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.
In a flashback, Bilbo recalls Smaug telling him that he'd almost be willing to give the Arkenstone to "Thorin Oakenshield" just to watch it drive him mad. Smaug has no particular reason to know the name of the grandson of the king he deposed from Erebor, and since he's been sealed inside the lonely mountain ever since, he certainly wouldn't know the "Oakenshield" name that Thorin earned in a battle at Moria years later.

The movie got plot, action, emotions and above all the panorama of all the other middle earth movies. Martin is great, Richard is amazing as Thorin and every character has performed greatly. A fitting and a worthy bridge between the hobbit and the lord of the rings franchise with an epic and a thrilling battle sequence finish. Here comes The biggest blockbuster this year which is going to revolutionize film making. Watch it in the HFR rate, it is more spectacular and hold the audience to the edge of their seats. Botfa will serve both the fans and others as it got everything a movie must have even though it is high in action. The chemistry between actors is also spot on.
