The main issue of the first two ‘Hobbit’ films will have to be the lack of action. This movie answers all those problems since this stands as a two-and-a-half hour climax to this franchise, but does it actually leave an impression?, well not really. I have to be honest with you I didn’t really like this movie, sure enough those parkour moments with Legolas looked cool but everything felt necessary in the first place. Two movies is enough to cram all moments in this trilogy, no need for boring ‘Lord of the Rings’ tie-ins and forced romance.
The movie didn’t get to the actual battle until its 40-minute mark, and always come back to Stephen Fry’s assistant in the last movie, which appears to have a bigger role here. Totally forgot the character’s name, but that dude dragged the movie a lot. The filmmakers tried to make him as the comic relief, but the guy’s never funny. Actually, f**king annoying.
I’m a tad disappointed to how this film became of, but it’s still a satisfying way to cap off this franchise. ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ may not be the best of this trilogy, but no one can argue Legolas is still f***ing awesome!
‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ is now showing in 3D, HFR 3D, 4D, IMAX 3D and 2D cinemas nationwide from Warner Bros. Pictures.
