Blunt Reviews Presents: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)


As much as I love Peter Jackson and the Tolkien universe, this really did feel like the end. I enjoyed the film and I still admire Jackson as a fantasy filmmaker, but there was so much excess it did feel like a lot of footage could have been cut out. The battle sequences were headache inducing and they were not as good as previous battles we’ve seen elsewhere in Tolkien adaptations. I’m still part of the folk who believe Guillermo Del Toro should have made The Hobbit films and stuck with two, but what we have already could be worse.
