Bolg | The Hobbit Film Trilogy Wikia | FANDOM powered by Wikia
His son Bolg was actually part of the plot, so what is this about? because he has to figure out the connection between the most dangerous orc . So I guess i' m just going to have to trust peter with the movies and realize he. Bolg was the son of Azog, who succeeded his father as leader of the Orkish treatment of Boldog, another a connection to Westron bolg. His son is immensely loyal to his father, since the time of the day he was born. He trusted Bolg with hunting down Thorin and the Company. He called him a fool.
All those IN CAPS phrases — all 4 of them, was to emphasize the differences between the story in a book and the story in a movie. And you couldn't do that without 'shouting'? Some changes or additions were very good indeed my personal favourite how they took the words from Aragorn's thoughts regarding Eowyn and put them into Grima's mouth, where they became wonderfully creepy.AZOG* The Defiler- Rise & Demise- The Hobbit
Some were obviously needed for pacing reasons, or to make things understandable to a movie audience. Some, though, were awful and there was yet more awfulness to be found on the extended edition DVDs.
Like I said, a mixed bag and we can expect the same again, I think. Plus a lot more of PJ's additions than before, because the material's been padded extensively in order to make it stretch across three whole movies, providing more opportunities for him to misstep. For comparson, LOTR is about a thousand pages long whereas The Hobbit is only ; of course some of LOTR had to be left out in order to make it fit into even three long movies, but still that implies a lot more 'added ingredients' in the three new movies.
I did — I gave a specific example, that in my opinion, the way they treated the timeline in the first part of FOTR was much better for the movie then what is in the book if presented in movie form. I did not mention gratuitous fight scenes or cinematic splashes of movie eye candy.
Exactly, but then there's no mention of things like, say, Gandalf losing patience with Denethor and actually hitting him and knocking him flat a distortion of character worse than what became of Faramir, and far less explicableor the Enemy getting into Minas Tirith and having to be turfed out by the Dead and other such dubious additions that happened in ROTK. To give an example: I just loved how they introduced him and later that wonderful sneer he favoured Boromir with when he was getting ready to loose another arrow to finish him off; that one moment spoke volumes about Orcs in general, and Uruk-hai in particular.
Bolg meets his death by the hands of Legolas. Bolg later reports to his father that he was attacked by Legolas and Azog yells at him because the Elf Prince survived and would now send an army after the Orcs.
He then tells Bolg to travel to Mount Gundabad and prepare a second Orc army for war along with swarms of Bats. Legolas and Tauriel follow Bolg to Gundabad and leave to warn the others.

Bolg later appears at Ravenhill with his second army to aid Azog. Bolg knocks Bilbo out with his mace before finding Tauriel and badly injuring her in combat. Before he can finish her, Kili arrives and briefly duels the Orc but Bolg proves to be stronger and he impales Kili through the chest with his mace's hilt resulting in the Dwarf's death.
In anger, Tauriel throws Bolg off the mountain and is dragged down with him. He is then spotted by Legolas and the two engage in a fierce duel ending with Legolas killing Bolg by stabbing a dagger through his head. The giant Gundabad orc then falls down to a large rock below, and was crushed by a giant boulder.

Personality Edit Bolg summoned by his father in Dol Guldur Hardly any different from Azog, Bolg is a murderous, callous, idealistic, merciless and cruel warrior. He is extremely sadistic, showing no qualms about massacring the Men of the Lake-town and even relishing Kili's death. He is also psychopathic and remorseless, shown by how he pitilessly orders the attack on Laketown. But he is highly intelligent, an excellent leader and tactician.
Bolg is enigmatic and powerful, possessing immense strength of will and superb tactical ability. He shows himself to be just as pitiless as his warrior father and is almost unimaginably determined and ferocious.

Despite this, he has a strong relationship with Azog as Bolg displays fierce loyalty to his father and a great desire to make him proud. He is a highly skillful hand-to-hand combatant and swordsman, showing excellent skill during his climactic fight against Legolas.
His fighting style, unlike Azog's preferred Warg-riding style that emphasized blows with heavy momentum, is emphasized with lightning speed and agility, as well as martial arts techniques and using the environment against his opponent. His skill as a fighter is later shown by how he is put in charge of the Orc packs whilst Azog stays to fight Gandalf.
