  • 5 stars Very good one!
  • 4 stars Really enjoyed this movie. Subtle, a little slow getting started but then found myself thoroughly engrossed in the story. If you are a fan of Tolkien, I think you'll enjoy it.
  • 5 stars Really entertaining, very well acted, excellent story line. The film is not biographically accurate however, like much of the film industry faith and religion are deemed irrelevant.
  • 4 stars It was slow but interesting. I liked how the story unfolded but just not enough of his artistic development portrayed. I recommend seeing it.
  • 5 stars I can't speak to the historical accuracy, but the film was moving and enjoyable to watch.
  • 4 stars Well acted and filmed
  • 5 stars Well done earlier bio of Tolkien. Beautifully done. Worth seeing. Made me interested to read his full biography.
  • 5 stars Great movie! Enjoyed the actors and the story behind Tolkien
  • 2 stars Tolkien was a devout Catholic, and his faith was the driving force in his life and in his books. The movie has sterilized this out, leaving a meaningless husk. The movie is still pleasant and well done, but it is not in any way a true representation of Tolkien.
  • 5 stars Well acted and directed, a pleasure to watch.
