Barnald 364 Posted August 19, 2013 Share Posted August 19, 2013 I don't really get the 'danger' argument. I mean did anyone think one of the band were going to die during the Warg attack in TTT? Problem is, people then complain about Aragorn's 'fake' death, so those people can't have it both ways.And then there's Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn's arrival at the Pelennor Fields, which was basically a procession. The biggest battle in all the films loses all sense of threat.For me, the trivialisation of certain engagements in The Hobbit films is fine. The last confrontation with Azog had the right sense of threat to it, and perhaps PJ didn't want to give us two intense action sequences back-to-back, and thus made the one in Goblintown more of a straightforward affair.When you first read the book, the deaths of the three Dwarves in the final battle come as a great shock. I don't think anyone anticipated that given the tone of the book up to that point. Perhaps PJ is going for that as well, to give the culmination of the BoFA greater impact.
