Muddled and overly ambitious attempt to animate Tolkien's novel; it's penchant for "cheating" and just including sections of live action that's been rotoscoped looks a mess and the fact that it just abruptly ends in the middle of the story makes it feel like a bit of a waste of time.

This film has not aged well - plus, after seeing the live-action version, it just can't compare. It does follow the story rather well, even if it is rushed in parts, but I don't think the animation is particularly good and neither is most of the wooden-sounding cast. Back in '78 this may have been good, but today I'm disappointed.

Not as strong of an adaptation as the three live-action films, but still very cinematic for animation of the time. It's fun and entertaining.

I remember watching this film when i was kids, I was 4yrs old when this came out on release. I watched it at the age of 12yrs old my brother was 8yrs It's quite eerie the Orcs of Mordor especially how they blended real actors/horses into part animation integrated into the film. I liked it so much I bought it on DVD 20yrs later just so my daughter and partner could see it and they really enjoyed it a brilliant film of it's time and still brilliant today. I have been asked by many people who I know who wanted to see it so I gave them my disc to watch, so I highly recommend watching it only thing is it ends without the final 2 parts but still worth watching.
