"Because sometimes an invisibility ring is just an invisibility ring.

No elf/dwarf love triangle - No necromancer adventures - Kili sacrifices himself for Bilbo at the end instead of Evangeline Lilly (who’s not in this film at all) - No orcs (until necessary in the Battle of Five Armies) - Laketown is about 10 minutes - Bard does not use his son as a bow - and the full story in all less than the length of “Return of the King."

After about 312 new edits and cuts and almost 5 hours removed from the trilogy, this single film combines the three Peter Jackson movies into one immense epic that accurately tells the story of Bilbo, while maintaining what new ideas and battles have been implanted in Jackson’s retelling (such as the Battle of the Five Armies containing orcs instead of goblins)."

Killstein argues that his version is what The Hobbit should have been in the first place. "Peter Jackson turned 1,000 pages of Lord of the Rings into nine hours of film, but how do you do that with a 300-page book?" Killstein says. "It became a quantity over quality kind of thing."

Low quality for the 3rd section
