Critic Review - Time Out

Some story strands are crudely abbreviated; others fail to develop elements that were already well-established.

every character of the huge ensemble is appropriately developed throughout the 3 films and everyone gets their due.

Long after you and I are dead and buried the LoTR trilogy will stand as a pure masterpiece in the annuls of film history, your review will no doubt be lost to the void. In other words your pathetic review is worth squat.

I agree with alex t, it certainly is epic, a masterpiece it isn't. It was well executed for the most part, but really it was kind of film by numbers, Tolkien laid the blue-prints pretty well.
I think I'm more annoyed by the militant LoTR geeks than the actual film, all you ball suckers that feel so strongly should refrain from commenting if you don't care to go in to detail on why Andrew is wrong, it would seem that he has read the books and was left unfulfilled by the film in some aspects. Prove him wrong, don't just say he's wrong, don't be ignorant folks.

Read the books, watch the trilogy again with subtitles, and know that Tolkien didn't intend this as an allegory, THEN write another review.

If Geoff had said something on how unbearably long it is, I'd tend to agree.
But the critique that the story is the same, therefore it's "bad" makes little to no sense. His critique, although pretty well-written, is stale and doesn't say anything new.

In closing, I'd just like to say that 4 hours IS too long for a movie about pot-smoking kenders. Pete: don't ever do that again!

Obviously you need to watch the movie again.

No other film director could compress all of the events in the third novel into three hours of perfection like Peter Jackson did.
