The original idea to do a film was started in about November 2003 but was shelved only a few months later due to a lack of experience and a dedicated team. It was restarted in November 2005. See more »
I was not expecting anything spectacular. How can you when it is only a fan-made independent film? But 'The Hunt for Gollum' was a lot better. Unlike the latter, 'Born of Hope' has an abysmally poor plot. While yes, the plot is at least in existence it does not really go anywhere, so you are not particularly interested in what is going to happen.
The acting was alright, even if it was hard to believe. The narrator was awful though. She ruined it for me.
The effects were good enough, and the costumes and the setting was commendable considering that the film was done on a shoe-string budget.
This is worth a watch, only if you're a fan of The Lord of the Rings. If not, you won't really enjoy it. Having said that, I am a fan and I was bored by it.
