    A retelling of The Lord of the Rings. As Sam and Frodo advance into Mordor to try to protect the forces of Gondor from falling into a trap, Frodo is unexpectedly killed by a rider on a Nazgul leaving Sam alone only a lonely desperate trek that only ends barely more cheerfull than Mel Gibson's attempt at Gallipoli.

    It wasn't a movie that entertained you. What it did was to show you the realities of war. Men in the trenches, YOUNG men, the filth, lack of food, fear. It is inconceivable that this was their lives for years on end fighting so that we can live our lives in peace and comfort. There is so little understanding and appreciation for what these men gave up. To get back to the movie. Yes I found it unrealistic that the job of warning the other regiment went solely to two soldiers on foot. It surprised me that the other regiment he encountered wouldn't have done more to help him in his mission. It's not as if saving 1600 lives was a little thing. Instead they give him a partial lift. In spite of that, I found myself rooting for the two young men and the success of their mission. I don't know if enjoyed it would be the right term, but I think it was a movie worth making and worth watching. The remaining soldier who lived played a good part. Even his giving away his medal for wine was relatable.

    We’re suppose to love heroes. I get it, But this movie dragged on with little or no plot. Waste of time and money.

    Totally unrealistic in many scenes. Action was weak and poorly presented. Events seemed staged and not the result of an actual series of events.

    The cinematography, editing, and digital effects are all very well done.
