I agree... [In reply to] Can't Post

... although I thought Saruman's depiction a little too much on the nose. A little too close to the arrogant side he showed in Lord of the Rings. It would have been nice to see him more subtle, more likeable in the White Coucil scene.

As for Radagast, while his depiction wasn't quite what I imagined, I liked it. It would have been so easy to depict the wizards in a similar way, just with a change of clothes colouring. So individual.

I was also happy to see Radagast hold his own against a Nazgul (although I have mixed feelings on the wraith appearing that early. A bit more mystery would have been nice). Shows that despite his bumbling depiction he is still very much a being to be reckoned with.
