    ★★★★

    I love that they got someone like Ronny Yu to direct that movie. Especially during the big finale his Hong Kong action roots keep showing and it makes the movie better than it has any right to be. (But man, can you imagine the insanity if they had hired someone like Tsui Hark!?!)

    Still, I love how Peter Jackson not just understood that the appeal…
