good documentary... bad actors
26 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie gave a lot of information about Tolkien and his life. It taught me some things I had never known before. But, throughout the movie they have people pretending to be characters The Lord of the Rings, but the costumes did not look the least bit real and even though they had no speaking parts, they were bad actors. At the end they were talking about another Lord of the Rings movie coming out... which I still have never heard of. It obviously was not the one by Peter Jackson. They showed a little of the filming process... and it all looked really fake. So, I'd recommend this for people looking for information on Tolkien, not for those looking for entertainment, because you won;t find it!
