Raves and Directors Cut Request!
5 May 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I just watched this film and I'm totally blown away by the quality and production value by a non-professional crew. I had a smile on my face through the whole thing thinking that these guys (and girls) had the audacity to try this and then actually pull it off...

For me the best thing was the cinematography. The shots and locations were amazing! There was a lot of variety in scenes which hinted at the different locations Aragorn was traveling through in his search.

The music and sound effects was another highlight for me. I found it seemed to borrow some elements from Howard Shore's soundtrack, so that I could still remember being in that world but it was still original. Really awesome job on the effects and 3d sound, especially with the orcs and the fight scenes...

Such a tough job to follow up on Viggo and esp. Ian Mackellan and I think the lead actors can hold their heads high.

For some constructive criticism I would really like to see a 'directors cut' (please?) with more time given to the outdoor scenes, especially in the first half of the film. It seemed like the director/editor wanted to cut them short so that the movie wasn't boring, but I think if you are a fan of the book, then this shouldn't be an issue. There are many parts of the book that are slow and really descriptive, but it's part of the mood to take time and establish the scenes. The photography is so gorgeous and there must have been a lot of video taken that's not in the final cut so why not see more of it?? I think it would also help the viewer get into the story more by drawing you more into middle earth.

Thanks for the inspiring and well made film!
