Raised the bar for fan films.
3 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a fan film, this was amazing. Best home brewed cinema I've seen in a good long while. Hell for most of the movies I've seen lately this was great. The actor portraying Aragorn did a smashing job. He carried the forty minute mini-epic.

The locations were astounding and often times I wondered if they'd filmed at the same locations as Peter Jackson's films. Gollum's voice was perfect and what CGI I saw was implemented usefully and without excess.

A good look into an unexplored part of the Middle Earth mithos. It gave them some room to work with their own originality. Not of the scope of LotR of course but still, very good, worth the admission price of nothing and I will be watching it again, likely very soon. If you liked the Lord of the Rings films, or better yet, read the novels, give this a go. You won't be disappointed.
