. But as usual, I have to be different. Orcs, dwarves, elves and people prepare for war. If the unnecessary Dol Guldur scenes and the Tauriel storyline were skipped, every good part from the book which is now cut out would have easily fit in. Here, the more serious scenes are a refreshing change to all the cheesiness, the ridiculousness and the exaggertion.
Prepare to be surprised nevertheless. The Durins Thorin, Kili, Fili didn't get a funeral. Meanwhile, Gandalf is rescued from the Necromancer's prison and his rescuers realize who the Necromancer is. He felt so much love for the world and characters he created, and put so much time, effort and feelings into his work. If you have any legal issues please contact the appropriate media file owners or host sites. Bilbo sees Thorin going mad and tries to help.
After the Dragon leaves the Lonely Mountain, the people of Lake-town see a threat coming. They live in the shadow of the Lord Of The Rings movies and simply paled in comparison and so going into The Battle Of The Five Armies I expected more of the same. On the one hand, it was great popcorn cinema in that it was very much entertaining and, of course, visually striking. To complicate things, the Elves - led by Legolas Bloom 's dad - show up too and then the Orcs arrive. Orcs, dwarves, elves and people prepare for war. Did they ever get killed? Meanwhile, Gandalf is rescued from the Necromancer's prison and his rescuers realize who the Necromancer is. Reviewed by micha-jetter 5 When I left the movie-theater after seeing it at the midnight-screening of my local theater, I was greatly conflicted about what to think about it.
Why did this have to be added? The fifth army never really eventuates. Please don't think this is the case in general. If you have any legal issues please contact the appropriate media file owners or host sites. But even worse, Bilbo gets put on a knife edge and finds himself fighting with Hobbit warfare with all of his might for his dwarf-friends, as the hope for Middle-Earth is all put in Bilbo's hands. Those two movies soon got changed into three and I was angry because I was convinced the story was too short for three three-hours-long movies. Would the film would have so much more terrible hard to imagine without a cliche and badly-written love-story that was added by Jackson and Walsh? Bilbo sees Thorin going mad and tries to help.
Why mention Legolas' mother and never explain anything about her at all? Isn't the Hobbit legendary enough, hasn't the book proved often enough it is a great story without a love-story included? Bilbo sees Thorin going mad and tries to help. Gravity scenes, dull Tauriel scenes who fell in love with Kili after having a conversation with him once or twice - same goes for Kili who fell in love with her and even gave her the token his mother, Dis, gave him. The Hobbit was a book written for children, and while there are scenes in the trilogy that will definitely be fun for children the dwarfs offering a lot of those kinda scenes , the violence and amount of killing and cut off heads make me wonder how suitable the movie really is. Otherwise you're probably someone like me and you'll leave the theater disappointed and grieving over the characters you love so much. At least take a minute to explain how it got divided.
Director: Peter Jackson Writers: Fran Walsh screenplay , Philippa Boyens screenplay Stars: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage. Orcs, dwarves, elves and people prepare for war. After the Dragon leaves the Lonely Mountain, the people of Lake-town see a threat coming. Synopsis Bilbo 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. Despite these, the score is still great, with the use of the familiar motifs still effective and the cinematography beautiful. It's by no means bad, it's just - as with the first two Hobbit films - unnecessarily padded, with lots of flashbacks and scenes of staring into the distance. Who, instead of focusing on just hours of battle, managed to create a world full of lore, charm, and wonderful characters? I know a lot of Tolkien-fans apparently love this movie and the trilogy.
I did enjoy the first trilogy, and thought that the changes Jackson did to the story were sometimes understandable, sometimes acceptable. I am terribly disappointed, and I have no idea whether the changes were necessary simply to milk as much money as possible out of the whole project spreading out the story to get 3 long movies, even if that meant adding many new things , or whether Jackson actually thinks he knows better than Tolkien. Description After the Dragon leaves the Lonely Mountain, the people of Lake-town see a threat coming. I'm still giving this movie a 4 out of 10 though, because I absolutely love the cast and I think they did a brilliant job, especially Richard Armitage and Martin Freeman. If I had not read the book, I'd get really annoyed after watching this movie and not knowing what had happened to them.
Where did those goats suddenly come from? I did like some of the character development especially the inner confliction of Thorin, Thranduil and Bilbo. Why didn't the movie explain that Bard became King of Dale? If you've seen the first two parts, you shouldn't be too surprised about that. Meanwhile, Gandalf is rescued from the Necromancer's prison and his rescuers realize who the Necromancer is. The amazing cast of this trilogy did the best they could with the awful script they were given, and I'm thankful for that. But don't forget we want adults to watch it too, so please, add tons of action and cut-off heads, too.
Bilbo sees Thorin going mad and tries to help. Meanwhile, Gandalf is rescued from the Necromancer's prison and his rescuers realize who the Necromancer is. It's not their fault that their character development was rushed because the movie was full of pointless Legolas Vs. However, if you mess with the story, if you include things that contradict the whole story, and if you essentially kill off the charm and warmth and concept of the book the movie is based on, things get dangerous. The story culminates beautifully and if you can get past the many changes that were made you'll see the finale of a wondrous tale and a battle on screen that blew me away.
