So Azog is an orc king now? And meet Radagast the Brown, the screen time waster. Thank you so much Mr. Peter Jackson, for turning one of the funniest fantasy story ever created into a–failed gag ridden–nearly non-stop action movie.
It’s perfectly fine to make a ‘reimagined’ The Hobbit. No problemo. You can add and change whatever you want. Alámenë. We’re not some freaky Tolkien purists. But you don’t have to underestimate your audiences that much. We surely can manage to stay awake throughout the entire 169 minute movie without endless orcs and goblins (not particularly exciting) slaying orgy.
My Rating: 6/10
