Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
After the Dragon leaves the Lonely Mountain, the people of Lake-town see a threat coming. Orcs, dwarves, elves and people prepare for war. Bilbo sees Thorin going mad and tries to help. Meanwhile, Gandalf is rescued from the Necromancer's prison and his rescuers realize who the Necromancer is.
Towards the end of the movie, the following conversation takes place between Thranduil and his son, Legolas:
Thranduil: Go to the North. Meet with the Dunedain. There is a young Ranger among them. His father, Arathorn, was a good man. His son may grow to be a great one.
Legolas: What is his name?
Thranduil: He is known in the wild as Strider. His true name, you must discover for yourself.
But at that time, as we read about in Appendix B of The Return of the King, Strider (who is actually Aragorn II, son of Arathorn II, and later King Elessar) is a young boy living in Rivendell. Aragorn was born in Third Age 2931, and after the death of his father was cared for by Elrond in Rivendell. There he was given the name Estel (Elvish for "hope"). It would not be until Aragorn was 20 (T.A. 2951) that Elrond would reveal to him his lineage and name. After that "Aragorn goes out into the Wild" and gains the name Strider. The Battle of the Five Armies took place in the year T.A. 2941, when Aragorn was only ten years old, ten years before he would become Strider. See more »
The third part of the trilogy (?!) is by far the worst ever movie inspired, if inspire is the word to be used in any relation to this movie, by a Talkien book.
If Peter did it for money - I understand. I hope he is happy for taking the money from people earning 250 EUR per month in my country, and that is with the story which is about how gold eventually corrupts everything. In a way, he proved the point, didn't he?
But, if Peter truly believes that THIS was the Hobbit, than something is seriously wrong with his reading and directing skills.
Hollywood at its worst, 144 minutes of violence based on anti-war children book. Could there be a bigger nonsense than this?!
Fortunatelly, this gives an opportunity for someone to make a good Hobbit movie soon.
