RA in “The Guardian” – The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies review – packs a huge chain-mail punch

“But it is Thorin (Richard Armitage) who is the star of this movie, because of his internal crisis. Simply wading waist-high in these piles of gold has turned his head, infected him with “dragon sickness” and sent him delirious with power and greed. He is basically turning into something like Fred C Dobbs, Humphrey Bogart’s paranoid prospector in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948): suspicious of everything and turning on all his friends. It is humble Bilbo who must break the toxic spell.”
