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

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.

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

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.
