A Roaring End to The Hobbit Trilogy

 
A Roaring End to The Hobbit Trilogy

Movie: The Hobbit- The Battle of The Five Armies


Star Cast: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Luke Evans, Cate Blanchett, Evangeline Lily, Orlando Bloom.


Director: Peter Jackson


Claps For: Being a visual treat and terrific battle sequences.


Slaps For: Not bettering the high standards set by 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy!


Popcorn Refill: None


Story: It begins with where the previous had ended, with the angry dragon Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) laying waste to Lake Town. Bard (Luke Evans) manages to single-handedly kill the fire-breathing animal and is hailed as the leader of Lake Town. With Thorin (Armitage) and his company camped on the mountain along with Bilbo Baggins (Freeman), word is spread about the slaying of the all-powerful beast. The treasure filled mountain of Erebor is seemingly up for grabs to the mightiest and everyone from the Dwarves, Elves, Men along with the ravaging Orcs, wants a piece of it. Thorin is corrupted by all the gold and is willing to risk as many lives as possible to keep it, even if it means going against his principles. With Five Armies set to clash, who will become the 'King of the Mountain'?


Performance: All the actors do the job required of them and the level is the same as what we have seen in the previous two films and also the LOTR trilogy. Difficult to mention a standout performance, but I must say that Evangeline Lily left me smitten!


Direction: Peter Jackson once again manages to deliver a stunning spectacle as we have come to see in his previous films. He goes all out with the war scenes and does a tremendous job of bringing it to the screen. This one definitely is more action-packed than the other Hobbit movies, with the right amount of drama too. The ending, though, dragged a bit.


Combo-on-Offer: There is very little new in this film, skeptics might say, but the action and drama does make for an enthralling watch. Not the best if you compare it with LOTR, but is an improvement over the previous film for sure. Fans of the genre will not be disappointed.


Verdict: It is definitely Claps for this one!
