Peter Jackson’s epic Middle Earth trilogy comes to what critics are calling a fitting conclusion.
Anyone who has followed Peter Jackson’s epic filming of Lord Of The Rings trilogy and more recently The Hobbit will know what to expect from the subtitle of this final film. The Battle Of The Five Armies climaxes with a full-blown, blood and thunder conflict of what Variety’s Scott Foundas calls Wagnerian proportions.
Before the battle itself there is a score to settle with Smaug the dragon and the psychological drama unleashed by various characters’ lust for the gold he has been guarding inside the mountain of Erebor.
Jackson stages the battle itself with “a visceral feeling for landscape and physical action, a sure eye for elaborate battlefield choreography” that makes the cost of a ticket and suffering the ignominy of wearing 3D glasses worth while.
