RECENT MOVIE REVIEWS
I’ve appreciated the scope and splendor of the "Hobbit" adaptations. But if I were to give a two-word review of the final installment, it's "too much."
The third installment of the Hobbit series is an engaging sword-and-sorcery tale. It just hasn't have much to do with J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved book.
The middle part of the fantasy trilogy takes great liberties with Tolkien's gentle novel, but still delivers thrills and epic sweep.
In giving it the grand, elongated "Lord of the Rings" treatment, casual fans may feel Tolkien's tender prequel has been burgled of much of its charm.
Splitting up J.R.R. Tolkien's slim children's novel into three movies may be a bridge too far. But the first installment of "The Hobbit" still thrills and delights.
