The Hobbit - The Battle Of The Five Armies

The Hobbit - The Battle Of The Five Armies
The dwarves have finally reclaimed their homeland of Erebor and the treasure buried deep inside the mountain. But when Thorin Oakenshield becomes increasingly obsessed with the treasure, in particular, the elusive Arkenstone, and goes back on his promise to the people of Laketown, he soon finds himself in caught between the armies of friends and foes, each intent on destroying the other. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Hobbit – The Battle Of The Five Armies”.

∙ Bard escapes through the roof of the jail. In the closer view of him, Bard is shown slinging the quiver with arrows over his left shoulder. It’s still there when he starts running. The scene cuts to a far view of Bard as he jumps between rooftops and the quiver with the arrows is not on his back. They’re back in the next closer views.

∙ Fili and Kili and the others finally arrive at Erebor. When Bilbo mentions the sickness that’s overtaken Thorin, they race down the stairs and looking down at the treasure. In the close-up view, Kili has a bag with a handle that rests against his lower chest. It cuts to Thorin and then back to a close-up of the four dwarves and the bag is now gone.

∙ Radagast arrives in Dol Guldur to help rescue Gandalf. Galadriel helps to put Gandalf on the empty sleigh and Gandalf is empty handed without his wizard hat or sword. But a few moments later, when the sleigh stops and they look back at the mountain, Gandalf is now wearing his hat and carrying his sword.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! Thorin and the dwarves decide to fight in the battle. A large gold bell breaks down the wall and swings back and forth. But in the close-up of Thorin and the dwarves marching out, there’s no bell to be seen.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! When Thorin and the dwarves run out of the mountain, the close-up of Thorin shows he’s carrying a shield in his left hand and his sword in his right. It cuts to a farther right side view and Thorin is still carrying the sword but no shield; his left hand is empty. The shield is back in the next close-up.
