The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Categories: [ TV/Cinema/The Hobbit ]



After having been woken up by Bilbo in in The Desolation of Smaug, Smaug attacks Laketown. He is defeater by Bard, who leads the survivors to the Dale, while the dwarves who had stayed at the town rejoin Thorin, Bilbo and the other inside the Lonely Mountain. Thorin has gone mad because the gold is tainted by the dragon and because he cannot find the Arkenstone (actually found and kept hidden by Bilbo); he also refuses to help the human refugees. Meanwhile, Gandalf is saved from Dol Guldur by Galadriel, Elrond and Saruman; Sauron is sent back to Mordor. Overnight, an army of Elves appears in front of the gates of the Kingdom under the Mountain, demanding their share of its treasures. Because of Thorin's refusal to share anything, the humans side with the Elves and are about to attack when King Dain arrieves with an army of dwarves. Gandalf finally joins them, announcing that the orcs, lead by Azog are about to attack. Nobody cares to believe him until the orcs actually attack. The allies are outnumbered but Thorin is finally convinced by Bilbo to walk out of the mountain and lead the dwarves. With a few other dwarves, they attempt to bring down Azog, who is coordinating the attack from Ravenhill. They are however ambushed by Bolg, who has been leading a second army of orcs. Azog and Bolg are finally killed, but Thorin is killed as well. The orcs now being defeated, Gandalf and Bilbo travel back to the Shire.
