Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Look.  If you’ve seen the Lord Of The Rings trilogy and previous two Hobbit films you exactly know what you are going to get here and WHATEVER I say will have no massive impact because, let’s face it, you’ll watch it anyway.  And to be honest the film fully delivers on those expectations, and with a much shorter run time that any of the previous Middle Earth films.  The problem is it does nothing more than do what you expect. The battle scenes are good (but FAR too much CGI) but not as good or as epic as those in The Return Of The King.  The character moments are good, but again The LOTR trilogy did it all better.  It’s shot beautifully but in truth Middle Earth is getting a bit ‘been there done’ that by now.  So as impressive and pretty as all is, there’s just not enough new or original here to excite me.  Especially when Jackson has done it bigger better and with better CGI before.  So a final farewell to Middle Earth.  Please don’t come back.

Best Bit: Christopher lee kicks arse.  Kinda.
