Peter Jackson is by far one of the greatest directors currently out there, but there is always a time when they make a film that's boring, and quite over the top. That's what happened with The Hobbit: Battle Of Five Armies.
First of all, where are the five armies. There are:
- Men of Laketown
- and...One Hobbit?
Second of all, while the "five" armies are fighting, the fight moves became way to repetitive. Dain, Thorin's unreasonable cousin, as said by Gandalf, kept killing people with his head. I don't know about you guys, but he seemed to be doing nothing but tapping them, and then they would die. He would hit the people a few times with his hammer, but once with his head?
The fight scene between Azog the Defiler and Thorin at the end was nothing but cheesy. How he stepped off the ice, let him fall. I mean, seriously? And then, to make things worse, he stabs his foot after Thorin thinks he is dead. Let's rewind for a second; if you're trying to kill him, don't walk with him and watch him swim and suffocate. STAB HIM!!! If he stabbed you with a dagger, I'm pretty sure a sword can too cut through the ice. In result of being stupid, you died.
I must say that the way the film was shot was quite annoying. To me, it was like an old, cheap video-game. To be honest, the first two instalments were ten times better. And the Lord Of The Rings were ten times better than those films. It's as if the series is going down and not up. In the beginning the graphics of Smaug also seemed like a crappy video-game character. These movies would've been better off if it was one long movie.
Another bad thing was how we knew who died and who didn't because of the Lord Of The Rings.
Let's talk about things I liked. The background seemed very realistic, and so did some of the orcs. What I really liked about the end, was how Legolas is leaving, but his father has a conversation just before he leaves. He told him to go north, I believe, and secretly introduced the one and only, Aragorn.
