    Watched the third part of the Hobbit, Bard's kid kills them with ease, one arrow from any bow ko's them, and the dwarf guy from the iron hills headbutts them tenderly and they peacefully die.

    Bilbo takes out a heap of the really big ones by throwing hand sized rocks at them.

    a bit before that, Thorin and one other guy say something like oh its just a hundred goblins, we'll take them, then they show these big ass mutant looking things running in...not sure they could be that weak.

    To those saying its a kids movie, I think the book had the enemies in smaller numbers.

    I think its much the same in LOTR, orcs are still huge and armoured but get dropped by any kind of hit

    You want real orcs? Go to Mordor and fight them.

    Because the characters have super human strength in shit. It's the same shit with anime and other works of fiction.

    Anime and cartoons are the most guilty of this though. You'll see a non action/super power based series with characters easily dodging bullets and defying physics and all sorts of silly shit.

    Just saw it today. After five of these movies, it's something you expect going in, but there is always some annoyance over seeing these huge creatures with heavy plate armor getting dropped like children left and right.

    Sometimes. Sometimes I wish they were more grounded into reality though. I'll take the fight scenes in Cowboy Bebop over DBZ anyday :p.
