I saw the final movie in the Hobbit trilogy recently and to be honest I was rather disappointed. The first two movies were not great but I didn't give up on them out of a sense of nostalgia. I kept thinking that the last one would make it all worthwhile. Well it didn't. At 2 and a half hours that makes the three movie together almost 9 hours. I could read the book faster than that! There really feels like a lot of time wasting. We needed two movies at the most. It starts well with a nice fight with the dragon Smaug but after that it gets stupid. There are so many ridiculous things that happen it just feels foolish by the end. Give this one a miss unless you saw the first two and feel you need to finish the story. And even in that case it's probably better to just wait for the DVD.
