For a film so determined to labour the point that lust for gold is bad thing it's so ironic that the only reason this overblown, shoddily written CGI-fest is a trilogy is... a lust for gold.
Okay, bring up the sad music ... snow falling ... slow motion looking around you at all the people who died needlessly. You're getting emotional ... wait stop. Billy Connolly, why are you head-butting everyone? We're trying to build a moment here to show how horrible war ... yes, yes they are cheeky buggers. Look there's a dead child! A child! So sad! No ... there you go comically head-butting again. Right after I showed you the dead child. Ah screw it. Just let the troll run head first into the wall and fall over again. The kids will like it I guess.
Disappointed. LotR - Return of the king is my all time favourite, and this isnt even close. What happenened to actors with make-up and masks? Real locations? The plot and action scenes are cool enough, but the rather bad CGI, and the overused Instagram philter ruins all for me. You were so preoccupied with whether or not you could, you didn't stop to think if you should.
