The Lord of the Rings Movie Review

The Lord of the Rings Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

The Lord of the Rings is a 3-hour long monster of a movie about evil wizards, elves, dwarves, orcs, magic rings and pint-sized heroes. Now you can own a copy of it on DVD which includes a preview of the Two Towers!

The Lord of the Rings is a three hour-long monster of a movie about evil wizards, elves, dwarves, orcs, magic rings and pint-sized heroes. Now, you can grab your own copy on DVD! It's about four hobbits (three-foot tall people) Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin who have to destroy a magical ring before it's used to kill everyone.

The hobbits hook up with the wizard Gandalf, Aragorn the ranger, Boromir the warrior from Gondor, Legolas the elf and Gimli the dwarf, to form the fellowship of the ring and kick some evil butt.

The Lord of the Rings' intro starts off with background info about how the evil super-sorcerer Sauron created the One Ring to 'Rule them all and in the darkness bind them.' Then it delivers a ton of special effects with huge armies going to war, evil wizards blasting stuff, sword fights and more action than the whole NFL season. Once you've recovered, the rest of The Lord of the Rings starts, and it's time to watch, as the fantasy world of Middle Earth is brought to life with awesome acting and incredible special effects.

The Lord of the Rings is loaded with fantasy cities, huge underground labyrinths, massive wizard towers and scary monsters. When the Cave Troll shows up and starts laying the smack down, it's time to hold your date's hand. When the Balrog rips up the screen, it's time to hold your mom's hand! Even the orcs are creepy monsters with freaky eyes and warped faces.

The Lord of the Rings isn't perfect though. It takes serious bladder control to last for three hours watching it straight through, but that's no problem now that The Lord of the Rings is available on DVD. There are also a few scenes where it's a little rough and where it starts to get boring.

Even with a few flaws The Lord of the Rings movie is totally worth watching at least once. Gary went twice to to see at in the theaters and he's gonna go rent the DVD!

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
