Disappointing! Unfortunately, that is the first and only reaction that is spontaneously evoked after seeing this film which is dished out by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson.
"Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies", his sixth film and the last of the Hobbit trilogy, offers nothing exceptional other than prolonged battle scenes with no real trajectory.
If the first two instalments of "The Hobbit" were visually splendid with optimistically exciting adventure, this one clearly lacks in that arena. Who can forget those opus packed editions with dollops of action scenes that included fights, chases and romance? Sadly all these are missing in this current film and the spirit of the narration seems fatigued.
