I read this in a Variety review I think, and it really resonated for me.
Of course most everyone loved this movie. Because J.R.R. Tolkien created such deep, rich, complex characters. And he did something amazing with them that just doesn’t happen now – he gave them nobility.
This isn’t going to be a typical review because I’ve seen Pearl Harbor a dozen times. But I’m watching it while I cruise around the internet because I’m too tired to watch anything that requires thought. And with all due respect to Mr. Bruckheimer and Mr. Bay (because I’m generally a fan of them both) they ended it completely wrong.
