The imagery looks great and it’s by the same creator as the original trilogy, but it’s just another instance of Hollywood’s march through unoriginality with prequels and sequels.
And another Hobbit:
The Expendables 3? I didn't see the first two. The franchise just seems like an endless Rolling Stones' Reunion.
But since the movies are selling tickets, I guess it's more of a statement against the audience than the producers, who are just making products the audiences will buy.
