The last “The Hobbit” movie has now been shown in cinemas all over the world. The long journey with the people of Middle Earth has now come to an end and people from all around the globe pours out their feelings into social media. Most of them, including myself, are feeling sad and anxious since these books and films have meant very much to them and have had a very big influence on their lives and personalities.
The movie is about the hobbit Bilbo Baggins who joins Gandalf and the 13 dwarves on a journey with the goal to reclaim Erebor, the home of the 13 dwarves that was taken from them by the big fire dragon from the north named Smaug. Since we now are in the last movie we are close to the end and so is the fellowship. They’ve captured the mountain and now their plan is to defend it. It all ends up with war breaking out between elves, dwarves, humans and orcs. Chaos erupts.
Smaug gets a very small role in this movie which I personally think is a little bit of a disappointment. I really like Smaug and I think he’s a cool character and having Benedict Cumberbatch making the voice of the dragon is just brilliant! I would’ve loved to see more of him also because of the stunning animation but sadly there is only a short part in the beginning of the movie where he’s in it. I had actually expected to see more of him.
As a very big ”The Lord of the Rings”- fan I can’t do anything else but to love this movie just as I love the other five movies. “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy is still better in my opinion because when they were made they didn’t quite have the same technology as they have today. They were actually outside on real locations filming those three movies and that makes them feel more real. “The Hobbit” movies doesn’t feel just as real because they are a bit too much edited and the colours makes it feel too unrealistic and even though they were outside at times they still brought lots of gigantic green screens.
After a number of different emotional scenes the movie ends in a very beautiful and I even think heartwarming way with Bilbo coming home to Bag End and as the movie ends it smoothly connects with the beginning of the first “The Lord of the Rings” movie. Beautiful.
