I personally wouldn't take a 5 year old.
My DS is 10 and wants to go see it but I am not sure. He doesn't watch any movies aimed at adults except star wars (he hasn't seen revenge of the Sith though which is M). DS as read all the books and loved them. Sorry to derail, but would you let a DS 10 see it if they had read the book?
Kudos to your 10yo for reading all the books! He has definitely earned the trip I think, I only got halfway through The Hobbit ..
OP - No, imo 5.5 is too young. Watch it first yourself on dvd, when it comes out, then decide.
