'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Review

I've never seen eye-to-eye with my colleagues when it comes to Peter Jackson's Tolkien films. I liked the Lord of the Rings movies but never loved them. (Well, The Return of the King is pretty terrific.) And I never hated The Hobbit like many critics did. This December, the final Hobbit film, The Battle of the Five Armies, arrives. I found it as entertaining and limited as the first two Hobbit movies. Expect a Return of the King and you'll be disappointed; prepare for battles galore and you'll have a fine time. My review is up at Screen International.
