hockeyfan15’s review published on Letterboxd:
I had some fun with it, but it was definitely a step down from the other two. Some of the problems in the film included: the beginning, the end (somewhat), and the chemistry between characters. And obviously all the good stuff is the pure battle sequences that were signature Peter Jackson. I did like the Hobbit, but it was definitely a bit disappointing. Even though it was really awesome to see in AVX, you might save some money (and a bit of disappointment) by watching it on Shaw/Telus on Demand (or whatever you have).
