I love this. All of it. Although I adore what Peter & Co. did, I think this movie, for sheer atmosphere, slightly nudges out his Oscar-winner. Really.

A joyless failure which has only the latent strength of Tolkien's fantastic imaginings to give it any merit whatsoever.

The cartoon version isn't that bad, espcecially when they couldn't use the first two books in the trilogy.

Works even less well than The Hobbit, which really is a children's story… overbearing folk-ballad soundtrack doesn't even gesture lyrically to Tolkien's poetry.
