Should I cheer that “The Hobbit” trilogy is finally over, or should I cheer that Peter Jackson actually managed to make a worthwhile “Hobbit” movie on his last try? It’s still not quite as good as any of the three “Lord of the Rings” films, though. As far as story, this third installment in the trilogy isn’t the most focused, and Martin Freeman completely misfires in his role as Bilbo Baggins. But Peter Jackson captures “The Battle of the Five Armies” beautifully. The set design offers a gorgeous, epic quality, and it’s all filmed beautifully in a high frame rate.
Note: If you suffer from motion sickness, I highly recommend that you do not see this in the high frame rate (HFR).
