Nearly 2 and a half hours push by before all the dust settles. While calm and collected in the middle, and maybe a little too calm at times, the introduction and finale serve as the catalyst for all the fun. The setting and costumes are astounding visually. The same can be said for most of the CG. The action also fills the need of bloodshed. No problems arise when it comes to the cast. Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage carry this film on their shoulders. Luke Evans, Ian McKellan, and Evangeline Lilly, among others, complete the picture. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is science fiction and fantasy at a high level; swords raised high in triumph.
