Plot Summary

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen), the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

    Unfortunately Frodo is his nephew, not his son..so congrats on reviewing a movie you HAVE seen and getting it wrong.

    memory7152 The Hobbit: There and Back Again is the third part of the prequels to the LOTR trilogy. The prequels are about the quest for Dwarf king to regain his throne and Bilbo\'s journey. In the LOTR trilogy, Frodo, Bilbo\'s son is the main Character. Congrats on reviewing a movie that isn\'t out.

    The film is extremely good. However if you\'re expecting LOTR you\'re out of luck. This is a very different type of tale. Of course that would have to mean you read the book and understand what you\'re about to see. So being able to read is important.
