I agree about the concept...

For me, it's the execution that felt too a little too much. The fact that the shadow bursts into a flaming eye with Sauorn in the centre was enough for that connection. It was the quick end-sequence that felt one step too far in execution for me.

I suppose it's a matter of taste... because I also thought the sphere of protection conjured by Gandalf's staff felt too video-gamey. It was too "sharp" for my liking. I preferred the sphere back in the Bridge of Khazad-dum sequence. That was subtle, and yet did not feel any less powerful. But I've really only seen positive reactions to that CG aspect too. So I guess it really is a matter of taste in the end Smile
