The movie is epic in both scope and nature, with rousing cinematography and plot twists that will either irate or satisfy. While it deviates greatly from the book, the storyline manages to capture the essence of the tale while drawing in the audience with every scene.
At the conclusion of The Fellowship of the Ring, I was completely on board for the next two pictures, completely invested in the world that had unfolded over the previous 170 minutes. This time around? I'm not entirely sure whether I'll stick it out for the next two films.
