A little bit too much monkey business...

As I always try to be blunt, I have only the following to say - the movie was way too long and the end way too abrupt. Peter Jackson really assumed that the 3+ hours movie time would be ok for all moviegoers. Come on! The Lord of the Rings formula doesn't work with every featurette you make Petey! Not everyone wants to grow a beard while watching a classic! This version was literally twice as long as the 1933 original. Uh sorry, lost myself there a bit. But otherwise not bad at all in the other areas.
