The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies does not mesmerize

5 second plot: First there is the matter of the angry dragon. Then the dwarf king starts losing it due to gold fever. He almost gets himself in a dumb war with humans and elves. But then everyone's attention is required to face a giant army of nasty creatures.

5 second review: Be sure to make it on time for this movie. Otherwise you'll miss the dragon. I'm not sure I'm a big fan of The Hobbit trilogy. I can still remember how mesmerized I was by the Ring trilogy. There are too many crazy creatures which makes The Hobbit less grounded and less 'real'. Also, where's the humor? It's all serious and no fun (except for some Road Runner moments). Of course, everyone's dying all over the place so maybe it would be a bit inappropriate to be joking around.
