Product Description

The last of three epic instalments in director Peter Jackson's prequel to 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. Set in Middle-Earth 60 years before events in 'The Lord of the Rings', the story follows the adventures of Hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), who, at the instigation of the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen), suddenly finds himself co-opted into joining a company of 13 Dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) to help reclaim the lost kingdom of the Lonely Mountain from the clutches of Smaug the dragon (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch). In this film, Bilbo, Thorin and the other Dwarves have unintentionally released Smaug from the Lonely Mountain and endangered the residents of Lake-town. Bilbo has to make a difficult decision when Thorin puts his desire to find the royal jewel Arkenstone before his loyalty to his friends. Meanwhile, Gandalf discovers that the evil Sauron has returned, commanding a horde of Orcs to attack the Lonely Mountain. Bilbo and his friends must fight for their survival as five armies meet in battle. The rest of the cast includes Luke Evans, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly and Christopher Lee.

Even if there wasn't an amazing book to compare against this would still be an awful film. There is just so much wrong with it just as a film in its own right. I don't know where to begin, the over use of CGI, the ease of killing the trolls (one hit kills), Bilbo's awesome rock throwing kill streak, the Were-Bear ordinance drop, the weird caterpillar eyebrows on the blonde elf, the cloaking device on the 4 battle-rams (where were they hidden?), the whole ram-raid CGI, what happened to the awesome armour the 13 dwarves were wearing, before they joined the attack? What happened to the big-ass trolls that were lined up in front of the almost beaten dwarves before the 13 hero dwarves ran out? They just fell over and disappeared. I could go on for ages about all the crap stuff. I cannot believe that Peter Jackson has made such a tragic effort with the Hobbit story. The book was so good and told its story in such a brilliant way, given such source material how could anyone turn into something so bad. Its like anti-midas, he's turned gold into a steaming turd.

So here it is at last – the culmination of Peter Jackson’s love affair with Middle-Earth. From the outset it’s clear that this will be as epic as anything we’ve seen before, and there is certainly no cause for complaint that the money spent on the movie isn’t shown on the screen. The long-awaited battle between Smaug and Bard the Bowman kicks things off – it feels very much like a continuation of previous events, but I can’t imagine anyone watching this won’t have seen the previous two Hobbit movies, so that’s not really a problem. Benedict Cumberbatch’s malevolent dragon is truly fearsome, and sets to the destruction of Lake Town with gay abandon, while Gandalf hangs helplessly caged in Dol Guldur, and Bilbo and his dwarven friends watch the carnage from afar. The movie is primarily about the bewitchment of Thorin Oakenshield however, and as the Arkenstone exerts its ring-of-power-esque nefarious charms on the dwarf king, friends become foes, and it falls to Bilbo to stand up to his growing madness, and rescue the alliance with elf Thranduil before the orc armies can divide and conquer.
There have been criticisms of the splitting of The Hobbit story into three films, however this kept me riveted for the duration, with less filler than you find in the average Hollywood drama and bags more style. When it was all over I felt glad to have been part of a generation for whom a decent cinematic treatment of Tolkein’s (other) magnum opus eventually became a reality, and suffice to say, I will be watching this and the other DVDs for years to come.

The version I watched was only 2 hours and 10 minutes, a reprieve from the 3 hour marathons of bladder hell and missed scenes. The film picks up right where the other one leaves off, although it would have been nice to have included the last couple of minutes of the second one. After the defeat of the dragon, the film goes into about 40 minutes of badly scripted drama, which included lines used in previous films, making it a bit trite. I was looking forward to the battle which unfortunately consumed most of the remainder of the film. I reached a point I was wishing the battle scene to end, although the title of the film hints at what to expect.

The use of characters not in the book creates some plot continuity issues as well as creating those that weren't. Peter Jackson creates personal drama in the film which was not in the books. His fight scenes which consume much of the film series are typically one line or paragraph in a four volume series. Clearly some aspects of the books have to go like a chapter dedicated to the care and feeding of Shadowfax. Personally in the middle of battle, I don't think that ring would have left my finger.

As far as purchasing, I am a true fan and will patiently wait for all the series to be out on a special edition extended Blu-ray at an outrageous price I won't think about twice.

Format: Amazon Instant Video
Depressingly the final part of the Hobbit trilogy "The Battle of the Five Armies" confirms that Peter Jackson's monumental achievement with Lord of the Rings has been undermined by a horribly messy prequel that has outstayed its welcome and is essentially "Tolkien for the X-Box and PS4". It is not surprising that the great authors estate have disowned the bloated enterprise. Indeed, Christopher Tolkien's sad observation even before the release of this series says it all. As he states "the chasm between the beauty and seriousness of the work, and what it has become, has overwhelmed me. The commercialisation has reduced the aesthetic and philosophical impact of the creation to nothing".

There is little point rehearsing the many departures from the book. Overall the sheer level of story padding present is best explained when it is recognised that the "Battle of the Five Armies" runs for 144 minutes, during which time it covers the six final chapters, or only 47 pages, of Tolkien's book. The final battle lasts forever with no real suspense. Legolas, for example, has become an elf killing machine, a sort of effete terminator. For him, an Orc is not so much a fearsome challenge as target practice. Indeed, the Orc's in Jackson's universe are now the most useless bad guys in cinema history. You sense that if you dropped them into a Disney film, Bambi would trounce them. Equally dear old Billy Connolly's role appears to be to play himself in Middle Earth in the guise of some sort of demented Rab C Nesbitt like character. Watching him swearing, charging into battle on the back of a computerised pig was excruciatingly unfunny.
