and is game for impossible challenges. Such gamble may not lead to consequences as significant as restoring peace in Middle Earth but the

  •  India Today | Review By -Rohit Khilnani Rating-7
Peter Jackson's The third and final instalment of the hobbit series, The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies is the big Hollywood release of the week. The film starts exactly where the previous film The Desolation Of Smaug ended. Smaug voiced wonderfully by Benedict Cumberbatch is on a rampage.

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Soumya Srivastava Rating-8
Often we are told of how third parts always spoil the whole franchise and it is not without cause (read Spiderman 3, Iron Man 3, Transformers). The only man to walk through the litmus test was Peter Jackson with Lord of the Rings: Return of the King and now again with The Hobbit

  •  Indian Express | Review By -Shalini Langer Rating-4
And so it ends. After five films, 13 years and at least 17 Academy awards, the tale of Middle Earth on the big screen has drawn to a close. You could say about time. ‘The Hobbit’ had already started running out of steam by The Desolation of the Smaug last year, and among the few good things

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Lakshmi Javeri Rating-7
So I’m going to come straight to the point and admit that I’m not a big fan of Jackson’s move to convert a tiny book like The Hobbit into a celluloid trilogy. I’ve been a lover of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works despite Silmarillion, and have loved how Jackson has taken the feted writer’s imagination

  •  DNA | Review By -Bryan Durham Rating-8
The final chapter in the epic The Hobbit trilogy, this film starts with the death of Smaug (Cumberbatch) at the hand of of Bard (Evans) of Laketown. The city is burnt to the ground but the surviving townsfolk make it out and head to Dale to seek refuge and a settlement from the Dwarves led by

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Rashid Irani Rating-6
It’s the end of an era. The third and final instalment of the second Middle Earth trilogy based on the works of JRR Tolkien brings the journey of the heroic hobbit named Bilbo Baggins (Freeman) to a stirring conclusion. It also wraps up writer-director Peter Jackson’s six-film opus, begun at the turn
