Forced and uninspired tripe
25 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This should have been good. The costumes were there. The scenery was there. The people were there. The basis for the story was there to tell of a gap in the Hobbit world of elves, men, and other creatures.

Everything was there but the originality in the script.

This is as forced and predictable as one can imagine. It looks like it was written by people with serious issues and hatred, and it shows.

Too bad, because a lot of people spent a lot of time and money on this. The atmosphere could have been there.

What really suffers here is the lack of inspiration in the story. It looks so forced and so full of the usual Hollywood hate and propaganda that one can't help but be embarrassed for everyone involved.

Three words that best describe this are as follows and I quote.

Stink.

Stank.

Stunk.
