MOVIE REVIEW: THE HOBBIT - BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES


So, directed by Peter Jackson, Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and Company are forced to engage in a war against an array of combatants and keep the Lonely Mountain from falling into the hands of a rising darkness. Thanks IMDB for summarizing it for me but basically this is the final of the Hobbit saga therefore you should be watching the previous two, unfortunately I have not written any reviews for the movie =/. 

THE GOOD

Anything which has started must come to an end someday, and this trilogy tells the story not perfectly but well enough for you to link it back to the Lord of the Rings. The fighting scene was fast paced and truly exciting couple with the ever so nail-biting fight scene towards the end. There are also the fight which features Saruman (Christopher Lee) and Elrond (Hugo Weaving) defending Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) from the 9 human ghost. We are also able to witness the power of Galadriel and the early rising for Sauron. 

THE BAD

There are still more to fill in the question marks. I wish there were more history been told between Saruman, Elrond and Galadriel. As their story seems much interesting but seems like they can't find time to tell everything. There are many parts which the movie moves too slow, I know those are necessary dialogues but it still feels like years as there are a war upcoming. 

CONCLUSION 

Peter Jackson once again show us why he is the best at action adventure director there is. Scenes although most of it on green screen is still believable enough to make you think that they constructed the whole scene. This is one of the Hobbit which is not the best but worth watching to end the saga. 

TL;DR: Hobbits, Elves, Dwarfs vs Orc
