I would say this one was a bit strange. It tells a story well enough but to what end? Since the epilogue does show an ending of sorts (a sad one by the looks of it), I can't help but wonder if there was some deeper way to tell this. Much like the other review I noticed the constant audio popping, but it was occurring in locations that were certainly not edited in any way that might cause them so it must have been a source issue. There were one or two transitions that I noticed the audio shift, but not often, and the visuals were well done. I especially liked the matching title text at the end in the credits.

The opening prologue is a little choppy visually, but otherwise this works well and I didn't pick up on many transitions. There did seem to be a number of audio pops throughout though. The source is an old film and the audio is quite muffled, so I'm not sure if the pops come with the territory.

The ending is abrupt, but in fairness, Bakshii's LOTR never covered the entire trilogy and never got a proper follow-up. What's here is enjoyable and works well enough, boiling the epic story down to something quite short and simple that focuses on Golem and the hobbits (Peter Jackson - 9 hours vs. Adabisi - 15 minutes! ;) ). The credits are also followed by a short musical montage with animated footage drawn from another animated adaptation, This was a nice way to make up for the "missing" end to the edit.
