Three decades after the Empire's defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Stormtrooper defector Finn and the scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance's search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
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.
For the scenes where Galadriel picks up Gandalf, a dummy of Sir Ian McKellen was used. This dummy was called Michael Gambon (it was even included with that name on call sheets (as seen in the appendices documentary)) because Gambon and McKellen sometimes get mistaken for one another. See more »
When the horn is playing in Dale after the battle, there is only one shown. However, the horn proceeds to play double-stops (which are near impossible), then triple stops/chords (which are impossible). While it is possible that the horn in Erebor plays some notes, that still only accounts for the double stops and it probably would have been shown in the film. The cheeks of the man playing the horn remain inflated, suggesting he is playing a single, long note, while the music changes notes. See more »
You are changed, Thorin! The Dwarf I met in BagEnd would never have gone back on his word! Would never have doubted the loyalty of his kin!

The film's opening title is divided into two parts: "The Hobbit" appears at the beginning of the film, and after Smaug's death "The Battle of the Five Armies" appears. 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.
