The final instalment left me feeling much the same as the previous two. A feeling of underwhelment and dissatisfaction.
There is no emotional attachment to the characters for me. I couldn't really care less if they live or die, although that always seemed unlikely to happen as the Orcs seem like they are literally made of chalk, weak, size but no substance.
Throughout all these movies I can't help but wonder how much better they could have been with Del Toro at the helm!
3 stars is generous but my love for Middle Earth isn't easily crushed.
A childhood classic! Growing up this epitomised cool. The Frog Brothers are awesome and this is the film that first introduced me to The Doors, even though they don't sing 'People are Strange' during the opening credits. I've seen this film over 100 times and it has lost some of it shine but it still holds up and is always worth a re-watch ever 5 years or so.
