Directed by Peter Jackson
I don’t have a whole lot to say about this movie that I haven’t said already in my reviews of the first two installments (An Unexpected Journey [LINK] and The Desolation of Smaug [LINK]). Ultimately, for all its flaws, which are many, I loved this film. For all its flaws, which are many, I love Peter Jackson’s vision of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth and love to revisit it from time to time. It saddens me that there are no more installments in the works despite a wealth of treasure that could be mined out of The Silmarillion.
