Review: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (New Line Cinema/Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/WingNut Films, 2014)The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies‘ primarily brings with it a sensation of relief that the muddling and ultimately middling affair is finished.

It’s actually quite funny to see Jackson reflects himself into Thorin Oakenshield: Both has been suffering “dragon sickness”, a compulsive lust for gold. And thank God now Jackson can rest his tired mind, get on with new projects and move far, far away from the Middle Earth. [C]
