Good submitted by zmclaugh on August 14, 2018, 1:31pm A good adaptation of the book. Makes the story interesting.

Great! submitted by Rumshaker13 on August 13, 2019, 4:40pm Great plot and character development. Less action than parts 2 and 3 but still good

Outstanding Adaptation submitted by Meginator on August 23, 2020, 6:44pm This film is an excellent adaptation of a complex, lengthy, and beloved literary classic while remaining accessible and satisfying for viewers who haven’t read the books. The action sometimes comes very quickly, with characters rapidly moving from set piece to set piece, but the film slows down enough for the appropriate world-building and character development. Having just re-read the books prior to this viewing, I think the movie does Galadriel and Boromir a grave disservice, but Boromir’s more obvious character flaws do give the film’s second half the kind of immediate antagonist audiences look for. Between the lush settings, the expert casting and superb performances, and the classic good versus evil story at its core, this is a fully realized version of Tolkien’s work that succeeds on several levels.
