Not the sequel to the Hobbit I expected

This has some of the animation style of the animated Hobbit movie, but the majority is a strange live action photoshopped to animated style. It's a bit jarring. Also it lacks the charm...Read complete review

This has some of the animation style of the animated Hobbit movie, but the majority is a strange live action photoshopped to animated style. It's a bit jarring. Also it lacks the charm and music the first movie had. Stick to "Hobbit" and the next sequel "Return of the King"

        Comments about The Lord of the Rings Animated Deluxe Edition (Blu-ray):

        I had just finished reading the entire LOTR's trilogy back in '77 when this movie came out less than a year later. Saw the ad in the movie section, grabbed the wife, and off we went to the movies. I kept telling her all about the 'neato' stuff in the book and when the credits started rolling at the end of the movie I angrily told the misses, "they didn't finish the movie"!!!

        Rumors abounded for the next several years about the conclusion of this film being made but it never happened. For me, it was better than the animated "Hobbit" movie but oh so disappointing in that it was never completed. Like I said, I had just finished reading the trilogy (for the first time) so the material was fresh in my mind and they just stopped the movie, like right in the middle of the story!
        grrrrrr.

        The movie is great, unless you're expecting something similar to the live-action trilogy (I wasn't). I ordered the movie on Feb. 22 and got an automated email thanking me and promising that the item would ship within one business day. Ten days later I call customer service to find that the item is backordered and it is "not our policy to inform customers of backordered or delayed products". I finally got the movie, but I am NEVER ordering anything from this website again.

            This is one of the first movie memories from when I was young. My older brother loved Tolkien, and introduced me to him at an early age using this movie and the earlier The Hobbit. It holds up well in its blu-ray incarnation, and brings back so many memories for me. Definitely a must-have for Tolkien fans.

              It's like they quit, after adapting the 1st two books. Viewer doesn't have closure.

                I love this film and have loved it since the first time I had seen it as a child. Great acting and emotionally engaging. The use of rotoscoping and solar flaring were excellently done as well. A fun film for all ages. It is like a condensed version of the newer film as it has the entire trilogy told in one film. Because of the fact that it's a whole trilogy cut into only a couple hours though it loses some important elements of the original story hence my 4 star rating. Still a great piece though!
