Well, that was a thing. At two hours and 50 minutes, it was a very big thing (that’s what she said!). Was it a good thing?
It was. I was quite pleased by just about every aspect, though it was a shame the Goblin King wasn’t voiced by David Bowie. The movie didn’t blow me away quite like the first Lord of the Rings film did, but that’s probably at least in part due to the fact that now I’m used to the idea that fantasy films can be well-done and taken seriously.
As a Doctor Who fan I must also say that I was very much impressed by Sylvester McCoy who, as Radagast, really stole the show every time he was on screen. He had about 15 minutes in the movie, and really made the most of it. I hope this is a good boost to his career!
