The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)

The final Hobbit hobbles along with some clumsy furry feet to finish out the series. This one almost felt more disappointed than the middle film because I was expecting this spectacular finish, almost like the final Harry Potter film, but instead there was a man with a uni-brow stuffing coins down his corset. The dwarves were pretty unlikable in this movie, especially compared to the first film. I hate Peter Jackson’s epic fights where there are thousands of people fighting all at once, these movies shine when there are the one on one battles. I prefer those fights because I can follow them and appreciate the choreography that goes into them. As always, the costumes, sets and make-up are spot-on. No complaints there. Some of the computer CGI seemed a little weird. When the whole thing was over I just felt underwhelmed for the series. I loved this book and have read it a few times throughout my life, but this film left me with the cold embers of a pipe-weed pipe in my heart and not the roaring fire that Smaug would leave.

70/100
