I do not like how the nazgul walk

An epic tale and a massive undertaking to depict on screen. The attention to detail is perhaps a bit overwhelming, or just impressive. It's a great story coupled with a great musical score.

Good movie. I certainly like Peter Jackson's version a lot better, but this film is very book acurate and good for the time it was made in. I do agree that kids probably can't watch this, but if you're a Tolkien/ LOTR fan( or a Ringer) then you would probably like this movie.

you can defenelty say that.

This 1978 animated film is a mixed bag. Unlike Jackson's recent trilogy of films, It is very faithful to the books, lifting the dialogue directly from Tolkien's legendary work.

The animation is stunning and the voice acting is stellar. Bakshi employed only British actors, such as John Hurt, to provide the voice-overs.

However, some of the characters are poorly rendered; most notably, Sam Gamgee, Frodo's loyal companion.
Also, the film does not cover the whole trilogy, stopping part of the way through _The Two Towers_.

Altogether it is certainly worth seeing.
This is not a film, however, for young children, as it is rather violent/gory and dark.
