Unhappy With Frodo
What I've seen of it so far (websites & trailers)
has me shivering with suspense; but one mayor flaw
will definitely be Elijah Wood, who is not
only much too young, but seems to have been casted
for the sole reason of getting the kids into
the cinema. As he is one main character, someone
should have taken care to get a better actor than this.
(this must not be taken personally, but is just
my emotional response to this face, which simply
didn't come up in my imagination when devouring Tolkien).
On the other hand I'm happy with most of the cast.
Peter Jackson did some fine movies, so did
most of the actors. Now it's upon them to rescue the project!
