The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies ★★★★

The first half of this film is cinematic perfection; starting with the brutal destruction of Lake Town, an immense confrontation with the Witch Kings of Angmar and Thorins descent into madness. Sadly it then misses some beats, sidelines Bilbo and when the battle commences it falls foul of it's own ambition and a few shockingly bad pieces of dialogue. Luckily rallying and finding it's heart again for a simple, reflective, beautiful conclusion to this flawed yet wonderful trilogy that links perfectly for what is to follow.
