As Smaug breathes fire and destruction onto Laketown, another sort of dragon-danger threatens Thorin Oakenshield - the gold madness that seized his Grandsire Thror, King Under the Mountain of old.

The people of Laketown flee to the ruins of Dale, in the shadow of the Lonely Mountain, only to be greeted by an army of Elves led by Thranduil, marching there too.

Asking Thorin for their own fair share of the gold, Men and Elves are answered by Dwarvish defiance. Thorin seems overmatched until an army led by Dwarf-Lord Dain, Thorin's kinsman, approaches from the Iron Hills to the northeast.

Meantime, Gandalf, imprisoned in the ruins of Dol Guldûr, seems about to be finished off by the Nine Ring Wraiths, led by the deadliest of their lot, Witch King of the ancient, evil realm of Angmar.

And what on Middle Earth will happen when an enormous army of Orcs and Wargs suddenly pours out of tunnels under the earth, surrounding and threatening doom to all the other armies gathered at the Lonely Mountain?

Orcs and their Fell Beasts, Elves, Dwarves, Men - Five Armies join battle, and the result will determine the fate of the North in the gathering War of the Ring.

The dynamic shifts in tempo and the use of different musical motifs for each faction contribute to the epic scale of the conflict, making it a thrilling and memorable musical accompaniment to the on-screen action.

The music felt repetitive and uninspired, lacking the power to elevate the tension and drama of key moments such as Smaug's attack on Laketown or the standoff between Thorin and the alliance of Men and Elves.

The Dwarvish defiance against the Men and Elves is underscored by a rhythmic and defiant score that highlights Thorin's stubbornness.
