The Lord of the Rings Reviews
This film is, in a word, fascinating.
Aragorn is played by John Hurt.
Anthony Daniels (C3PO from Star Wars) voices Legolas.
I also want to give a special shoutout to the dude who voices Gollum. He does a superb job.
the rotoscope treatment gives it a very "epic" feel and the wraiths are properly creepy.. OK, so it doesn't cover everything, but a great interpretation! :)
Still a really ambitious project cramming huge books into an animated feature.
Sure the screenplay skimp over a lot of details but with what they got left they did alright and never rush it in terms of pace.
What really weighs this down, yet makes it more memorable, is the overacting in a lot of bits. The animation is a real hit and miss.
Try to ignore that closing statement in the end and you would have had this be a two for one deal.
