Action packed. Spectacular. Wonderful mountain and Medieval ruin-like settings. Gritty. Dragons spouting fire. Battle scenes. Did I mention battle scenes? The bulk of the movie is a seemingly endless battle (or rather a series of battles). All well done, with massive armies and lots of swords, shields and exotic animals, though the "bad guys" tend to die quite easily, after only a slash or two. One fight scene with Leoglis is a bit too unrealistic (even for this movie) with crumbling "bridges" that hold up just long enough or he is able to climb the falling stones with perfect timing as they fall away under his feet. Enjoyable, but not the best of the Tolkien franchise films. ( )

A power vacuum causes a small war.

I've noted before that there's a great two-hour movie buried in this nine-hour trilogy. Only about 20 minutes of that would come from this movie. Bilbo is barely in this. It's mostly one long fight scene, which is considerably less boring than the first two movies, but does not belong in The Hobbit. Peter Jackson's Bloodlust: The Movie would be a more apt title.
