Pau Linmanuelmiranda’s review published on Letterboxd:
You know when you take a piece of gum the looks thick and stretch it and suddenly it becomes thin and see through and about to snap? That's what this movie feels like.
This is Peter Jackson given too much power, the director's cut extended edition released in theatres. Every scene that should last 4 or 5 minutes seems to go on for 11 or 12 instead. If they hired an editor to cut 30 or 40 minutes off this movie it would be a significant improvement.
