The beginning of the end:
The last chapert of the movie starts as expected at Esgaroth. In the Desolation of Smaug you couldnt really see how huge the Smaug is. But once you see it compared to the town of Esgaroth you will stay amazed just like I did.
Even thou that in the movie the story goes quite nicely with Óin, Fili, Kili and Bofur staying in the town I still kinda dislike it. But like all diferences between the book and the movies I got over it.
Thorin: The sickness of the mind:
The way it is shown how Thorin isnt himself anymore is just as you would picture it while reading the book, at least in my case. The look in his eyes while he looks at the gold and they way the tone of his voice is expressed is great. The way he treats the company and makes them to look for the Arcenstone shows perfectly why his grandfather went insane.
Tauriels and Kilis story:
Well this was unnecessary but its the way that movies function this days meh. I would prefere that its about Legolas and Tauriel but well wat can you do. There is not much to tell exepte we all know Kili si going to die and she is gonna cry.
New and improved Azog:
Comparing him to the cgi effects from the first movie its hugely noticable that he is improved finnaly
I wish he looked that good in the first movie. If I recall good in my first review I said that he is badly made. So he now looks really good even gets his hand replaced for the battle a sword instead if that claw looking thing. His and Thorins fight will look fammiliar in the start. Azog found some stone block that has a chain linked to it and he swings it like its 2003 (hope you get the joke:P)
The fight is ammusing but somewhat predictable. Now last time I read the Hobbit was 4 years ago so correct me if im wrong. Azog is killed by Thorin just like in the movie but his son Bolg is killed by Beorn right? Not in the movie. Legolas kills him in a spectacualr battle. Was interesting and expected.
We see him for about 15 seconds :( I expected more!!
He jumps of an eagle and transforms into a Bear in mid air and reaks havoc to the orcs lines.
Thranduil and Legolas:
Thranduil is just like in the book exept the parts with Tauriel.
Legolas well all I can say that he is badass like allways and the scene I really really liked.
At the end since Tauriel is banished from the relm he says that he cant go back to wich his father asks him where shall he go. And he replies that he needs to discover that yet. So his father says something that just made me happy it made the story of the hobbit and LOTR bigger. So his says go to the north to the dunedains theres a ranger you should meet his is known by the name of Strider. Legolas asks for his real name but he dosent get a answer Thranduil says: That is for you to find out.
Nothing much to say about him. He becomes the "Aragorn of Hobbit" and shoots a black arrow on innpossible way.
The begining is awesome. It last very long and its fun all trols dont look the same wich is good. Its huge its great you need to see it. To describe it in detail would be to long. Its like nothing you have seen in the LOTR its bigger its better its perfect.
His entrance awesome (but nothing can beat the rohirrim charge) in his act you can feel the stubbornes of dwarfes. And the way he and hes army charge outnumberd on the orcs is typical dwarf like. They outnumber as you say? Who cares lets brake them. They take a shield wall formation and wait for them and in that momet elves jump over them and it gets on.
Thorins, Filis and Kilis deaths:
Even though I knew whats coming I wasnt prepared for this. Fili and Kilis deaths are brutal and I will let you see it for yourself. Thorins I cant remember was it like this in the book. He let Azog stab him so he can kill him.
Overall and why it made me sad:
Great movie better than expected thats enough by its own.
Why sad? Well because its the end no more Middle-Earth movies... It began for me 14 years ago and now its the end. It left me wanting more! For last 4 years I knew ill see the new Hobbit each december and now its gone. And since the gameing industry has given us nothing excepte Shadow of mordor since the BFME2: Rise of the witch king. NO THATS NOT TRUE. Yea I know but honestly what good LOTR games came out except Shadow of mordor ok maybe LOTR LEGO?
BUT IS IT REALLY THE END?
NO MY FRIENDS IT IS NOT! So few days ago I saw a post that says that Peter J. has a plan for making a not 3 prat but 72-PART SERIES OF SILMARILLION. Well I hope thats true by my count ill live to watch about 35 of the since the will go out every 2 years. So hope that will make a movie about the Witch King. Till then Extended blu rays of LOTR and HOBBIT trilogys.
SCENES TO LOOK OUT FOR
But before a scene that I thought that will be but it didnt (maybe in extended version)
At dol Guldur Saruman says leave Sauron to me. I expected a scene where he becomes an ally of Sauron but it didint happen
1. Battle opening scene
2. Legolas looking at the orckrist and rethinking about trowing it to Throin (Thats in the middle of the fight with Bolg)
3. Rallying of the dwarfes to their king.
4. And the very last scene in the movie. It starts with an old Bilbo looking at his ring and you hear a knock at the door to wich bilbo says: "No, thank you. We don’t want any more visitors, well-wishers, or distant relations." And forom the other side of the door we hear. "And what about very old friends?" and you know how the rest goes.
So here you go I hope you liked it.
Please comment correct me add something and share your thoughts on the movie.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
