With the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Peter Jackson puts a cap on his Middle Earth Saga. And much like the way George Lucas wove his Star Wars epic, Jackson’s second prequel trilogy does not hold up to his first masterpiece.

There is an irony in all of this, since the Lord of the Rings trilogy – released during the time Lucas’s Star Wars prequels were being released – proved that a CGI movie could tell a good story. The Lord of the Rings had a rich story with complex character development and the special effects only enhanced the tale.

Unfortunately, The Hobbit does not have the same source material. The 1937 novel is only about 300 pages long and far too short for three movies. And with The Battle of the Five Armies – the shortest of the movies at 144 minutes – the thin source material shows.

The movie picks up right after The Desolation of Smaug ended with the titular dragon flying to Laketown to punish the people with fire. The destruction of the town and ultimate defeat of Smaug too the first half hour and then the other two hours contained a drawn out battle for the riches in the mountain.

We see Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) go mad with what was called dragon sickness while the Elvish king Thranduil (Lee Pace) and the dragon slayer of Laketown Bard (Luke Evans) look for their cut of the riches, which were promised to them by Thorin and then reneged.

Ultimately a CGI battle occurs with the Elves, Dwarves and Men fighting the orcs. An army of giant eagles ago come to the aid of the good guys to round out the five armies.

Much like Lucas’s Revenge of the Sith, The Battle of the Five Armies wraps itself nicely and connects it with the original trilogy.

There are some nice scenes in the flick, especially the one with Lady Galadriel (Cate Blanchett), Lord Elrond (Hugo Weaving) and Sarumon (Christopher Lee) coming to the aid of Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and fighting the ring wraiths. But those are few and far between as the movie does drag.

And even though, it’s called The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) is not the focus of this film and his fine work gets lost in the shuffle.

Looking back, a Hobbit trilogy would have been better served with shorter movies. Sure New Line and MGM want to make as much money as possible with their franchise, but if they kept all three around two hours each, a much tighter story would have been told.

Rating 6/10

A-list stars are always the talk of the town, because whether you’re a fan or not, it’s always fun to find out what movie stars are up to when they’re not on filming on set, or gracing the red carpet. Well, it turns out that some of Hollywood’s biggest stars have actually had some serious run-ins with the law that ultimately landed them behind bars. Not sure who we’re talking about? Check out this list of five movie stars who spent time in the slammer!

1. Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. is one of Hollywood’s most beloved actors, and his recent blockbusters include the Iron Man Trilogy and Sherlock Holmes, but he wasn’t always such a great role model. In fact, he’s also famous because he made such an amazing comeback. Comeback from what? Well, Downey Jr. is open about his prior addictions and how a string of drug-related arrests garnered him quite the criminal record, including multiple stints in and out of jail and substance abuse rehabilitation programs.

2. Mark Wahlberg

Before he became the A-lister we know and love today, Mark Wahlberg was quite the hooligan. In 1986, he was arrested and charged with attempted murder after attacking a man on the street and beating him unconscious. He was sentenced to two years in prison for the offense, but he only ended up serving 45 days behind bars.

3. Danny Trejo

Danny Trejo probably has the most lengthy criminal history on this list. Many people don’t know this, but Trejo actually spent 11 years behind bars. That’s right, 11 years! The future Machete star was jailed from 1961 to 1972 after he was arrested on drug and robbery charges.

4. Tim Allen

Tim Allen is another star that many people would never guess had spent time in prison. Surprise! Allen was arrested at Michigan’s Kalamazoo Airport after authorities discovered over a pound of cocaine in his possession. He later pled guilty to drug trafficking charges, and was jailed from 1979 to 1981.

5. Wesley Snipes

Wesley Snipes was once one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, but unfortunately he got himself into a lot of trouble with the IRS. In 2006, Snipes faced multiple charges including conspiracy and fraud, but these charges were dropped in 2008. However, Snipes also faced multiple counts of tax evasion charges for failing to file tax returns from 1999 to 2004. He was sentenced to three years in prison and he served from 2010 to 2013.

It’s pretty crazy to think that some of our favorite movie stars spent time behind bars, but luckily, the stars on this list have done their time and put their lives of crime behind them. Now, they can focus on doing what they do best—making movies.
