    This is a MASTERPIECE
  • Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
    La biografia è volutamente incentrata sulla maturazione come scrittore di Tolkien, senza lasciare molto spazio agli anni della guerra e dell'insegnamento. I dialoghi sono impegnativi e prendono una buona fetta dell'intero film. Nel complesso si alternano momenti incalzanti a momenti in cui il ritmo viene un po' interrotto.

    It was beautifully built up, very touching - anyone who loves the hobbit / lotr I think it's a must watch!
  • Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
    Inconsistent in tone and forgetful of the literary basis for the film's relevance for large segments, Tolkien offers satisfying segments for fans of the fantasy forefather, but overall deviates too far into its war and English public school subplots to really tie back in to what fans may be expecting, taking too broad a look at general influences rather than the meat of the literature. Still, solid performances and production value will entice some fans. (2.5/5)

    This isn't a particularly revelatory or deep piece of cinema but it's gorgeously shot with a charming cast of handsome British young men that made for a lovely Sunday morning viewing. It certainly helped to be a fan of Tolkien's work but it's a lovely showcase of Nicholas Hoult's talent.

    They just don't make Tolkien's life compelling enough to warrant a feature length film.
  • Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
    Treating writing & acting make this film a Great War film that doesn't disappoint.

    Fudged on some of the facts of his life, but entertaining non-the-less.
