  • Talk about beating a dead orc. In dutifully completing his prequel trilogy to his three-part Lord of the Rings triumph, director Peter Jackson has sadly saved the worst for last. show more

  • As Bilbo, Freeman is a pleasure to watch to the extent we get to watch him. His timing is brilliant — he gets the movie’s only laughs. He has tremendous sensitivity and an ability to seem like he’s about to say something — and then convey it without saying it. He could have made a great Bilbo. Instead he’s the one thing that has made this trilogy bearable. show more

  • The final installment of the Hobbit trilogy is the best, featuring more spectacular action scenes as well as the series' most emotionally resonant moments. show more

    I liked this one. Go see it. I've fallen in love with Orlando Bloom all over again. Luke Evans stole the show.

    Better than the other two and, overall, a good movie. It's still not in the same league as LOTR but, hey, what is? An early scene where the powers that be face off at the old abandoned fortress was the highlight of the film for me.
