Why LOTR Sucks: A Brief Moment Of Glory For The Black Riders
January 25, 2012
I think the depiction of the black riders is one of the poorest aspects of all three films. But they do have one highlight. When the four hobbits are hiding beneath the tree, and the rider is above them on the road, it’s a beautiful shot. It’s a great moment of tension.
1) They got here by rolling down a hill and just happening to be there when he passed by. A very unlikely and unnecessary coincidence.
2) They escape by throwing a bag of vegetables to create a distraction and run away. Allow me to call bullshit.
