We went to see Lord of the Rings in London yesterday.
Let me start out by saying that the highlight of the evening was dinner before the show.
There wasn’t enough special effects for it to be truly spectacular. There wasn’t enough music for it to be good as a musical, there was too much dialogue to keep the action from flowing, and there wasn’t enough story of the for it to work purely as a play.
I think they show tried to be all things to all people, and ended up being none of them.
For£25 MILLION to put the show on, it was sorely disappointing.
