Reviews
Mine: Badly disjointed and hard to follow, and I have read the books at least 25 times. Maybe my expectations were too high but this was just a mess.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Ambitious animated version of J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy saga covers 11/2 books of his trilogy (ending rather abruptly). Story of different races in Middle Earth competing for ownership of all-powerful Rings is inspired and exciting, but begins to drag--and confuse--during last hour. Bakshi's technique awkwardly combines animation and live-action tracings.
