The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 0
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 0/5

 

PROS –
1) Being the final chapter of “The Hobbit” trilogy.
2) Confirming that Bilbo’s quest was a disaster with a sad ending and it’ll be concluded by Frodo.
3) End credits song by Billy Boyd –  “The Last Goodbye”.

 

CONS –
1) The Title – It was supposed to be “There and Back Again”. The Battle of the Five Armies makes no sense and didn’t justify the title for an epic conclusion.
2) 11 minutes for Smaug ? The “incident with the dragon” lasted less than the discussion.
3) Too much screen time for Ryan Gage as Alfrid.
4) The movie is the worst entry in the entire series. The movie appears hushed. The CGI, the screenplay etc was mediocre and Peter Jackson wrapped up production to conclude the series for the sake of it.
