The Premise: “The Battle Of The Five Armies” picks up where “The Desolation Of Smaug” left off and continues Bilbo’s adventures with the Dwarves as they seek to regain their kingdom and stave off the onslaught of ravaging Orcs. Of course there is a whole lot more going on with Bilbo, Gandalf and Gollum but there is not enough space nor time for me to jot down for you kind readers here. Check out the massive cast one more time.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Of course having seen the first two installments of the series I can only say how excited I am for this to finish up so I can eventually add the complete Blu-ray editions to my library and watch them again. The collector in me actually had a hard time not purchasing the previous two when they were released. So tell me dear readers are you excited about this film as well? Have you been following the goings on in Middle Earth since we first got the “Lord Of The Rings” films? Let me know in the comments and I will see you next time.
