The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the final installment of The Hobbit trilogy.  The dragon is amazing.  The war is magnificent with ingenious and occasionally funny tactics.  As much as I love action, however, I think the balance between plot and action is off in this movie.  With a clear focus on action, there is relatively less plot in this long movie than it should.  In addition, the dwarve-elf romance subplot does not work because they had little screen time before, and have even less here.
