42 Word Review: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies dir. Peter Jackson

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies dir. Peter Jackson (2014) Alternatively: There, a Feature-Length Fight Melange, and Back Again. Peter Jackson’s Gollum-esque craving to don the ring and turn New Zealand once again into Middle-earth gives Howard Shore’s impassioned score first billing while short-changing Martin Freeman. Too many armies, not enough hobbit.
