Movie Review | The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
The Battle of the Five Armies is the final installment in The Hobbit trilogy. After finally reclaiming the Lonely Mountain, Thorin Oakensheild falls into a deep sickness of greed as he and the dwarves try to find the arkenstone. As Laketown survivors must deal with the terrible aftermath of the desolation of Smaug, several parties set their eyes on the mountain and it’s wealth.
I definitely enjoyed this movie, but it wasn’t my favorite in the series. I thought that the fight with Smaug in the beginning was a weird way to start a movie, and would have been better as a finale in the last one. The special effects were still very impressive, as well as all the fight scenes. I also thought that the conclusion of The Hobbit did an excellent job of setting up The Lord of the Rings. I would for sure watch all the movies again.
