ReelViews for movies starring 'Lily Collins'
Despite a few effective “gotcha!” moments and Pegg’s performance, the movie is too artificial and undercooked to work.
Works as a fantasy, an adventure, a dark comedy, a story of love between a girl and her pet, and a vicious satire.
Features some nice performances and contains some strong material but, as a whole, the movie is too slow and too long to really work.
More like the dramatization of an Encyclopedia Britannica entry than a fully rendered movie, "Tolkien" loses sight of the character.
