“He’s gone, he’s gone, he’s gone”. Inspiring stuff.
“The Ring” opens with Hellish scenes: beautiful, evocative and compelling visuals reminiscent of the Fassbender version of Macbeth. Absolute carnage.
That’s about it for the good stuff. The bad?
Flabby dialogue and awful acting ruin anything remotely good. “He’s gone, he’s gone, he’s gone”. Inspiring stuff. And the plotting is non-existent. Gimli 2’s wifie suddenly becomes a power-crazed Lady Macbeth — a good idea, but there was no character arc. A shame, because the quadrangle of Gimli 2, Legolas 2, Gimli 2’s Dad and
Dwarven Lady Macbeth Gimli 2’s wifie is one of the few things in this series that had potential.
The show’s like a billion dollar budget fanfic, but less professional. The name reveal of “Mordor” is one of the most absurd things I have ever seen in all of my life.
Speaking of absurd, how did everyone survive a volcano going off in their face? No explanation is, or can be, given.
