Viggo Mortensen Criticizes Peter Jackson's Use Of CGI In The Lord of the Rings
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.16.2014



In an interview with The Telegraph, Viggo Mortensen revealed he's not really a fan of the second (The Two Towers) and third (Return of the King) films in the Lord of the Rings series. Here are highlights:

On not knowing the films would be a success: "Anybody who says they knew it was going to be the success it was, I don't think it's really true. They didn't have an inkling until they showed 20 minutes in Cannes, in May of 2001."

On the second and third films of the series: "They were in a lot of trouble, and Peter had spent a lot. Officially, he could say that he was finished in December 2000 he'd shot all three films in the trilogy but really the second and third ones were a mess. It was very sloppy it just wasn't done at all. It needed massive reshoots, which we did, year after year. But he would have never been given the extra money to do those if the first one hadn't been a huge success. The second and third ones would have been straight to video. It was very confusing, we were going at such a pace, and they had so many units shooting, it was really insane. But it's true that the first script was better organized."

On Jackson's use of CGI: "Also, Peter was always a geek in terms of technology but, once he had the means to do it, and the evolution of the technology really took off, he never looked back. In the first movie, yes, there's Rivendell, and Mordor, but there's sort of an organic quality to it, actors acting with each other, and real landscapes; it's grittier. The second movie already started ballooning, for my taste, and then by the third one, there were a lot of special effects. It was grandiose, and all that, but whatever was subtle, in the first movie, gradually got lost in the second and third. Now with The Hobbit, one and two, it's like that to the power of 10."
