Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES is the final film in the trilogy, based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien. It follows the heroes into an uneasy alliance with the Elves against an invading Orc army.

Threat

There are some scenes of moderate threat, particularly when the dragon, Smaug, is laying waste to a town as the inhabitants flee in terror.

Violence

There is a great deal of moderate violence, both large scale battle sequences and more limited one-on-one fights. A number of people are killed with swords, arrows and axes, but there is relatively little bloodshed. What blood is seen is generally the result of fighting, with some minor contusions and abrasions on the faces of the heroes. The battle violence is also extremely noisy and fairly intense and there is much destruction of buildings and property.

There is some mild bad language - 'sod', 'bastards' and 'bugger.'
