An epic ending to one of the most epic stories ever told. There's very little that can be said about this movie except that it was awesome. It was Visually spectacular. The acting was great. There was a little more comedy in this one than before. The ending credits song "The Last Goodbye" was absolutely beautiful.
Before you go see it, you need to prepare yourself for some disappointments. After The Desolation of Smaug
and where it ended with the dragon flying towards Laketown claiming to be death, if you go see this expecting some epic massive battle between Laketown and Smaug, you're going to be in for a little disappointment. Between the two movies, the dragon is a little anti-climatic.
Martin Freeman gave an award deserving performance in the final chapter of this adventure. In the beginning, he was just a scared Hobbit, by the end, he has become a battle hardened soldier who realizes the world is bigger than what he used to believe, and is now willing to do what it takes to get the job done.
Though i do have to say, all the previous movies, The Hobbit's 1&2 and all 3 of the Lord of The Rings movies, the ending dragged on about 20 to 30 minutes longer than it should. This one does not, the ending is short and sweet, which i like, because lets face it, the previous movies never ended where you were so sure it would and you're thinking "wait, there's more?".
If you haven't seen this one yet, you need to. It's is breaking records world wide and is well deserved. Make sure you have plenty of popcorn, and try to reserve your energy, because there will be parts so exciting and so awesome that you will want to jump up and scream "YEAH" and other parts that will make you so mad that you want to jump through the screen and join the battle. And for the emotional few, you may want to bring some kleenex as well.
