‘The Washington Post’: The film’s characters – including the elves Galadriel and Elrond (played by Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving in the film version) are thinly veiled, and the plot doesn’t have much substance . The cast is okay, but not compelling. The dialogue is particularly clichéd and clunky, with too many chanted monologues about the search for “light” or the ever-elusive nature of evil.
Earlier series operators John D. Payne and Patrick McKay said that Season 1 story is not from the novel itself, but from the novel appendices recorded in the ‘Second Age’ inspired by the ‘The Lord of the Rings’ ‘The Hobbit’ thousands of years ago epic.
