Visually amazing but boring as hell.
I don't remember being this bored in a film since 'Dude Where's my Car', and even that film had some enjoyable moments. Whilst being pretty much flawless on the technical side of things, Lord of the Rings completely failed to impress me in the way it was supposed to. Fans of the books will no doubt love it, it's a wonderful adaption and the roles are accurately portrayed with some very good performances. My main complaint with Lord of the Rings was that it was far too long, and it's extreme length wasn't at all necessary. The film could easily have been condensed into 120 minutes and it would have made for a far more enjoyable experience. It seemed as though every scene took on the same structure and plot, for choice of a better word, it was just boring. When things finally started to get interesting towards the end of the film, i was too bored to care. For a three hour film to be successful, it needs to be able to sustain the interest of the audience and for me, Lord of the Rings completely failed to do that, i lost interest entirely. In conclusion, a good film in theory but there is no way i could sit through it again without a walkman and some magazines.
