    loved it - struck the right balance between the horrors of trench warfare and imagination necessary to turn his gifts into books for all time

    An excellent film. A fine script, cast, acting, cinematography et cetera. Undeservedly panned by too many critics. Tolkien has an interesting back story worthy as both a piece of fiction or as a docudrama. A good job done by one and all.

    Some good material but needed editing as it seemed to drag on a bit.

    Good film about the writer's early life. Edifying.

    A jumbled mess that could have had potential. It is as if the editor of this film took the movie stuck it in a shredder then tried to piece it back together. Timelines intertwine, but not to create suspense rather confusion. The acting could not save this film. I would rather had either a coming of age story that leads to war, let me care for the characters before trying to create suspense in loosing them. Why would you do the reverse?

    This movie according to me was an eye-opener in many ways. The story was more than just about the author J.R.R. Tolkien. It was about art, love, passion, emotions and most importantly it was about friendship which played a critical role in Tolkien's life. The journey of Tolkien's life presented a whole new perspective of life that can only be understood by those with a keen eye for art.

    I think you have to be a lover of his writings - as I am - to appreciate this movie. All others will likely be bored. One wonders why there's no mention of CS Lewis, or his later years.
