Its the end of an era. While perhaps not as epic as the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit Trilogy has been just as interesting, action packed, and a bit more humorous than the tale that decided the fate of Middle Earth. Titled 'The Battle of the Five Armies', its hard not be excited for what lies in store. Also, who doesn't like to see orks given a beating?

The movie starts with the Dragon Smaug expressing his displeasure at being woken from his slumber by setting fire to Laketown. After a valiant effort, Bard manages to kill Smaug with a black arrow. He then decides to lead his people to the lonely mountain, to collect the gold that was promised to them for assisting Thorin. Thorin, on the other hand has almost been driven mad by his search for the Arkenstone. He's forgotten his vows, his friendships and his morals. Along with the humans, an army of elves has arrived from Rivendell, led by Thranduil, seeking some ancient gems. Almost immediately, Thorin's cousin Dain arrives with a host of dwarves. The Dwarves almost go to war with the Elves and Humans, with all parties unaware that two legions of Orks march towards them, aiming to take control of the mountain.

Lets get one thing out of the way : The Battle of the five Armies is not the best movie in the Hobbit trilogy. Having said that, Its still really, really good. Many creative liberties have been taken, and all of them may not sit well with the fans. The final battle was also slightly underwhelming. It's still a must watch for every LOTR fan, though.
