He is, and his joy oozes out of each shot, scene and delirious clash of the Tolkien titans. Bilbo sees Thorin going mad and tries to help. The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies. Director: Writers: , , , , Starring: , , , , , Producers: , , , , , » The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Blu-ray Review Reviewed by , November 9, 2015 The extended editions of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films are widely considered superior to their theatrical version predecessors. With Smaug and the Necromancer out of the way among other developments, like Bard's semi-reluctant rise to leader of men , it's on to the protracted second act of The Battle of the Five Armies.

It's not that Jackson isn't passionate about the film he's made. That initial reluctance seeps into The Battle of the Five Armies. The good news is the cast is terrific, Jackson's battle scenes are reasonably exciting, and several memorable character beats help it cross the finish line with some dignity. Jackson should have stuck with a lean, mean two films, shaving the fat, ditching the filler, and sticking with the core of everything that makes J. There are several admittedly moving character beats, the majority of which prevent the film from leaping foolishly into heap after heap of Big Dumb Fun. Orcs, dwarves, mythical beings and individuals get ready for war.
Jackson didn't have a burning desire to make The Hobbit trilogy, though; signing on only after Guillermo del Toro bowed out. But even worse, Bilbo gets put on a knife edge and finds himself fighting with Hobbit warfare with all of his might for his dwarf-friends, as the hope for Middle-Earth is all put in Bilbo's hands. Not tacked onto the opening of the third as a notably truncated ten-minute vignette. But with other armies such as the elves and the men of Lake-Town, which are unsure to be trusted, are put to the ultimate test when Smaug's wrath, Azog's sheer strength, and Sauron's force of complete ends attack. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. The Battle of the Five Armies is a decently engaging three-star amusement park ride, but be warned: the more you scrutinize, the deeper you look, and the closer you examine all the moving parts, the more dissatisfied you're likely to become. The worms from Tremors make a cameo.
There's very little ground left to cover in The Battle of the Five Armies and plenty of time to cover it, making it the most bloated film in The Hobbit trilogy despite having the shortest runtime of any entry in the six-movie Rings saga. Be it the theatrical version or the new R-rated Extended Edition cut, The Battle of the Five Armies is more successful when viewed solely as a conclusion of Jackson's Hobbit trilogy. Movie magic gives way to cheap tricks, character drama is often minimalized, and too much heavy lifting is left to the always excellent cast, who aren't given much to work with in Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens' grunt-heavy screenplay. Meanwhile, half a world away, Gandalf Ian McKellan had been captured by the Necromancer also Cumberbatch , who was revealed to be that ancient evil, Sauron. Even the darkest scenes look great, without much to nitpick or criticize.
But when clouds and fog unexpectedly roll in, they quickly realize that getting off the mountain is going to be a real challenge. Like butter scraped over too much bread. There were primary characters passing on? Alas, the 164-minute extended cut doesn't help matters all that much. There's some minor but noticeable crush here and there, as well as a few anomalies born from Jackson's at-times aggressive digital color grading and green-screen trickery, but none of it proves all that distracting. Gracious, genuine… all things considered, what difference does it make? Freeman's scenes with Armitage and McKellan are among the film's best, Pace exudes authority and fury with unnerving focus, the Company actors seize a number of sequences and declare them their own Turner, Graham McTavish, Ken Stott and Dean O'Gorman chief among them , and Lilly flexes her dramatic muscle, even as Tauriel remains one of Jackson's more controversial additions to the story.
And the final word in what was once a heated debate -- should The Hobbit have been split into three films? Detail is terrific too, with crisp, razor-sharp edges, refined textures and revealing close-ups. Colors are largely bleak and wintry, with searing skies and ominous shadows framing a rather stark image, gray, blue and purple tones dominating the palette throughout the film's titular battle, and high contrast whitewashing a number of overcast scenes. Just over the course of penning this review, my trigger finger has been itching, tempting me to drop my movie score another half-point. The problem is both subplots are resolved so hastily that the film begins its first-act run on a bad ankle, stumbling into an anticlimactic hitch from the get-go. The signal towers used by the orcs and goblin hordes to coordinate field movements are an especially subtle but nice touch.
As The Battle of the Five Armies lurches off the starting line, Jackson makes all too quick work of both storylines; pitting Bard the Bowman Luke Evans and his last black arrow against Smaug the Magnificent in a fight atop a burning Laketown tower, and assembling Galadriel Cate Blanchett , Elrond Hugo Weaving and Saruman Christopher Lee to Dol Guldur to rescue the Grey Wizard from the clutches of Sauron and the ghostly Nazgûl. Rear speaker activity is engaging and absorbing, complete with precise directional effects, slick cross-channel pans, and an enveloping soundfield that's as inviting as it is immersive. You'll find few fans who'd argue otherwise. Bilbo sees Thorin going distraught and tries to offer assistance. Although perhaps more pressing a question is this: was the Sauron showdown left on the shelf until the last minute? Home Entertainment has officially announced the Extended Edition Blu-ray release of filmmaker Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Add to that dialogue that never fails or falters -- thanks to intelligible, convincingly grounded voices and flawless prioritization -- and you have a 7. A few decently strong character beats and touching moments have been tacked on, particularly during the new and improved battle with Sauron and at the end of the film, when several heroes are laid to rest.
Orcs, dwarves, elves and people prepare for war. The same could be said of The Return of the King I suppose, but its stakes were higher, sacrifices greater, villains more captivating, heroes more magnetic, and its battles more grounded and invigorating. The bulk of which are stronger than the film itself. Tolkien's original book the breezy, delightful adventure it is. Neither version amounts to a terrible film. The story doesn't unfold, it explodes.
