Directed by Peter Jackson
Capping off his second trilogy, Peter Jackson could honestly be worse for wear. It’s always an achievement to translate such a rich world to the big screen, and you can see the efforts of his team have paid off: which is why it feels like a shame when the film falls into shockingly cliched dialogue and events which ultimately takes the audience out of the magic. Legolas can’t be that flawless, surely. In the end, The Hobbit is the movie series we now have, but probably didn’t need.
